“Green Co fit the bill in terms of locality, and impressed with professional customer service, competitive pricing and flexible solutions.”
Solomon Systech Ltd is a leading semiconductor company providing display IC products and system solutions to the global market. As part of acquiring a team in the UK, the company had a need for new colocation services.
They required two 9kW racks with 1Gb interconnect to the office, a VPN aggregator and redundant firewalls. However, the technology was only one aspect of the requirement; the company was looking for a solution which provided on-going management and support for the UK-based team. They also wished to find a local company for easier access, having experienced delays and challenges when working with the previous data centre in Slough, further from their operational base.
Having looked at several data centres, the firm chose Green Co to host their colocated servers. Green Co not only fit the bill in terms of locality, but also impressed the team with their professional customer service, competitive pricing and flexible service.
With over 50 engineers requiring access to the servers, the firm is entirely dependent on reliable internet connectivity. Green Co recognised this as a critical factor for the organisation and provided the best possible package within budget to ensure operational efficiency.
Up until recently the firm had relied upon the support from Microchip, formerly Atmel for their information technology management. After the sale and separation of the two companies, Solomon Systech Ltd valued the experience and guidance that Green Co could provide, including 24×7 support to address critical issues whenever they might arise. This is particularly important given the global nature of the business, which operates across time zones to work on projects.
Flexibility proved to be another positive factor; as an ambitious organisation working on a project basis, Solomon Systech Ltd could keep a third rack on reserve to allow for future expansion. This ensures a swift and smooth process when scaling up requirements and demonstrates Green Co’s role as a long-term colocation partner to their clients.
