Colocation and Rackspace


Greg Bentley
Technical Specialist
www.vixtechnology.com
Vix Technology has delivered market-leading smart booking, ticketing and secure payment systems with real-time information and management data to over 200 cities or regions around the world.

They work with governments and businesses who are improving the experience and engagement of customers on the journey and at the events and places they attend. Vix launched the first major city commercial smartcard ticketing system in Hong Kong and have continued with pace and enthusiasm to deliver world leading systems and emerging technology solutions including EMV, mobile, contactless, NFC and BLE to payment and access services.

Expansion of the Vix Technology UK Data Centre required a secure and resilient co-location geographically close to our existing London Docklands facility.

Capable of supporting a high density of equipment and providing the up-time demanded by our customers, EX Networks fitted the bill in helping us achieve continued delivery and growth of our systems and services.

Throughout our planning, migration and production phases we have been provided with a professional, knowledgeable and friendly service. Whether it be prompt assistance with simple tickets or investigation with complex network issues we where supported with responsive, skilled staff and great user experience. As our UK business grows a reliable and flexible hosting provider is vital to our success and we believe EX Networks will help us in that goal .

As Vix's UK operations grew they were in search for a flexible and reliable infrastructure partner to grow with their company. Vix decided to take several racks within our Global Switch 2 data centre as well as IP transit and multiple MPLS point-to-point circuits to their existing data centres. EXN have since been working with Vix on several bespoke hosting solutions for their clients' requirements.

Infrastructure Manager

What prompted you to seek EX Networks services? What situation or problem did you need to solve?
We needed to set up our voice and application servers for 24 hours uninterrupted remote access to be able to support our operations. The most important factors we were looking out for included clean uninterrupted power, high speed internet, low CapEx & low OpEx as well as security away from intrusion.

What made you believe that EX Networks was the best for achieving your desired result?
We settled for EX Networks after considering a few other colocation service providers because: 1. We got the quickest response and follow up calls from the Technical Sales Rep that contacted us after we sent a request. 2. The Transfer Speed EX Networks was offering was miles apart from other service provider's offering, which was a very important feature we were looking for. We didn't believe at first when the Technical Sales Rep - told us the bandwidth and speed until we tested it on our servers. It was amazing. 3. The pricing was very reasonable and payment options were very flexible making it easy to sign up and complete our setup process within a few hours of taking the decision to go with EX Networks.

Describe why you feel that working with EX Networks was successful.
Working with EX Networks has been successful because they have delivered excellently in their service. During our first week of signing up to their service, we needed rack rails for our server and EX Networks was able to help source it and mount our server with very little impact to our service. Since then, we have had no downtime. The very few support issues we've had were also given prompt, professional and clear responses.

If a potential client was on the fence about whether to work with EX Networks or not, what would you say to them?
I'd say "Send your servers to EX Networks, wait for your Maintenance IP and be sure you keep your end of the SLA because they will keep theirs".

Virtual Data Centre

Head of IT

BMCE Bank International is an international bank specialising in the African continent. Headquartered in London, the bank connects international institutions and investors with opportunities across the continent, and provides corporate Africa with access to international capital markets and financial expertise.

As part of our ‘cloud strategy’ BMCE Bank International were looking to move applications out of our data centres and onto SaaS and IaaS platforms. EXN were initially engaged to assist with the migration of our on-premises data centre to a multi-tenanted data centre. EXN’s on-site staff were extremely responsive, knowledgeable and pragmatic, and their approach was key to ensuring the success of the migration.

Shortly after the initial data centre move, we migrated some of our key services from our VMware platform onto EXN’s VMware based vDC, allowing us to decommission legacy kit, and utilised EXN’s expertise to upgrade our Exchange platform. We have been very impressed with EXN since our first engagement, and they continue to provide innovative solutions and support. All members of staff we have dealt with have been extremely competent and helpful, and projects were successfully completed in a timely manner and within budget. We would have no hesitation in recommending EXN for any similar work, and would engage them for any of own future projects

BMCE Bank International have a number of Virtual Machines in one of our two VMware vDC platforms. These VMs were migrated from an existing solution with ease due to the harmonious nature of VMware. EXN provided direct connectivity from BMCE to our vDC through our carrier grade network, and BMCE utilised EXN managed services to carry out a multi-mailbox Microsoft Exchange migration.
