The Challenges

Carpet & Flooring contacted Stratum Now as part of an internal realignment & refocus of their web service, including a wish to deliver online ordering & fulfillment to its international trade clients. The need to modernise its web hosting offering, including scaling up to eventually deliver a web-based online shop presence, prompted Carpet & Flooring to look for a nearby trusted advisor who could provide a fully-managed dedicated server hosting.

The Solution

Within 48 hours of order approval, Stratum Now had provisioned a dedicated server capable of Carpet & Flooring’s current and future requirements in its Slough-based colocation data centre, complete with Web Application Firewall, and then began the migration of the customer’s existing WordPress website.

“Stratum Now handled the whole process, including updating our DNS domain name records, once we had tested and signed off on the migration,” said Peter Russell, Head of IT. “We’ve been clients of Stratum Now’s for many years so far and we are happy to be leveraging yet more value from their expertise.”


The Benefits

Stratum Now’s dedicated server offering is backed by a 100% uptime SLA for power and network, and 99.9% uptime for the server hardware & service itself.
