As a Microsoft tenant, Fantoo was paying the maximum costs for its cloud services and those costs were spiraling. It quickly became apparent that these associated costs were not sustainable for the start-up business and needed to be minimised. After deliberation, the business began the process of looking to move from being a direct Microsoft Tenant to working with a CSP.
After researching various cloud providers, Fantoo finally chose Netmetix as it was the best fit for what the business needed and was also recommended to them through another client. Although the partnership is still in its early stages, Fantoo has so far recorded a cost reduction of 50 percent for its cloud services from changing license types. By only migrating the information the business required, rather than all the information the business had, Netmetix has been able to significantly reduce the cloud costs for the business.
,Netmetix MD Paul Blore said: “We’re really excited to be working with Fantoo. It’s a great company and the partnership has been a success so far with the business reporting a huge cost saving within a short timeframe. We’re thrilled that we’ve been able to provide the infrastructure and services to meet their needs now, and in the future.”
Fantoo Sales Director Mark Buckley added: “Netmetix were very approachable and no issue was a problem, they were very professional in what they did and very “human” with a personal touch. What I found with our Netmetix engineer, Oana, is that she really listened to our needs and offered valuable advice and alternative approaches to the way we were thinking. She went out of her way to accommodate our needs and our timelines to deliver the project on time and to plan.
“It’s difficult to see how any on-premise server solutions today, or services, can offer any value above what the cloud can offer, today and going forward. Cloud services are more scalable, quicker to deliver, offer more business value than any on-premise server offered today. Our business could not operate in any other way now. We are cloud and we’re cloud through and through.”
