How 3 customers saved money with their hardware refresh
Data center, end-user device, and other hardware refreshes are necessary, but often costly, endeavors. SHI works with customers to develop and deploy tailored IT solutions while saving them money. Read how we did it for this city, law firm, and school district.
Imagine having to support a city of 44,000 residents and 450 end users with a dwindling amount of storage space. Sounds like a nightmare, but before disaster struck this Tar Heel city reached out to SHI’s storage experts to assess their IT environment, and propose and implement a Lenovo/Nutanix hyperconverged appliance. The solution saved the customer over $50k and increased the amount of available storage to 12 TB–more than enough for the city’s data to grow comfortably.
Is there anything worse than a slow network when you’re trying to get work done? That’s exactly what the 4,000 end users of this global law firm was experiencing before they reached out to SHI. After performing several data center assessments, SHI’s engineers recommended an HPE and Cisco solution that would expand the firm’s bandwidth, eliminate bottlenecks, and support future growth. The icing on the cake is that the project only took four months and saved the customer over $30k in procurement and deployment costs.
The days of students getting sent to the chalkboard to solve a problem in front of the class are coming to an end, as schools adopt one-to-one initiatives. This Louisiana school district needed to equip all 20 schools and 8,500 students with their own modern devices, and turned to SHI to ensure they received competitive pricing. Our Lenovo specialists recommended and deployed Chromebooks, Tiny Desktops and ThinkPad Yoga laptops, saving the customer over $10k.
