    Unstoppable Computing: Enterprise Network Availability at an SMB Price

You rely on your network servers to share your business-critical files, applications, and data, as well as to host your email and Web environments.

    Case Studies

    Lenovo Drives Benefits as It Tees Up Storage Solution to GoLf Club’s Green Policy
    One of the issues around replacing new technology is that like-for-like swaps don’t necessarily bring the maximum benefit. Sometimes a more strategic approach is needed to see which option makes more sense over the longer term from a cost and a management point of view. Just as golfers call on their caddy’s counsel when choosing the best club to play a difficult shot, it’s so important for organizations to have trusted IT partners to provide the right advice to make winning decisions.
