Merrimak Capital, based in Novato, California, hosted 52 employees using five on-premise servers with more than 5TB of data, leveraging an in-house IT department supported by the Kyocera ICT Managed Services Team. The headquarters was moving to Utah and employees were now going to span multiple states. The organization was faced with the challenge of providing high-performance, secure access to required applications and data and accommodating office-based workers as well as remote and mobile workers, all while conserving capital and ensuring scalability for anticipated growth and expansion.
Combining cloud servers, an updated infrastructure for their new physical location and cloud desktop services, Kyocera delivered a solution that accommodates their storage, security, and access to systems requirements and ensures that all of their local and remote users have a fully functional, high-performance experience. Merrimak workers are now able to securely access their individually configured cloud desktop from anywhere, using virtually any Internet-enabled device, with full access to their applications, data, and network resources.
