MRIB Insurance Services
The challenges –
Getting the most from your investment in I.T. often requires some clever thinking and perhaps more importantly an eye on the future. CST’s challenge in this particular instance was based around future proofing MRIB’s systems and guiding them away from a system where reliance on a single supplier for multiple services had created potential vulnerabilities. By standardising their systems we provided a secure and stable platform for the future.
Hyper-V (virtualisation software), Exchange 2010, Windows 2008 R2
The solution –
4 new replacement servers were installed using the Microsoft Hyper-V failover cluster. This means should one of the servers encounter a problem it automatically flips over to the other, providing maximum resilience. A new firewall was also installed with load balancing capability so if one of the broadband lines should fail, again the system will automatically migrate all the traffic to the other line.
The result –
The new servers increased the performance of the network and the Hyper-V failover cluster offers higher resilience in the event of a hardware failure. The new firewall and the additional internet connection also gives greater resilience providing the client piece of mind that the network is not only safe and secure but robust.
