Glasgow-based Partick Housing Association is moving its IT infrastructure to a private cloud-based service from Castle Computer Services. The new service is expected to be operational by August 2012, with the aim for achieving greater efficiency and performance alongside better business continuity.
Arlene Casey, ICT manager, Partick Housing Association, said, “The move to a private cloud service gives us the flexibility and benefits that would normally only be achievable in a large enterprise environment. We will now have a high-performance, secure infrastructure that is scalable and resilient. Castle is now responsible for managing all our IT systems, which reduces IT management time and allows us to focus on key priorities without distraction.
“We have the peace of mind that all of our data is held in a world-class, Tier-III+ data centre in central Scotland and replicated to a secondary data centre for business continuity. This would allow us to operate from another location in the case of a disaster of any kind.”
