ICT Health Check ticks all the boxes for Angas Securities

Angas identified that their existing ICT environment was no longer meeting their business requirements. Employees were encountering daily difficulties accessing the network and this was resulting in substantial down time. Iocane performed an ICT Health Check to review the existing environment and identify the issues. Iocane implemented remedial actions to rectify the immediate problems and stabilise the ICT environment before deploying an infrastructure refresh solution. The infrastructure refresh secured the network allowing Iocane to then implement an end-to-end Managed Service to handle the day-to-day ICT support requirements. The infrastructure refresh solution has resulted in a secure, stable network that has lead to a substantial reduction in lost time as well as improved productivity for the organisation’s staff who now have access to a faster, more reliable and consistent ICT environment.

With IBM XIV, Internode’s Capacity Worries Are Averted

Having quadrupled in size in a few short years, Internode’s previous storage system was at capacity, unable to accommodate new projects as well as being complex and time consuming to maintain. Iocane replaced Internode's traditional SAN systems with an IBM XIV storage system that delivered a four-fold increase in storage capacity, improved system performance and manageability. All of Internode's systems remained operational throughout of the upgrade deployment, with no interruption to service. Internode saves thousands of dollars each year in operating costs and their power consumption has reduced by a massive 68%.

Lifeplan Funds Management automates compliance with Tivoli Storage Manager

To align with revised APRA business continuity management standards, Lifeplan identified that it would need to develop a completely new business recovery site strategy. Lifeplan needed to ensure compliance with these standards but wanted to derive other business benefits from this significant financial investment. Iocane proposed a solution built around Tivoli® Storage Manager, which would handle the transfer and automatic backup of Lifeplan’s IT infrastructure to a disaster recovery site. The additional introduction of IBM BladeCenter® and virtualisation also helped to provide increased levels of agility and reduce the total cost of ownership. Lifeplan now enjoys automated compliance that meets current industry legislative requirements and has improved its risk management profile. In the process Lifeplan has also consolidated its IT infrastructure, which helped to reduce its energy usage and deliver IT resources which can be deployed quickly in response to business needs.
