Premier IT Solutions
Formed in 1892, Newcastle United have become one of the most recognisable brands in European football. In a sport that is now played out in the media 24/7, the need for a resilient, always available IT infrastructure is more important than ever before.
As part of the ongoing IT strategy that plays a vital role in ensuring the highest levels of service to their growing number of customers and media partners, Newcastle United required a flexible and resilient IT infrastructure capable of guaranteeing their availability.
Newcastle United took the approach of working alongside Onyx Group’s solution architects to design and implement a scalable IT infrastructure that not only incorporated data centre services, but also the highest standard of internet connectivity and off-site IT disaster recovery.
Newcastle United are now hosting their high availability servers in Onyx Group’s Newcastle-based Data Centre. With failover servers hosted elsewhere across Onyx Group’s Data Centre estate, the club are able to eliminate any potential single-points of failure, allowing them to reach unrivalled levels of uptime.
Acting as the foundation of their solution, Onyx Group have designed and built a multi-site managed Wide Area Network (WAN) solution that integrated their sites with centralised resilient Data Centre hosting and Disaster Recovery. This provides the football club with an end-to-end managed service for their business.
To maximise the levels of support provided to the club, Newcastle United now have access to Onyx Group’s award-winning Onetouch support service, which monitors and manages their network and desktop estate 24/7. This allows Onyx to identify and rectify incidents before a service disruption can occur.
Onyx Group’s solution has provided Newcastle United with:
- An end-to-end framework guaranteeing the highest levels of availability.
- Total peace of mind for the security, resilience and availability of their mission-critical data.
- A scalable platform to enable future business growth.
- Rapid access to their data.
- The ability to maintain communication and a high-level of service to their customers and media partners.
