The COVID-19 pandemic dramatically impacted retailers across the globe and put a freeze on all projects for this company. With cloud migration as their top priority, this retailer faced several challenges. First, they had legacy assets that needed extended support while their workloads were on-premise. Second, they needed help removing gear that was decommissioned and moved to the cloud.
ReluTech assisted this company during a time where no additional budget was allocated towards IT projects. ReluTech provided a low-cost, flexible maintenance contract for hardware that was not completely decommissioned. Additionally, ReluTech bought old, decommissioned gear that took up space in their data center, which helped this retailer fully fund their maintenance contract.
ReluTech provided this company with flexible, cost-effective support for a mission-critical system, allowing them to stay under budget during the COVID-19 pandemic. Further, this retailer repurposed the 50% cost savings from old assets that ReluTech purchased to fully pay for a support contract that is still mission-critical.
“Working with ReluTech allowed us to enable our cloud-first strategy by assisting in two key ways, lowering costs on our maintenance contracts and finding value in old assets to help reduce overall costs of current projects. With the money we were provided on old gear, we were able to fully offset the costs of our maintenance contracts with ReluTech.”
