Host-IT answers SOS from Managed IT Services Provider

ONEMS is a Managed IT Services company with offices in the UK, Europe, USA, Singapore and Australia. Established in 2019, it now employs over 60 staff across these locations providing a wide range of managed services including IT, Cyber, Cloud and Unified Communications.

The Challenge

In Mid-July ONEMS was presented with a major problem. One of its long-standing clients was informed at short notice that their IT infrastructure - hosted at another premise - had to be moved in just a matter of days!

The Solution

On the Wednesday afternoon, ONEMS put a call into Host-IT requesting information on colocation services available at its newly opened data centre in Birmingham. Andrew Willis, Managing Director of Host-IT responded immediately so that contracts could be exchanged just 36 hours later.

The following Monday ONEMS delivered their client's IT equipment to the Host-IT data centre in Birmingham where it was installed and connected. Host-IT's secure ISO 27001, Tier 3 facility is strategically located in central Birmingham, close to the major fibre networks traversing the UK and various regional fibre providers. There is currently 6MW of IT power available to site with the potential to increase this to 12MW.

Phil Thomas, Director of Strategic Alliances for ONEMS commented: "We were delighted by the response of the team at Host-IT. Our client was in a very tricky situation and we needed to find them a solution at very short notice. Andrew understood the urgency of the problem and responded very quickly. The installation at the Host-IT data centre went very smoothly and everything is working well. The Host-IT tier 3 datacentre in Birmingham is a fantastic location and we plan on using it for other clients moving forward."

Andrew Willis added: "We are highly experienced in all aspects of data centre moves and migration. The new Birmingham data centre is the ideal location for ONEMS's clients and we were happy to help them. Using our readily available connectivity enabled them to gain remote access within a matter of hours."

Host-IT has been developing and hosting web sites and operating its own data centres since 1995. The company supports many types of clients both technical and non-technical including SMEs, large multi-nationals, local authorities, police forces not for profit organisations, IT service providers, and web development companies.
