The customer

Ashgate Hospicecare is an independent registered charity that provides specialist palliative and end of life care to adults and their families across North Derbyshire in the UK. The hospice has a 21-bed inpatient unit, 16-place day unit and provides a range of therapy and support services on site. The hospice also provides a wide range of community-based care and support services to enable people to stay in their own homes for as long as possible.

The challenge

Ashgate Hospicecare wanted to replace its ten ageing servers with a new virtualised environment that would provide the flexibility and performance demanded by its new management team.

The solution

Working with IT partner AAG Systems, the hospice deployed Fujitsu vShape, which combines every necessary component, including servers, storage and switches, in a single, out-of-the-box, virtualised solution.

The benefit

  • Optimal availability due to zero downtime
  • Increased user productivity and reduced frustration due to more responsive operation
  • Instant scalability can provide new virtual servers at the touch of a button
  • Increased performance by 80 per cent, making a tangible impact on the overall business
