Vianet Telecom

Due to its accelerated growth, Vianet Telecom started having issues with its internal infrastructure, and so it started looking for a data center to migrate its environment. The key requirement is that it should focus on the company’s core business: telecom solutions.

DPaschoal

With over 70 years of experience in the field of automotive services, including tires, brakes, shock absorbers, lubricants, batteries, suspension and others, DPaschoal is a market leader with a continued focus on serving its customers.

Business challenge

After an internal restructuring, DPaschoal saw the opportunity to refurbish its IT environment, which until then was operated in-house. The company was looking for a partner that could meet all of its demands for a world-class environment.

Solution

With Colocation solutions at two different Ascenty data centers, combined with the Connectivity provided by our own optical fiber, we keep DPaschoal’s IT infrastructure up and running.

We have the production environment and the disaster environment (DR) connected through a dedicated L2L link, which also connects the company’s headquarters. There is also a Cloud Connect connection, which physically and directly interconnects the DPaschoal Azure cloud environment.

In addition, Cross Connection allows DPaschoal to connect directly with other Ascenty customers, contributing to the development of the business.

Result

With all this change in its IT environment, DPaschoal now has a much more secure and scalable environment, without having to worry about the maintenance that a data center requires. In addition, the company has increased the possibilities of connecting with other important players in Ascenty’s data centers.

Testimonial

“We place great trust in the company, which, in addition to the data center solution, also offers a fiber optic network to connect our customers. Everything related to facility access control (physical security), electricity and air conditioning is managed by Ascenty, which brings great peace of mind. We are very satisfied because we haven’t had any issues since we started our partnership.”

Marabraz is a retail chain specialized in furniture and decoration, featuring the top brands in the market. The company has stores spread across Brazil, and also operates an e-commerce channel.

Business challenge

Marabraz needed to migrate its on-premise environment to the cloud, and the biggest challenge was to have a direct, secure and fast connection with that environment.

Solution

With Ascenty’s cloud connect solution, we connected the client’s office to their entire Oracle cloud environment. Through a lan-to-lan link, Marabraz has direct and dedicated access to its cloud environment.

Result

Marabraz has a flexible and scalable environment in the Oracle cloud. In addition, the company relies on maximum security and the lowest latency in the market to connect this environment. According to Gartner, 75% of enterprises will have adopted hybrid or multi-cloud solutions by 2021.
