RIBA Enterprises to save six figures with Redstones cloud services

RIBA Enterprises, the knowledge business of the Royal Institute of British Architects, has become the latest customer to go-live with Redstones cloud infrastructure as a service (IaaS) platform.

RIBA Enterprises, already a long-standing customer of Redstone, is using IaaS to support its web environments. It is likely to save in excess of £100,000 in IT maintenance and hardware costs over the next three years.

Mark Warnock, Business Systems Manager at RIBA Enterprises said: "The move to virtualised hosting made perfect sense to us; virtualisation dramatically reduces our costs and provides levels of flexibility and resilience that we simply could not have afforded with physical machines. Redstone has been a true partner of RIBA Enterprises working closely in the migration from physical to virtual hosting."

"A strong quality assurance process is a hallmark of the top players in the market," said Biggerstaff. "They have stringent standards in place to ensure that the cabling consistently meets and exceeds requirements".
