In today's complex and dynamic IT environment, efficient internal IT is paramount. Fishbowl Solutions, a leading technology consulting and software development firm for the manufacturing industry, implemented server virtualization from Evolving Solutions to meet their clients' expectations.
Problem: Increased management of day-to-day internal IT projects was infringing on time spent with customers.
As Fishbowl Solutions continue to expand and grow, management of day-to-day internal IT projects was taking more time. Fishbowl employees wanted to spend more time working with their customers and less time on IT however lack of common commands, slow restore times and time spent on server configuration had increased the amount of time necessary to manage their IT environment.
"Prior to working with Evolving Solutions, our employees spent 10-15% of their time managing IT, minimizing the time spent with our customers," states Tim Gruidl, CEO of Fishbowl Solutions.
Solution: Virtual Machine Storage using Server Virtualization solution architected by Evolving Solutions
"We weren't going to make a decision without seeing how the solution worked," continues Gruidl. "Evolving Solutions was able to give us that comfort level by providing us with a proof of concept in their Business Partner Innovation Center."
By storing virtual machine files on shared storage, Fishbowl Solutions was able to not only efficiently monitor and manage their IT environment, but afford the time necessary to develop a roadmap towards future expansion.
