The Challenge

When EBC Group were first approached by TeacherActive, we found their IT environment had minimal visibility into their core infrastructure.

As fast growing business with multiple outlets they required a solution that would work across numerous sites and allow for future growth.

TeacherActive were running on a shared multi-tenanted system, which meant they were sharing their resources with other companies.

With internet speeds that were failing to keep pace, and a previous IT company that were slow to respond to support issues, TeacherActive were in desperate need of a high performance system that would support future expansion and growth.

The Approach

After consulting with TeacherActive, EBC Group conducted an in-depth analysis into their current infrastructure to understand where the system bottlenecked and affected performance.

EBC Group operated outside of TeacherActive's business hours to minimise downtime for a seamless migration.

EBC Group handled all communication with previous third party to successfully migrate current virtual servers to EBC Group’s in house data centre.

The Solution

"We have sourced a partner that has the capabilities and skill set to address our IT issues."

Migrating all of TeacherActive’s servers, EBC Group provided a dedicated private cloud infrastructure, and a new virtual desktop environment.

Previous performance issues were tackled by providing state of the art hardware to cope with increasing resources to their virtual desktops for better performance.

Virtual desktops for all employees could be accessed on the move from multiple devices such as smartphones, laptops and HTML access.

Dedicated fibre leased lines were installed for inter-site connectivity and increased internet speeds.
