Case Study – GarageFarm.NET
Here at Pinnacle Data we’re experts when it comes to anything to do with servers, data storage and other devices.
We’re proud to say we’ve supported and helped a number of different businesses in a variety of sizes and niches by finding, providing and installing a system that meets their data demands. In addition, we have also done all this at a price that suits their budget.
Here’s an example of one such client to give you a clearer idea:
GarageFarm "We are very pleased with Pinnace right from the start. From the offer, pricing and after sales services – everything was seamless. We will definitely use them again!"
We helped GarageFarm.NET – a data centre based in Poland that have server farms to service clients that require hosting solutions – who came to us in July 2014 with quite a substantial request.
What they needed from us
As you might expect from their line of work, they did have an understanding of servers and specifically asked for 128 BL460C G6 blades all needing to be housed within BLC7000 enclosures. On top of this they requested that the systems were supplied without CPUs.
How we helped them
With such a substantial order, we first offered the client a special discount on their requested servers and enclosures to make it more affordable for them. Firstly, we priced this as eight BLC7000 blade enclosures that were fully kitted out with BL460C G6 blades to total their requested 128. What’s more we used refurbished items and 3rd party memory to make the order match with their budget; as opposed to them paying more for new and HP branded products.
To ensure the client was also getting the best products we fully tested each of their individual blades with two CPUs and fully populated memory before we delivered them all. We also configured the refurbished blade enclosures to meet the client’s specific requirements before sending them on. The client then installed their servers themselves, but we still offered our services and support during the installation process to help deal with a couple of teething problems. All eight supplied systems are now running perfectly.
The benefits they received
On top of the fast and effective delivery of their systems and the great value that the client received courtesy of Pinnacle Data, we also offered other benefits as part of the service.
To ensure full customer satisfaction we included a one-year warranty on all their products, to cover them if they encountered any issues. We still keep in touch with the client to see if everything is working well for them and if there’s anything we can do to further support their needs. We are pleased to say though that everything is still running smoothly.
If this sounds like something your business or company could benefit from, we can help you no matter what size or industry. Contact Pinnacle Data today and we can discuss your requirements and recommend the best servers and data systems for you. Equally, we can help you to set up your new servers if you’re unsure of anything and will assist you with their running and operation.
We are open Monday - Friday, 9am to 5.30pm.
If you enquire out side these hours we will try and get back to you as soon as possible.
