The Solution

Suez The Solution

Focus Group rolled out Cisco Nexus 9000 and 7000 switches over two data centre locations, ensuring business continuity at all times. The interconnected data centres now use Cisco’s Overlay Transport Virtualization (OTV) technology.

The Results

Suez will be able to add incremental capabilities in the future, adding capacity or moving resources to meet changing needs, incorporating new technology platforms, cloud services and converged infrastructures. The company is now able to handle whatever data capacity flows and demands the business throws at the IT teams.

"Working with Focus Group was a highly consultative, iterative process which enabled us to test concepts with technical experts and refine the approach we took. They understood our vision. The technical know-how of Focus is seriously impressive – that’s why we selected them as our strategic partner for the design and specification of the new data centre environment"
