Case Study Overview
Stockport NHS Foundation Trust depends heavily on its IT estate to provide vital healthcare services across the north of England every year. However, the combination of ageing infrastructure and an overstretched IT team - comprising 25 people to cover 6,000 employees - was causing a number of operational challenges.
CDW, in partnership with Cohesity and Cisco, implemented a highly innovative backup and recovery solution which has transformed the Trust's operations resulting in a more agile and responsive data protection performance as well as reduced annual data centre costs of up to £100,000 per year.
"We had worked with CDW previously and it had always provided an excellent level of service. What we had always liked was the fact there was a consistency of contact, you work with the same team all the way through a project."
