They’re the kind of distributors that we want, that are strong when it comes to products and are agile and don’t mess around. The likes of the HPE team within NEXTGEN, they know their stuff. There has been times we’ve actually utilised NEXTGEN knowledge on calls, and they’ve gone in and helped us almost like a pre-sales Solista employee. That kind of service is invaluable.James Thompson Business Development Manager, Solista
Solista is a Sydney-based IT reseller with a focus on bringing new and emerging technologies to the Australian market. Providing professional services and technical advice, Solista’s aim is to free business IT teams from binding service contracts, complicated environments, restrictive infrastructure and expensive capital outlays. Their technology focus is storage, backup and disaster recovery, copy data management, cyber security and cloud with key customers in the financial services, health, and real estate sectors to name a few.
Solista’s customer was going through a phase of healthy growth that was forecasted to continue progressively in the next 3-5 years. It was identified that capacity and performance issues were being compromised by their current setup and they required a more robust, flexible and cost effective solution to meet their storage needs. Solista’s assistance was required to find the right solution quickly, so the client could continue to operate at an optimum level day-to-day.
“Looking at the next 3-5 years as they grew, the current setup was going to continue to create problems for operations and we wanted to look at the likes of HPE to help build a solution,” says James Thompson, Business Development Manager at Solista.
As one of Australia’s most innovative and experienced HPE partners, Solista applied its unique methodology to cut through the complexity of identifying the best solution for its customer both for the business now and for the next five years. By analysing their customer’s existing storage usage and upcoming needs, Solista was able to help the client understand how to rebalance their workloads to be more effective. By optimising the solution workload, performance and management, Solista provided speed and value in identifying the best hybrid solution for their customer.
Solista recommended HPE’s Nimble product as the best fit for their customer’s expanding workloads and cost optimisation targets. Nimble is an all flash array of products offering increased capacity and a cloud feel while lowering costs. Solista implemented Nimble for storage and Cisco UCS for compute.
“It’s essentially what they used to call a “smart stack” that would essentially lower the total cost of ownership or TCO over 3-5 years. So a CAPEX cost of X amount over 5 years actually looked to be half the price than the cloud would be,” Thompson says.
“We look to develop hybrid solutions with Nimble to give that cloud feel and then give the client the ability to manage it themselves as well,” he added.
The result following implementation in July 2017 was that Solista met the business goals. There was a reduction in cost for the customer, increased performance, plus a better impression and duplication rate. The correct solution has made a major impact on their business, which is highly reliant on fast and reliable data storage and retrieval.
“The team noticed a change as soon as an internet connection was issued within the data centre. One thing that Nimble also has is Infosight, which gives them full real time visibility of their environment. You can log on to one single dashboard and see your storage arrangement running, if it’s going to go over capacity,” Thompson says.
The customer was extremely satisfied with the outcome of the project, which relieved pressure on their technology budget and gave them the confidence that they could continue to grow without cost or capacity issues.
Combining HPE’s products with the NEXTGEN team’s technical ability instilled confidence in Solista that they could deliver the right solution on time and on budget, which would in turn provide better outcomes for Solista.
“We introduced the HPE product Nimble, because of the case of Nimble being an all flash array to give them increased capacity and a cloud feel which is what they were used to. HPE also have amazing support 24/7, so if they see something going on in your environment that you’re not aware of, they will call you and assist you with that issue,” Thompson said.
Solista’s relationship with NEXTGEN has always been strong, due to the team’s agility, quick response times and competitive pricing. It helps them service their clients better and achieve their mission of always delivering the latest technologies to their customers so they can add value to their business.
“They’re agile, quick, the assistance of the full solution is just second to none. Having those easy discussions with them is a lot better than some other distributors where it takes 2-3 weeks to get back to us on something rather than 2-3 minutes,” Thompson said.
NEXTGEN is the preferred distributor for Solista because they’re a company that is always there to help, whether it be competitive pricing to help match up with a client’s budget, responding within agreed timeframes and removing the pain of quoting directly with large IT companies.
“They’re the kind of distributors that we want, that are strong when it comes to products and are agile and don’t mess around. The likes of the HPE team within NEXTGEN, they know their stuff. They just get it and they are there to be that pre-sale and technical advice. There has been times we’ve actually utilised NEXTGEN knowledge on calls, and they’ve gone in and helped us almost like a pre-sales Solista employee. That kind of service is invaluable.”
