Sun Branding Solutions have been delivering solutions to their customers since 1893 and have a proud history of innovating to continue to deliver ground-breaking solutions. As customers’ requirements continue to evolve to include shorter timescales, larger assets and increasing seasonal variation, Sun Branding Solutions initiated a 5 year strategy with a view to migrate as much of their IT environment as possible to the cloud in order to take advantage of scalability, geographic distribution and high availability.
This journey began with migrating their data centre infrastructure to Azure, followed by the implementation of Microsoft StorSimple to deliver flexible and scalable storage. The StorSimple solution replaced an ageing 125Tb disk and tape solution with a petabyte of hybrid cloud storage, eliminating more than 15 hours a week of administration and reducing mean time to recovery from weeks to minutes – and reduced storage spend in the process.
Sun Branding Solutions are also working with Solidsoft Reply to deliver state of the art products to their customers including enabling self-service Business Intelligence with Microsoft Power BI and predictive analytics with Azure Machine Learning.
