Website hosting might not seem the most complicated part of your web strategy, but if you don’t get it right it can impact your day to day business.
Bedrock Learning are a rapidly growing online learning portal used by schools. The online programme is research based and designed to help students learn, and remember, new vocabulary. As students progress through hundreds of interactive lessons, schools are provided with the vital data they need to demonstrate progress in literacy.
Bedrock had found the existing providers solution limited. They had no ability to expand resources with that provider and as such the portal was struggling to keep up with demand.
Aaron Leary, Director, needed an IT partner to provide a hosted web server that could improve the performance of the existing system but also allow for rapid expansion. After engaging a number of companies who couldn’t provide the solution, Aaron spoke to Mark Burgess, Director, HW Technology to see if a solution could be found.
After initial discussions to outline how the the learning portal was structured and how the databases were stored, HW Technology’s Web Development Manager – Chris McNally provided a solution that met Aaron and Bedrock’s requirements. On completion Aaron said…”The business was expanding and we needed a reliable and robust system to cope with this expansion. We had used a different firm to migrate and host our site – disaster! HWT made the whole process simple and were able to quickly understand the niche elements of our system. The hosted server provisioned by HW Technology provided us with the expected level of performance on day one. We also have the ability to increase resource later as and when required. The system was migrated seamlessley over a weekend and we didn’t experience any service outage from a client persepective”
