The Galway Clinic transforms its server and desktop environments with virtualisation

“The new infrastructure has increased our performance and future proofed the organisation for growth. We can now enjoy unprecedented levels of flexibility, scalability and robustness, while saving money on energy bills and reducing our carbon footprint”
Raphael Jaffrezic, IT Manager, The Galway Clinic
Since its foundation, The Galway Clinic had built up a small server farm supporting core business functions such as HR, payroll and office applications as well as critical healthcare-specific applications. However, each of these eight servers were supporting as many as five different functions and there was no disaster recovery in place. This meant that if one server went down it could affect operations significantly.
The Galway Clinic turned to Fujtisu to deploy a virtualised server environment which allows it to host as many as 50 virtual servers across three physical hosts.
The new infrastructure also allows Jaffrezic to provision new services and applications quickly and easily: “I can have a new server up and running within ten minutes, without having to invest in new hardware. This makes my life much easier and means we can deliver a more responsive service to our stakeholders.”
