Brisbane reseller scores schools with Simplivity
CATEGORY: IT SOLUTION
Brisbane-based Serenity IT Solutions has deployed Simplivity systems to three schools within the state with another six more schools being targeted for similar work this year.
Serenity IT Solutions director Mona Taimana told CRN: “We recently deployed Simplivity systems to St Andrews Anglican College [in] Peregian Springs, Somerset College, Mudgeeraba and Kimberley College, Carbrook last year. This year we are planning on doubling the number to another six schools.”
Taimana did not reveal the names of the new schools, but added that each Simplivity deployment was worth around $100,000.
“Once all the relevant information is gathered in the form of a pre-flight questionnaire and hardware is installed in racks as per customer requirement depending on customer site, the actual deployment will take about two to three hours,” he added.
He said it took three people to deploy the system in each school, comprising of a specialist from Simplivity, a representative from Serenity IT Solutions and a person from the customer.
Taimana said Simplivity technology replaced the storage, compute, backup and WAN acceleration [for disaster recovery] solutions in the schools, providing highly available clustered storage as well as compute in the form of hypervisor nodes.
Based in Massachusetts, Simplivity is a fast-growing startup in the area of hyper-convergence infrastructure, competing with the likes of Nutanix.
Serenity IT Solutions was formed in 2009 by Taimana and his business partner Michael del Manso. The company’s clientele is 90 percent schools.
