IT Infastructure For Harron Homes

Information

Founded in 1992, Harron Homes has been delivering high quality new homes across Yorkshire, the North West, Northern Wales and the Midlands.  Their dedication to building outstanding homes is the foundation to their success and their excellent reputation.  The quality of their homes is of paramount importance and they don’t compromise on their build or specification.  Every home is finished to their exacting standards that they demand and that their customers require.

Solution

Harron Homes needed to upgrade their current IT infrastructure from Windows Server 2003; however, they required use of several legacy applications which were incompatible with more recent operating systems, but running on outdated and ageing hardware.  Intrasource’s strategy and hosted service team worked with Harron Homes to specify a new virtual server solution, which incorporated both new servers based on the latest Windows Server architecture and the virtualization of the existing legacy servers.

Intrasource also implemented a new backup solution allowing for the immediate backup and restore of the virtual machines direct from network attached storage.

Why we chose Intrasource

“Intrasource have supported Harron Homes since 2008, we outsourced our IT services as it was more cost-effective than continuing to operate an internal team.  As our existing support provider, we had complete confidence in Intrasource to undertake our proposed server refresh in a professional and efficient manner, with minimal impact to our business.”

Benefits

Richard says the main benefits of the new system are:-

  • Faster restoration of data from backups and improved disaster recovery;
  • Extending the life of legacy software;
  • Faster and more cost-effective server provisioning;
  • Shared storage meaning that it is easier to expand drives.
