Enspire Australia, an integrator, ISP and cloud computing specialist, is Australia’s first Cloud Service Provider to offer Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) using a Vblock implemented by Logicalis.
A pioneer of cloud computing since August 2006, Enspire undertook a strategic re-engineering process in 2009 which involved a bold evaluation of the company’s future. The resulting five-year strategy included the provision of hosted desktop services, which required infrastructure that was able to scale from an initial 1,000 users to the ultimate goal of hosting 10,000 users by June 2012.
Enspire chose Vblock to support its business strategy, which focussed on scalability, agility, service excellence, high availability and reduced cost. Logicalis was engaged to roll-out the Vblock infrastructure platform, which integrates solutions from EMC, Cisco and VMware.
Enspire was able to reduce infrastructure and application delivery times from ten weeks to two weeks. It also reduced support and operational costs, and delivered greater robustness, with zero unscheduled down time since the implementation.
