In researching better alternatives for its hosting, the company even considered a move across
the ditch. “Before we went that far, we emailed a few local organisations and were immediately impressed when Umbrellar came back to us straight away with a proposal which made perfect sense.”
In addition to consolidating the number of servers and logins required, Umbrellar’s proposed solution also reduced the cost of server hosting by 25%. As a specialist hosting organisation, improved performance and dedicated support is also a given, while an improved focus on security is considered essential in today’s environment of internet attacks.
As a Virtual Server solution, Umbrellar provides full control of the entire hosting platform; as it is fully managed, too, it allows 72dpi to get on with what it does best: the design and development of websites.
“Umbrellar promised boosted performance and security and reduced administration; that is what it has delivered,” confirms Donelley.
In migrating over 300 websites, Umbrellar called on the capabilities of its internal staff and its India Operations resources. Despite an already aggressive project plan, the migration was delivered on time, with 72dpi’s personnel working closely with the Umbrellar internal team. “They provided the resources to configure the sites on the new infrastructure and transferred all the data, while our internal team tested and managed the DNS migration,” he notes.
