The college’s on-site servers were outdated and slow, which meant they weren’t able to meet the needs of staff or students. A previous project upgrading servers had left the school more than a little gun shy. Carmel’s principal Ms Chris Allen called it “a complete and utter disaster.” It was eight to ten months before stability was resumed.
Dynamo6 was brought in because Ms Allen knows they have “the clients’ needs at the forefront.” The project involved upgrading all servers and also preparing for a gradual migration to the cloud. This approach gave the school something to work with in the short term, while also making sure the system would continue to meet their needs without disruptive change.
“They also came up with innovative ideas to arrive at the solution. They say ‘Tell me what you want to achieve and we’ll spec something for you.’ They always come back with something a little bit more than I could envision.”
