"We now have a super-fast network that connects all our outlying offices with our headquarters, allows members quick access to our vast archive of horticultural information and images, protects their personal details and keeps us online 24 hours a day."

We’ve helped the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS), the world’s largest gardening charity with over 400,000 members, to create a secure, resilient and scalable IT infrastructure to meet the online demands of its growing global membership and its staff.

RHS turned to us after deciding its historic central London headquarters, the Royal Horticultural Halls in Vincent Square, Westminster, were no longer suitable to act as the charity’s data centre.

Robert Reilly, Head of IT for the Royal Horticultural Society, says, “We are a registered charity and rely on subscriptions, donations and sponsorship to fund our work, so how we deliver value back is hugely important. It was no longer economical for us to be using Vincent Square for our server hosting so we needed a new and efficient way of operating and managing our IT. iomart Hosting offered the world class, resilient, enterprise data centre facilities that we needed at a price we could afford.”

iomart Hosting used its expertise in providing highly available, high

performance VMware solutions and its Enterprise infrastructure to build a hybrid cloud platform for RHS in its secure London data centre.

The main RHS website which provides gardening advice, horticultural research and tickets to RHS events is supported by our CloudSure platform which allows capacity to be scaled easily and quickly in the event of spikes in traffic. The RHS’s internal systems sit on a large secure, private cloud.

“There were three specific things we needed to achieve with the move to iomart’ s data centre – UPS, connectivity and a high level of security. We now have a super-fast network that connects all our outlying offices with our headquarters, allows members quick access to our vast archive of horticultural information and images, protects their personal details and keeps us online 24 hours a day.”

Aspidistra Software produces a unique ecommerce system integrated to the Sage range of accounting and business management software in the UK. It has over 120 customers in the UK and Ireland and runs over 150 distinct websites delivered in a number of different languages for a diverse range of industries.

Until 2011 Aspidistra leased a large server to provide shared hosting for its customers. However the business was growing quickly and needed a new solution that was more scalable and would allow different customers to consume more or less resources without impacting on each other.

Virtual Machines (VM) in a public cloud was selected as the technical solution and Aspidistra tested one VM from a shortlist of three suppliers.  It installed its software, tested the performance and evaluated the support from each supplier.  iomart came out top and an initial order was placed for 30 virtual machines.

Paul Dorey, co-owner of Aspidistra Software, explains, “Aspidistra wants to be in the software and services business and not the hardware and hosting business.  Cloud services allow us to deliver specific capabilities to our clients with having to worry about the detail of their provision.  We moved from the public to a private cloud because it is more cost effective and gives finer grained control on how we allocate resources.  We no longer tell our customers how big the resources we allocate to them are, we just tell them it is enough!”

"The iomart team invested a huge amount of time and effort to understand our business and the challenges we face, through regular site visits and assessment of our existing estate."

office2office (o2o) provides managed procurement and business services to the corporate, mid-market and public sectors, including the UK Government. o2o’s business service offering includes secure destruction and managed communication and logistics. The company, which is listed on the London Stock Exchange (OFF:LSE), employs almost 900 staff across the UK and Ireland. The o2o group brands include Truline, Banner Managed Communication plus Accord and Banner Business Services Limited, which was originally part of Her Majesty’s Stationery Office (HMSO).

Originally o2o’s IT was focused around a single set of offices and one server room in Norwich – a legacy of its days as part of HMSO. However a series of acquisitions over the last few years saw it grow to such an extent that it accumulated offices at several different locations across the UK creating an IT environment that was extremely fragmented.

Vincent Cassidy, Group IT Director for o2o, explains: “As we made new acquisitions I knew we needed to reduce our risks and put in a scalable platform. Essentially we needed to evolve from a traditional IT department that was just keeping the lights on, to a flexible IT infrastructure that added value for our customers, enabled us to adopt more modern technological processes and allowed flexibility for future growth.”

“It was important to us that o2o would be treated as a very important customer and that was where iomart Hosting absolutely stood out. The iomart team invested a huge amount of time and effort to understand our business and the challenges we face, through regular site visits and assessment of our existing estate. This meant that when it came to the proposal they could address our specific requirements in detail. It really set iomart Hosting apart from other potential service providers.”

A large migration was undertaken which involved moving over 200 servers into iomart’s London data centre. The resulting group-wide virtualisation has vastly reduced o2o’s server hardware. There is a large VMware platform with built in backup, which provides the group’s DNS services, Active Directory plus SAN storage.

There are also two dedicated database servers – an MSSQL Cluster and MSSQL Mirror. “It was quite a complex migration but it was a smooth and comfortable process,” Vincent Cassidy says. “The support we’ve had from iomart Hosting has been excellent .The technical staff have been very responsive, superb in fact.”

"Users of Questionmark's European On Demand service want to know that their data is stored securely and that the data centre in which it is hosted is fully resilient and meets data regulations in the UK and Europe."

Connecticut based Questionmark, is one of the world’s leading providers of assessment management technologies.

The company required a private cloud infrastructure with dedicated network firewall to ensure data integrity for its European OnDemand customers and iomart Hosting was selected.

Eric Shepherd, CEO of Questionmark said: “Questionmark’s European assessment cloud reflects our commitment to meeting the needs of our many European and global customers for whom compliance with EU data privacy and security directives is paramount.

Questionmark’s customers deliver high-stakes tests and certification exams and they simply cannot compromise on the availability, reliability and security of their assessment management. They rely on Questionmark to provide 24 by 7 service, global support, service continuity, measures that target 100% uptime and a decades-long track record of providing trustable results to clients worldwide and we selected iomart as they share those same high standards.”

The company’s European-based OnDemand service complements Questionmark’s existing OnDemand services, which have been available globally for several years in compliance with the US-EU Safe Harbor program via a US-based Cybertrust-certified, SSAE 16 audited datacentre.

iomart Hosting’s data centres are ISO: 27001 and ISO: 9001 accredited and fully compliant with the relevant requirements of PCI DSS v1.2. They have full intrusion protection and fully disclosed technical staff and are operational round-the-clock 365 days a year.

“We are seeing an increasing number of customers opting for OnDemand as opposed to deploying our technologies on-premise — and the reasons extend beyond the speed and ease of deployment,” Eric Shepherd continued. “On-premise deployment requires more than the initial investments in server and network hardware, both of which depreciate over time; it also entails constant monitoring, daily backups, patching and updates that can be staff-intensive and costly. Customers are increasingly looking to OnDemand as a secure, reliable and more cost-effective alternative.”

The project data QA Software hosts for clients’ projects is mission critical to the company and its partners.

QA Software wanted to move from its existing hosting provider because its platform was coming to the end of its life. The successful and growing company needed a fully upgraded and more powerful solution combining speed of application and SQL data base, resilience and capacity, with disaster recovery. QA Software went to market and picked iomart for the mix of managed and colocation services it needed based on a combination of cost, flexibility, 100% uptime and proximity.

Brian Dodsworth, Managing Director of QA Software, says, “iomart was the obvious choice for us. They were very competitive on price, the technical support and sales teams absolutely understood our requirements and iomart’s London data centre was ideally located for our needs. The flexible service level agreement meant we could use the service efficiently and it has resulted in a significant cost saving. We believe we will have saved in excess of £30,000 by switching our hosting to iomart over the initial three years of our contract.”

The full upgrade, redesign and migration of the QA Software platform was completed in four weeks.
