adaQuest, an Award-winning Global Company, Utilize Wowrack Private Cloud

Being a managed services company for software implementation, adaQuest saw the need to take their IT-managed hosting off-site and “practice what they preach by leaving it to the experts” to service the needs of their growing company. This is where they engage Wowrack to be their partner.

Being a managed services company for software implementation, adaQuest saw the need to take their IT-managed hosting off-site and, "practice what they preach, by leaving it to the experts" to service the needs of their growing company.

The Solutions

After evaluating the pros and cons of taking their infrastructure to an off-site data center location, adaQuest decided to utilize the Wowrack Private Cloud to run their entire corporate infrastructure.

They were able to virtualize a large part of their physical infrastructure -comprised of nine servers; and now have more than two dozen servers located at the Wowrack data center in Seattle, Washington, running Microsoft's Hyper-V Virtualization platform. adaQuest's application stack consists of Microsoft technologies with Windows 2012 Active Directory Servers, Microsoft Exchange 2010, Microsoft System Center 2012, Microsoft SQL Server 2008R2, Microsoft Project Server, Microsoft Lync Server 2010 with Enterprise Voice, Microsoft TMG Server, Quickbooks server, and several other application servers.

Wowrack was able to work closely with adaQuest to perform an Active Directory migration from 2003 to 2008R2, perform a migration from a hosted cloud Exchange solution to a private on-premises Exchange server, deploy a brand new Unified Communication Phone system running Lync with Enterprise Voice and set up disaster recovery infrastructure with Microsoft Hyper-V replica and System Center 2012.

Before moving to Wowrack, these servers were on-site at adaQuest's offices. But with a rapidly growing company, Bruno Lecoq, CTO, realized that he did not want his team to run an in-house data center but rather be able to improve their own internal IT needs. Taking the servers off-site would allow him to scale in multiple office locations while having an extension of their IT team by utilizing Wowrack's services.

The Results

  • Increased scalability for adaQuest's rapidly growing team located in multiple office locations.
  • Cost savings of privately managed hosting services versus operating an in-house data center.
  • An "extension" of their oT team, available to service their needs 24/7/365.
  • Ability to develop relationships with a locally managed hosting services company with like-minded business values.

The ease of adding or removing employees has been taken away. I now have an extended IT department that is available 24/7/365 and has gone from nine on-site servers to one Wowrack Private Cloud. From a monetary perspective, we would have had way more spending had we kept the data center on-site. And we could not operate 24/7 to support our global locations.
