Outsourcing secures stable operations
The contract started small, but was expanded in pace with Swix Sport AS needing more and more servers and more advanced equipment. Now, nearly all computer equipment and most solutions are operated by EVRY.
"We have grown, and the world of computers has become more complex. 10 years ago we only had three servers. Now, we have more than 20! On the way, we have had to outsource in order to maintain stable and secure operations, managed by people with expertise in the field," Petter Vike sums up.
New and better solution
To begin with, Swix Sport AS had its servers in-house. The company chose, however, to move them to EVRY's cavern in Gjøvik in 2011.
"We came to a point where the equipment began to be old. It was expensive to run, and had to be updated regularly. Instead of keeping the old solution, we chose to rent computing power from EVRY. By renting new technology that was cheaper to run, we get a better solution at around the same cost, states Petter Vike.
At the same time he points out the new solution provides greater data security and improved uptimes.
"With EVRY at our backs, I can concentrate on giving my colleagues the best possible computer day on a daily basis. That is how to create satisfied users," Petter Vike smiles.
