SMB Insights HPE: Backups are critical to limiting malware outbreaks

Reseller: IT1

IT1 will turn 25 next year and consists of four pillars: infrastructure, web development, education and short-term rental of IT material.

End user: Municipality of Merelbeke

A municipality that ensures backups are given a high priority and that opts for unburdening.


HPE Simplivity

The municipality of Merelbeke started using IT1 seven years ago for what was then a rare “always-on” solution. At the time, it installed a metro-cluster with HP StoreVirtual, and this provided the municipality with the guarantee that all the data was stored in synchronisation at two separate locations. Joeri D’hont, Key Account Manager at IT1, explains: “At the time, this solution only existed at HP. The requirement at the time was that if one location were to go down, work could immediately continue using the other. All the hardware was redundant and state of the art.” A 5-year budget was assigned for the solution because the chance of failure after that time increases, and with it, the support contract costs. The entire solution was due for replacement, and so the municipality of Merelbeke approached IT1 again.

SMB Insights Lenovo: Lenovo and Scale boost mini data centers for the SMB

Vendor: Lenovo

From the smartphone in your pocket and light bulbs in your smart home to the servers in your data center.

Partner: Scale Computing

Developer of a virtualisation platform that works in close cooperation with Lenovo


Micro Data Center-in-a-Box

IT is so complex that employees lose lots of time managing the infrastructure. In addition to lost time, a lot of knowledge is required to keep everything on track, and some SMBs cannot afford this. Hyperconverged systems are a convenient solution. These systems were created to reduce complexity in the data center and to increase scalability. To realise that, storage, computing and server virtualisation administration and management are combined into one single system.
