“Dox offers superior technical expertise and reliable, timely support. Their engineering staff consistently meets or exceeds my expectations and exhibits the highest integrity.”

- David Trump, Germanow-Simon Corp.

The Solution
We recommended and installed a VMware vCenter Controller, which is designed to help users reduce capital expenses through server consolidation and to improve operating expenses through automation, while minimizing lost revenue by reducing both planned and unplanned downtime.

Results
As a result of the vCenter Controller installation, all of the company’s servers now are virtualized. David Trump, Germanow-Simon’s IT Manager / Network Administrator, has a history of working with Dox engineers, and trusted them to find the best way to control the “brain” of its data center. “Dox has earned my trust over many years through many projects and issues -- they have always been a really good partner with us.”
