DCH Advertising Agency Switches To DediPower And Saves 40% On Hosting Costs
Cloud and Managed Hosting expert, DediPower, has achieved significant cost savings for London-based integrated agency DCH, which manages and directs international communications requirements for more than 20 high-profile clients, including Nikon, D-Link, Invisalign, Fuller’s, Discovery Foods, MG, and The Football League.
By moving to DediPower’s virtualised Private Cloud hosting platform, DCH has achieved a 40% saving on previous hosting expenditure and gained three times more capacity and 100% availability. It has reduced infrastructure from 10 to 4 servers with a subsequent reduction in associated operating and energy costs.
“Maintaining 100% availability is fundamental to our high profile client websites so we need a service we can rely on at all times, whatever the demands,” states, Phil Hobgen, Technical Director, DCH. “Our system has to be versatile enough to handle both web hosting and the deployment of high volume targeted email campaigns. Security is another key parameter – particularly because of the large volumes of sensitive customer information held for direct digital campaigns.”
Hobgen reveals, “Our experience of DediPower is very positive. It offers a compelling combination of entrepreneurial drive and a real passion for customer service and support as well as obvious technical strengths. Using the latest server virtualisation techniques, Dedipower is able to run DCH’s systems at maximum efficiency; providing flexible capacity that can be scaled up as well as out. This means the system offers enough capacity to deal with new DCH client campaigns and websites without adding new servers.
Hobgen, confirms, “DediPower ensures we have the right technical knowledge in the right place to make sure we operate as effectively as possible. We are much more competitive as a result. Their support is excellent; we deal with the people who are actively designing and running our host system so they are 100% focussed on our needs. Due to DediPower’s diligence and professionalism, we were able to migrate our system, to budget and in exact timescales – and with absolutely no disruption to our clients.”
Chris Miller, CEO, DediPower, adds, “Working with some of the country’s leading digital agencies, DediPower understand the challenges they face providing 24/7 digital presence for multiple clients. We can help them to meet these with resilient, elastic and competitively priced Cloud hosting and intelligent, responsive support.”
