Leading Construction Company Builds Virtual Reliability With Help From LIMA Networks

Industry: Construction

March 23, 2012, 9:42 pm -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- A world leading construction company has overhauled its IT systems with the help of IT solutions specialists LIMA Networks and, as a result, has cut its downtime and improved efficiency by no end.

The company, Tensar Technologies, is at the forefront of technology-driven civil engineering and road building and provides services that utilise modern technologies. Rather than following traditional methods of construction, Tensar is constantly searching for newer and better ways in which it can develop sustainable solutions for its clients. The Blackburn-based company employs over 800 people and has clients in many different countries.

However, due to its high-demand, Tensar requires a fully operational storage area network (SAN) system that is both flexible and stable, as well as giving a high standard of return on investment. According to Tensar's Network Manager, Steve Carroll, its current SAN solution was ‘taking an unacceptably long time’, which led to downtime that cost the company money.

At this point, Tensar Technologies turned to LIMA Networks for help. As a NetApp Gold Partner, LIMA Networks was able to present a new SAN solution that would enable Tensar to achieve its desired levels of storage efficiency, storage utilisation, backup ability and virtual system changes.

LIMA Networks installed a new SAN architecture with a VMware vSphere 4.1 operating system that allowed Exchange and SQL databases to be accessed by all users. LIMA Networks also fitted a NetApp FAS2040 as a primary storage device and a FAS2020 as a secondary device, which was located at the disaster recovery site. These devices made backups take minutes rather than hours, making Tensar Technologies more efficient, and helped to improve storage utilisation by up to 40 per cent.

“We worked closely with LIMA Networks who understood our business requirements,” said Steve Carroll. “I can now be confident a user in China who needs servicing can be helped, no matter what time it is in the UK; the flexibility and reliability of the new solution absolutely enables us to maintain service delivery 24x7.”

LIMA Networks has helped Tensar Technologies in upgrading its IT systems to a level that allows the company to get a much better grip on its services. To find out more about LIMA Networks, visit www.limanetworks.com now.
