Proact supplies virtualised infrastructure, cloud backup to Grafia

Proact has implemented a new, virtualised infrastructure and a new storage environment for Grafia. The contract also includes backup to Proact’s secure cloud and consecutive support. The implementation project commenced and was completed in the summer of 2012.

Grafia is one of Sweden’s most sought-after companies in the field of model and product photography, supplying photos to companies such as clothing giants Kappahl, Brothers, Lindex and MQ. To enhance the performance and flexibility of the business, Proact has implemented a new, virtualised infrastructure and a new storage environment.

“Of course, our success is based on the fact that we supply high-quality images, but the fact that we supply technical solutions that allow our end-clients to receive and manage our images with ease is also a factor. These technical solutions, which make us highly competitive, are entirely dependent on a flexible, high-performance IT infrastructure and storage environment,” says Martin Gårdmark, CIO of Grafia.

To meet Grafia’s demands for outstanding flexibility and performance, Proact presented a solution comprising a new, virtualised infrastructure and a storage and backup environment. The Proact solution also includes the backup of vital applications to Proact’s own cloud, thereby giving Grafia greater access and reliability if anything were to affect the local infrastructure.

“Grafia has a clear vision regarding what its IT environment has to supply to the business and what it should facilitate. The solution which we have devised and implemented gives Grafia outstanding performance, reliability and, above all, the flexibility the company needs for its business,” says Martin Ödman, Regional Manager at Proact.
