ClearPointe Clears the Way to the Cloud

To support Nilfisk’s high-demand Microsoft SQL Server virtual machine workloads, ClearPointe drew on its own experience with a SAN-replacement storage solution based on Windows Server 2012 R2 Storage Spaces technology. As ClearPointe’s own NOC solution demonstrates, Storage Spaces for the private cloud is optimized for high performance and takes advantage of the most modern techniques of software-defined storage.
Carsten Lausen of Nilfisk saved his company $79K per month, vastly increased performance, improved user satisfaction, and completed his cloud migration project in 5 months vs. the 5 years it took his company’s headquarters to accomplish the same migration with a different partner.
“The average company plans to dedicate one quarter of its IT budget to cloud computing” (IDG Enterprise 2015 Cloud Computing survey). With so much money—and the success of the organization—on the line, enterprise IT needs to be sure that the organization can quickly, efficiently, and successfully deploy a tailor-made cloud solution without breaking the budget. The key can be to work with a solution provider that has no other agenda than to help customers deploy and manage a modern, secure, scalable, and cost-effective IT environment. As such a partner, ClearPointe empowers the organization to focus its resources on innovation.
As Microsoft MVP and ClearPointe’s Senior Director of Technology John Joyner explains, “ClearPointe has a unique vision and business model that incents us to take the strategic view, guiding our customers’ IT journeys without lost investment down following a long -term roadmap to the lowest costs and highest agility.”
ClearPointe is a leader in managed services and private-, hybrid-, and public cloud-based solutions with vast vendor-agnostic experience and expertise across enterprise technologies, industries and applications. ClearPointe makes it a priority to deliver performance, security, scalability, and manageability—not to mention unmatched return on investment (ROI). As examples from ClearPointe implementations—both internal and customer solutions—will show, ClearPointe’s track record proves that “the best solution money can buy” does not have to be the most expensive or time-draining solution.
