Hybrid Server Backup Solution
– about our customer
Our client is a firm serving Fairfax, Virginia in Commercial Law, Consumer Collections and Medical Collection cases. It is owned by an attorney who has been licensed for 38 years.
Being a Law firm, the company has to manage a lot of documents, activities and dates etc., which requires a 3rd party server-client based application and it was working with very slow response time causing loss of productive human hours. Our client required a permanent solution with least changes to the environment and minimum down time
We checked the application’s dependency on the server and found that it was having a High Disk Queue Length (commonly knows as DQL) while running the application on all users simultaneously. Our suggestion to the client was moving the application hosting virtual server to a separate and faster disk as earlier it was sharing the drive with host server which consists backup application and other application hence creating higher IO/sec for the hard disk.
Benefits of the Solution
High increase in the application’s performance.
Server-client operation become faster after separating drives.
Minimum change in the existing server end setup.
Business was satisfied to have a solution which was quick, stable and without any change to their existing server environment. We were happy to deliver fast and easy solution to our customer.
