"Edrington makes some of the world’s best-loved Scotch whiskies. We have worked for many years with Cosnadh who have supplied Edrington with IBM Servers and Storage, during this time they have repeatedly displayed very high levels of competence, while being professional and very easy to deal with.
Faced with our recent challenge to relocate our Head Office from Perth to Glasgow, Scotland, Cosnadh’s depth of understanding of our IT infrastructure allowed them to design and build a whole new solution based on the latest cutting edge Hyperconverge Technology from SimpliVity. We expect this to help with a seamless migration and significantly reduce ongoing costs and complexities. We highly recommend Cosnadh"

GLOBAL SHIPPING & MANAGEMENT
Cosnadh worked with one of the largest global shipping and management companies. The organisation has a complex and geographically disparate IT infrastructure, so when it came to addressing the challenge of refreshing and simplifying the datacentre environment, it turned to Cosnadh to help design and build our new production and recovery infrastructure from the ground up.
"We were keen on consolidating our existing environment and realising the benefits from a hyperconverged solution, therefore we opted to build this new solution around HPE Simplivity. Already, we have realised a great reduction on our RTO & RPO times, a substantial reduction in energy and hosting costs and it has greatly simplified the management and monitoring of our environment.
Cosnadh have been instrumental in providing expertise and guidance around the architecture of our new environment. I would not hesitate to recommend them."
