Customer Story: CSP’s Dedicated Private Cloud Drives Cost and Operational Efficiency

Oct 27, 2016

Community Service Partners IT committee decided in 2014 that maintaining a scattered system of siloed, on-premise servers was no longer an ideal strategy. New hardware costs, the end of Microsoft’s support for Windows Server 2003, and the growing need for HIPAA-compliant, on-demand data, made a transition to the cloud a logical decision for Clarke.

“Our organizations are relying more heavily on IT because employees need to have client information databases available at all times,” said Clarke, noting that the increased reliance would require his team to focus more on supporting members and less on infrastructure maintenance.

To make their move off-premise, CSP partnered with SingleHop, choosing its Managed Dedicated Private Cloud (DPC) solution with Managed Veeam Backups to run its member’s mission-critical applications. The DPC is a VMware-powered cloud environment custom designed and sized to CSP’s specifications. Although DPCs are single-tenant, private computing environments, they perform and function like public clouds and are available at a fixed cost optimized for resource requirements.

The whole process of migrating to the cloud at SingleHop is easy and cost-effective. Working with them day-to-day is wonderful. They’re fast and responsive, and we’ve never had any issues.

– Ed Clarke, Director of Information Technology, Community Service Partners
