Iomart

Pioneering platform delivers immediate data centre success for Iomart

Iomart’s complex network was struggling with performance and scalability issues. So, we simplified its network infrastructure with a common, shared platform for all IT services and consolidated its connectivity to reduce the amount of cabling and patching. With a 100 Gigabit capability, Iomart also has greater scalability in the years ahead.
