Spinal Life Australia and WARDY IT Solutions exceed business continuity expectations with transition to cloud

WARDY IT Solutions was contracted by Spinal Life Australia to manage the migration from SQL Server 2008 on-premise to SQL Server 2014 in the cloud, as part of the wider project of moving to an infrastructure-as-a-service environment.

If Spinal Life did not take action to refresh its infrastructure, the IT team would have been fighting issues with the environment on a daily basis. Their ability to focus on their clients would have been greatly reduced. WARDY IT Solutions participated in an overhaul of Spinal Life Australia’s technology infrastructure to fix existing problems and future-proof the organisation.

Peter Ward, Founder and Managing Director at WARDY IT Solutions, said “WARDY IT Solutions installed and configured the new servers in two separate data centres. This high-availability, always-on solution was seen as the best option for Spinal Life Australia in its pursuit of a stable, flexible, reliable and secure system for data storage, analysis, management and reporting.”

Matthew Linscott, Spinal Life CIO, said “The WARDY IT Solutions consultants knew exactly what they were there to do. They understood our goals and they provided exceptionally good advice and delivered exactly what we needed.”

With an eye towards the future, Spinal Life Australia anticipates an expansion of its use of WARDY IT Solutions’ services, likely in the areas of reporting, Business Intelligence and systems integration.
