Our current IT setup was working fine but we were aware that our ageing IT infrastructure needed replacing and with a single point of failure, there was no failover. If any of our kit failed, we would be offline until the problem could be fixed. The cost of replacing our entire IT infrastructure would have been extremely expensive, so we were keen to work with our IT support team at M247 to find an alternative approach to our infrastructure needs.
