DCS Awards names Navisite Data Centre Cloud Vendor of the Year
The Navisite team was delighted to be named “Data Centre Cloud Vendor of the Year” at the 2017 DCS (Data Centre Solutions) Awards. The DCS Awards are designed to reward product designers, manufacturers, suppliers and providers in the data centre arena. That’s why we’re excited to emerge ahead of the pack for our data centre and cloud services.
This industry recognition follows significant expansion to Navisite's managed cloud services offering, including its Managed Microsoft Azure® and Managed Microsoft Office 365 solutions. Alongside our existing NaviCloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service and Managed Hosting offerings, these solutions mean we’re able to create even more tailored infrastructure and multi-cloud environments that meet clients’ specific needs.
Underpinning these cloud services, Navisite has multiple state-of-the-art data centres in both the UK and US, connected via resilient network to ensure replication and disaster recovery solutions. We do this while retaining total transparency over where data is stored, thereby ensuring data sovereignty – an increasingly important business consideration in a shifting regulatory and compliance environment.
However, it’s not just our expanded cloud capabilities that have won us this recognition, the award was also a testament to real impact our solutions have had on some of our clients’ businesses, who provided reference material for the award submission:
- Navisite’s fully managed, cloud-enabled IT infrastructure helped MetricStream navigate the European compliance and data protection landscape to successfully expand its services to support customers on the continent.
- Navisite enabled Mortgage Brain’s digital transformation, transitioning its traditional co-location IT environment to Navisite’s resilient, secure NaviCloud Infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) platform. This allowed Mortgage Brain to develop and deploy a new integrated system to 1,000 Countrywide users in almost every high street of the UK, delivered on time and heralded as a success by all its stakeholders.
- Navisite’s flexible billing and cloud-based Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) solution enabled sexual abuse prevention charity Safeline to provide uninterrupted support to survivors and allowed staff to work remotely. This meant Safeline was able to help thousands more abuse survivors, grow its team from 5 to 19 people and save £40-50,000 in operations costs – as well as to secure new funding, with a contract win for £150,000 per annum.
We’re happy to have received this prize, and excited to keep working with our clients to create IT solutions that support their businesses.
