Virtual Desktop Infrastructure
(Jan 2014)

Utilizing multiple leading-edge technologies, this California government department deployed a scalable VDI solution with the flexibility to accommodate a large number of variably configured desktops and mobile devices. The VDI solution design leveraged multiple technologies that provide highly available remote access from any client device and in compliance with the strictest security guidelines.

Backup and Recovery / Disaster Recovery with EMC Avamar
(Oct 2013)

In addition to establishing a Disaster Recovery Site, this California government department needed a centralized storage/backup solution that addressed retention and security policies and met Data Center Services requirements for “ready” mode to move to the Tier III data center.

Business objectives were met 100% with effective data consolidation, deduplication, replication, encryption, and speed of backups, providing simplified management, additional security, and cost savings.

Virtual Messaging Infrastructure with Email Migration
(Jun 2013)

The Department of Justice faced multiple limitations and risks for several business applications critical to reliable 24/7 operations communications for nearly 6,000 email users.
