NSMS Case Studies
Case Study: Cost-effective Windows server management in the Department of Pharmacology
NSMS were asked by the Department of Pharmacology to assist in the upgrade and subsequent management of their Windows domain. In conjunction with the local IT staff, NSMS planned and implemented a strategy to upgrade the domain to a Windows 2000 Active Directory forest, migrating the Exchange setup to the (then) latest version and replacing the hardware of the most significant machines.
The number of servers was consolidated from four to two servers, with a minimum of disruption to the departmental staff. With the upgrade completed, the two servers were placed under monitoring contracts with NSMS, freeing up the time of the local IT staff and enabling them to deal with local support issues more effectively.
