Verteks Consulting Completes City of Eustis Virtualization Project

The City of Eustis, FL, Selects Verteks Consulting to Deploy a Windows 2008 Virtual Server System.

Ocala, FL — May 1st, 2009 — Verteks Consulting is pleased to announce it has completed a project to upgrade the network at the City of Eustis by moving the City to a Virtual Server environment. Verteks Consulting was selected for this project based on its successful completion of similar projects for other organizations, and because of its experience with and in-depth knowledge of the City’s IT infrastructure. “This was an exciting project for us and we’re very grateful to the City of Eustis for selecting us for this important work.” said Don Gulling, president of Verteks Consulting. “This virtualization project is a major network upgrade for the City of Eustis, and we’re glad that the project was completed on-time and within the budget.”

“We were outgrowing our server farm,” said Mike Sheppard, IT Manager for the City of Eustis. “We’d had a file server crash, and our Exchange server was getting near the end of its life, too. Verteks was able to get us good deals on two nice HP servers, and with virtualization we’re able to run Exchange, SQL Server and our other server systems on two boxes as opposed to eight. It has given us a smaller footprint and saves on electricity and other costs.”

The project involved the installation of two new HP ProLiant servers, as well as an IronClad Backup and Disaster Recovery system. During the course of the project, Verteks Consulting’s engineers migrated the City to a Windows Server 2008 Virtual Server environment and cut the number of physical servers in half — reducing ongoing support and operating expenses, while improving reliability, performance and disaster recovery capabilities.

As a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, with an Advanced Network Infrastructure specialization, Verteks has well-recognized industry credentials in addition to a proven track record of success. “I totally trust their ability to handle all of our IT needs. They know our environment, understand our requirements and have done an all-around good job,” Sheppard said.
