SPriNT application from Cardiff to Clara.Net’s Global Switch in the Docklands area of London.
Designed for support and case workers, SPriNT monitors and records all types of information associated with supporting people. Originally developed by Cadarn in association with Cymorth Cymru, SPriNT is now used as a lower cost of ownership alternative to more expensive commercial applications by 1500 users throughout the United Kingdom, 40 per cent of which are social housing organisations.
The successful migration of 40 Microsoft SQL Server databases to the new location is expected to provide better bandwidth and faster data backup for SPriNT’s customers. The Clara.Net facility will also provide improved scalability as the SPriNT user community grows.
Richard Troote, head of information services, Cadarn Housing Group, said, “The move was planned by Cadarn IS operations and project managers, assisted by CAEUK, and was completed ahead of schedule and with minimal disruption to users. Due to the design of SPriNT, the migration was seamless and the majority of users did not have to reinstall software on their PCs and were able to begin working on the new upgraded server with minimal disruption.”
SPriNT is upgraded via Microsoft’s ‘one-click’ deployment, meaning that users receive seamless upgrades each time a new version is released, removing the need to involve local IT teams and ensuring zero downtime during upgrades.
