Challenge

Server farm

Giving the best service to their customers is one of the most important aims for Aruba. They depend on the high level of support and flexibility from their hardware suppliers.

It is key for Aruba to have a reliable memory manufacturer who they count on as an expert in their own field. A partner that has extensive product knowledge, 24-7 technical support services, high quality products and fundamental for Aruba is the quick response service levels.

Reliability and compatibility aspects are fundamental for their DC performance, but most critical aspect is the scalability this allows them to respond to the needs and requirements of their clients on demand.

Technology Solution

One of the main roles of the Technical Operations Team managed by Diego Parasecoli is supporting clients with remote services.

They have technical experts on site to support their servers if HDD, SSD or RAM may require replacing and upgrading. They also have experts on hand to support calls that may require more detailed technical know-how.

Kingston is one of these partners, they provide support on technological structures enabling the best use to be made of their hardware by maximising all its capabilities.

" We are able to use Kingston as part of our proposition because they match our customer’s requirements for quality and reliability."
