Emergency Management Victoria

RUN Infrastructure as a Service

The Victorian State Control Centre was facing increased demand for their services and so needed their own dedicated server as well as a second site for high availability.

ISW already hosted the Victorian State Control Centre's Domino-based applications on a shared environment at our Cambridge data centre. ISW leveraged SoftLayer to deliver this solution using the Singapore data centre, and is migrating this customer to the Melbourne SoftLayer centre when open.

Now, EMV enjoys increased capacity and flexibility to scale without delay in the event of an emergency. Geographically distributed, EMV has peace of mind knowing their IT needs are reliable with the sheer speed of accessing more infrastructure on demand.


Emergency Management Victoria relies on High Availability Cloud42 services from ISW to host a number of vital applications used by Victorian emergency services agencies before, during and after emergencies such as bush fire or flood. The skills and experience of ISW combined with the high reliability of the enterprise-grade IBM SoftLayer Cloud infrastructure delivers a solution that Emergency Management Victoria has full confidence in.

Hightail

RUN infrastructure as a service

Hightail (formerly YouSendit') had the need to demonstrate the custom integration between IBM Connections and Hightail to their clients.

ISW implemented a Softlayer cloud solution to host IBM Connections 5, using the Dallas TX data centre. ISW Manages the environment for Hightail, including monitoring and performing maintenance.

Now, Hightail enjoys 'always on' accessibility, and with the sheer speed of deployment, they have eliminated any wait time for infrastructure. Cloud42 RUN is also compatible with other IBM technologies used by Hightail, such as IBM Connections, enabling Hightail executives to make seamless demonstrations wherever they are in the world.


The ability for us at Hightail to demonstrate our custom integration with IBM Connections has enabled our team to showcase our platform to its full potential. Hats off to the IBM SoftLayer advantage and Cloud42's impeccable service delivery.
