Why we selected Bulletproof

When we started Netstrategies in 1998 we decided to manage our own server infrastructure.

Over the next ten years we added more and more application and database servers, switches, routers, firewalls and load balancers to accommodate the rapid growth of our business.

We liked cutting edge tech and took delivery of some of the first Dell Blade Servers in Australia. We were early tenants in Exodus giant new Sydney data centre - by 2001 standards atleast, and then Optus's Ultimo facilities.

You could say we were heavily invested in our own infrastructure.

But all that hardware meant endless management, monitoring and plenty of midnight maintenance.

So when our long-time infrastructure manager announced he was moving to Apple, we weighed up our options.

The stand out in 2010 was Bulletproof Networks, who that same year also made the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Australia.

Bulletproof offered us flexible managed infrastructure with a level of support that matched anything we did ourselves and were used to from our North American providers.

The change wasn't without a few challenges - what transition comes without surprises - but the result has exceeded our expectations of reliability, performance and support.

And the strategic kicker - no more midnight maintenance means uninterrupted focus on delivering Smart Solutions. Made Simple.
