Ensors is one of East Anglia’s oldest, largest and most respected firm of Chartered Accountants. We have 6 offices across Suffolk and Cambridgeshire and around 200 staff.
We deliver a wide range of range of accountancy services and more to support our clients and their business.

Challenge

At Ensors we were using a Citrix/Equalogic environment over two sites to provide DR and Business Continuity. We were experiencing problems, the system in place was failing and backups were on occasion taking days to complete. We were engaging with a third-party organisation for support. However, it was decided that the system and the support being received was no longer reliable.
As a result, we liaised with PCS and they looked at how they could improve our efficiency and ensure a more functional and easy to manage solution.

l

Solution

Our current system was reviewed and PCS performed an analysis. They then suggested a solution utilising HP, Netapp, Mellanox, Microsoft, VMware & Veeam architecture.
PCS performed an assessment and recommended a strategy and roadmap on what can be re-used and what needed replacing to ensure a fit for purpose and scalable solution to suit us.
Operational equipment, software, and appropriate commercial models were identified to ensure that our technology strategy could be maintained and improved in the event of any future growth.
PCS support us longer term which allows us to maintain consistency of service.
PCS completed a smooth and non-disruptive implementation of Veeam backup solution, ensuring that we had fit for purpose backups and that Veeam was setup in accordance with best practice to ensure we get the most from the software.

Result

This service allows for monitoring and regular improvements to our system.
PCS perform daily backup checks along with advanced reporting which gives complete insight into the infrastructure so we are now able to work so much more effectively and efficiently.
This information is used to predict changes which may need to be made to the environment to minimise service interruptions. This is a much more proactive approach & ensures business continuity so our productivity has increased too.
The service is designed to fall in line with industry regulations and as PCS is an ISO27001:2013 certified organisation they follow industry best practice on Information Security.
We can’t thank PCS enough and would highly recommend them.
