Business Challenge:

Centre of Art and Archeology client (vmis.in) was hosted on physical servers which were collocated with Sify data center for last 3 years. Client’s 3 year contract with Sify and server amc was coming to an end. CAA was looking for a more cost-optimized solution with  fully managed support services.

Why i2k2 Networks:

i2k2 Networks offers dedicated servers for large enterprises and high traffic websites, i2k2 have a dedicated team of professionals for Public and Hybrid Cloud Solutions. i2k2 solution give the customer complete control with unmatched customization, installation, configuration, flexibility, scalability, and 24/7 comprehensive support. Customer do leverage our expertise and solutions to get the ultimate hosting experience for their website and clients.

Solution:

i2k2 Networks meet the CAA team and after understanding their current infra suggested the client to move to our fully managed cloud to save cost of server amc and colocation. As it’s a Govt. of India funded organization and it was mandatory for client to host site in Indian DC, i2k2 also offered the client a buy-back on old hardware.

We gave one-week free demo to CAA in our private cloud, before the final implementation.

Benefit:

  • CAA was impressed with website performance and our 24×7 support, CAA migrated on our cloud with 5 years contract.
  • CAA is quite happy with our services for last 1 year and it’s a WIN for i2k2 as we focus on our customer like a family.
