Our third client we are featuring during our Summer Client Success Blog Series is Sun Tan City. Sun Tan City is the fastest growing chain of sun tanning salons in America. They grew from 15 salons to more than 200 in less than 10 years.
Unfortunately, the company did not have an IT infrastructure in place to accommodate the company’s rapid expansion. Their servers experienced periodic system failures and their Exchange servers struggled to keep up with more than 300 company email addresses. The company outgrew their server capacity and was faced with $300,000 in potential costs to obtain additional servers to support their growth, as well as the employees to maintain them.
Polleo Systems stepped in to help Sun Tan City by designing and implementing a scalable virtual server environment that would grow with their rapidly expanding business. Adding capacity in the future became as easy as making a phone call. The cloud provided Sun Tan City infinite room to expand with no increase in capital cost. The financial burden of purchasing additional servers, and hiring additional employees to maintain them, was averted.
Sun Tan City is the perfect example of a client challenged with keeping up with the data accessibility and storage needs of their organization. It’s possible to scale most business operations without the drain on resources or capital expense of purchasing, configuring and installing new physical hardware and software. By moving from a physical server environment to hybrid or complete virtualization solution, your storage capacity can scale dynamically – and seamlessly – to meet present and future demands.
