Hybrid Cloud Solution

About Understanding Recruitment

Understanding Recruitment is a distinguished IT and Technology recruitment firm based in St Albans, known for its rapid growth and expertise in the software industry. They specialise in connecting top talent with leading companies across the UK, Europe, and the US, consistently delivering outstanding recruitment solutions.

The Challenge

The firm was struggling with an existing cloud desktop solution that failed to meet their performance and functional requirements. They needed a new solution that would provide a fast, fully supported user experience while retaining a scalable, low-risk cloud approach.

What We Did

Total Group designed, installed and managed a new Hybrid cloud system for Understanding Recruitment. This system integrated Microsoft Office 365 with ongoing PRO support, significantly enhancing the firm’s IT capabilities. We migrated date from the previously hosted desktop solutions to a local server with cloud replication. This increased the bandwidth to content from 6MB to 1000MB whilst retaining the offsite cloud redundancy.

Technologies Deployed: Office 365 Cloud Exchange, Desktops, File Server, Cloud Backup. 

The Results

They have suffered zero downtime in 2 years and have doubled in size during this time. By replacing their underperforming cloud system with a hybrid cloud solution and integrating Microsoft Office 365 for a faster, more reliable user experience, we have transformed how they work. This upgrade significantly boosted their internet speed and ensured data safety with cloud backups, supporting the company's swift growth and enhancing their daily operations. The email environment is now unlimited in both capacity and scalability with a 99.999% uptime guarantees.

What Understanding Recruitment Said

“Critically we were able to work well throughout the migration to the new cloud solution. We now have a faster solution that we are confident will support the business during our rapid growth.”
