“We needed to upgrade our server in order to cater for our updated accounting and taxation software, as the underlying database management system was being updated from Pervasive Btrieve to Microsoft SQL. Our software provider had announced they were shortly to cease supporting Pervasive, so time was of the essence!
“We are delighted with the work carried out by Samarind in a tight turnaround time. Some of our workstations have been here since we started in 2003, so it took several days on site to upgrade the server and transfer all the data. However, we were always kept in the loop and we were able to work around it. We have always found Samarind staff punctual, friendly and helpful.”
Our new HP blade server is cutting edge technology and I’m very pleased to have it here. I have every confidence it puts in place the robustness and growth capability needed for the future.
“I’ve found Samarind very professional and helpful. The engineers are sensitive to a layman’s point of view – they don’t talk in jargon but explain everything clearly. It’s a much closer working relationship than one gets with a big corporation. I would thoroughly recommend Samarind to anyone considering employing outside assistance for their IT services!Jonathan Tranter
Virtualisation seems to be a cutting edge solution. Samarind spent a lot of time on it, testing and trialling, and waiting for the right software to come along – they were determined to get it right for us.
“No business can afford to be without its computer system, especially one that enjoys such high volume sales as we do. VM Ware allows us to return the company’s critical data in under an hour. We feel a lot more secure now!Tim Norman
