SUCCESS STORY: NetShape Technologies Partners with ABS for Data Center Migration and SAN Consolidation

When NetShape Technologies (http://www.netshapetech.com/), a global manufacturer and metal components supplier with sites located in North America, Asia and Europe, needed to move their data center, they came to ABS for help. The complex project involved relocating their hardware from Louisville to Chicago as well as implementing and configuring a new Storage Area Network (SAN)—and a smooth transition was crucial to NetShape’s operations.

“These are the kinds of high-level coordination and integration projects that many ABS clients aren’t aware we provide,” said Jeff Hall, ABS’s Sales Director. “But as evidenced here, not only do we offer these services, we excel at them.”

Roy Hayes, Systems Administrator for NetShape, would agree. “The help that ABS provided has been incredible,” he said. “We had planned to be down for three days and there was doubt if it could actually be done on a three-day holiday weekend. But the ABS team was able to make it happen in one day. We really appreciate the time they put into this project to make it a success.”

Patty Burkland, CFO at NetShape, added, “Many hours went into planning this move to ensure it would go smoothly and the results speak for themselves. The ABS team provided invaluable assistance and we truly appreciate the partnership.”

The NetShape project is a prime example of ABS’s ability to deliver on time and on budget, no matter the expectations. It’s also proof positive of our commitment to accomplishing each project’s technical goals while also helping our clients achieve their larger business goals by ensuring they receive the full benefit of our wide-ranging expertise and knowledge.

Whatever the project, whenever the deadline—even on holidays—ABS has IT covered.
