    “Reliability and technical support

    Triangle needed a cloud hosting partner that would play its part in upholding their ethos of providing a quality service. Their solutions play such a vital role in the businesses they work with — critical operational processes no less — that platform reliability and the availability of one-to-one technical support were “must haves” in their selection criteria.
    Phil Webster, Director at Triangle summed up:

    “We were looking for a company that had the latest technology and robust infrastructure, who were also local and approachable.”
    A flexible infrastructure

    But that wasn’t all that Triangle needed. They recognise that every business they serve is unique, which is just one of the reasons why the software they build for their customers is bespoke to each project they undertake. Understandably, it followed that there was a need for this to be reflected in their hosting infrastructure.
    Phil continued:

    “We needed flexible options, and to have the ability to tailor our infrastructure to our specific requirements.”
    Quick summary:
    • Triangle’s VMware cloud data centre has given them the flexibility to grow their IT resources quickly in response to customer demand.
    • The inherent fault-tolerance of cloud technology is delivering the reliable hosting platform that Triangle demand for for their customers.
    • From past experience, the team at Triangle know they have access to tried and tested technical support when they need it.
