The international chemical company is one of the world’s largest suppliers of sulphuric acid, liquid sulphur dioxide (SO2), and sodium hydrosulphite (SHS), and a leading North American processor of spent acid. They are also a leading regional supplier of sulphur, sodium chlorate, and water treatment chemicals. In North America, the company produces zinc oxide at three locations and is one of only two producers of phosphorus pentasulphide.
As a growing international chemical company, their corporate headquarters did not have enough space for their business critical and expanding IT infrastructure. The company faced other challenges, including unstable power and internet connections, and inadequate air conditioning. To compound these challenges, the company could not justify the capital costs to update or build a new data centre. The company’s only cost effective option was to outsource their IT infrastructure to a managed Tier III data centre with the preferred cooling, power, and redundancy. Also, with IT becoming a critical part of their business, it was imperative to deploy secure, fast, and reliable offsite backup and disaster recovery. With unique strengths in managed data centre services and disaster recovery, NetPulse was the company’s first choice for IT outsourcing.
