SUPPORTING THE JOURNEY TO THE CLOUD FOR RETAILERS
Evans Cycles approached Redcentric with an aging IT infrastructure. Redcentric provided Evans Cycles with a suite of managed services, including an online managed backup solution, IaaS, and a complete telephony refresh. Not only has Evans Cycles predicted a 20% IT spend reduction as a result, they've also dramatically improved restore speeds and data security.
"Redcentric offers a lot more than just a ‘home’ in its data centres. Theirs is truly a managed service, leveraging not just their physical Cloud infrastructure but their people, their skills and their resources to deliver ‘end-to-end’ solutions and leave client IT teams to focus on more added-value activities."
