Innovative technology is at the heart of Wolfson’s business and for the past eight years the company has used the services of Pulsant from its state-of-the-art datacentre based in the Newbridge area of Edinburgh. Wolfson’s headquarters are located in the Scottish capital and the company has more than 420 employees serving customers across 12 different locations from Europe, the US, Australia and Asia.
Consult and create
Andrew Ralston, Wolfson Microelectronics said: “We first selected Pulsant more than eight years ago when we were looking for a reliable provider of connectivity services and the most robust and secure disaster recovery site. We needed a local facility within a suitable distance from our head office to meet all of our business continuity requirements”.
Pulsant initially provided Wolfson Microelectronics with a metro Ethernet connection via its Newbridge datacentre as well as an ultra-fast internet connection.
Ralston continued: “We have been partnering with Pulsant ever since and now use their colocation facilities too. We requested floor space in the datacentre to allow a disaster recovery specialist organisation to deliver two racks of servers to recover to. Three years later, we asked for two colocation racks to give us provision for a more dynamic DR solution. Now we host the DR solution at Newbridge and have been using this model for the last five years”.
Integrate and activate
Wolfson Microelectronics houses its hardware in three racks within Pulsant’s purpose built Tier 3 datacentre facility. The Newbridge, Edinburgh facility has seven data halls currently online and operational and is located 20 minutes away from the city centre, providing a high quality, secure location with 24 hour onsite support services. Each of Pulsant’s ten UK owned datacentres are underpinned by its 10 GB data network and ISO 27001.
“Part of our approach as a business is to use our technology solutions to drive business outcomes for our customers and deliver real value. This includes understanding our customer, their objectives, challenges and evolving requirements. Our relationship with the Wolfson team is a case in point. As we’ve supplied more solutions to them over the years, our understanding of their needs has improved so that we’re excellently poised to assist them in harnessing unlimited business potential”, said Chris Shields, Regional Sales Director, Pulsant.
Support and evolve
From supplying a Metro Ethernet connection through the Newbridge datacentre, to supply colocation services that are vital to Wolfson’s business, Pulsant continues to support the company and work to find ways in which to meet its changing needs.
The Pulsant solution has given us a well-managed internet connection and the most robust and resilient host for our disaster recover solution”.
