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. Secondly, they needed help removing gear that had been decommissioned and moved to the cloud.
ReluTech assisted this company during a time where no additional budget was allocated towards IT projects. We provided a low-cost, flexible maintenance contract for hardware that was not completely decommissioned. Furthermore, we helped this retailer fully fund their maintenance contract by buying old, decommissioned gear that took up space in their data center. Thanks to ReluTech, a mission-critical system received the flexible support it needed to keep the business running without needing to request additional budget during the COVID-19 pandemic.
This retailer was able to repurpose the 50% cost savings from old assets that ReluTech purchased to fully pay for a support contract that is still mission-critical.
