The majority of the existing infrastructure was nearing end-of-life, which posed a risk in terms of performance and reliability. While upgrading the database, exchange, and other services was fairly straightforward, it needed to be done in a way that did not result in any interruption to their operations.The solution was to carry out the work after hours.

The first part of upgrading RKS Sales existing infrastructure was migrating active directory, exchange
on-premises, and SQL Server data from the old physical server to the new VM environment.

Once the new server was successfully migrated, we launched our AccelMSP+ management and monitoring software across the entire network through the server. This allowed us to identify issues such as hard drive failure, abnormal temperatures, and devices that are critically outdated.


There were a lot of moving parts in this project, and Accel IT delivered everything on time. Network bottlenecks were identified and addressed, software has been successfully migrated, all outdated machines were upgraded, network security has been tightened, and many other improvements applied.

Accel IT provides ongoing managed services to RKS Sales, supporting all staff members, servers, and network devices so that RKS Sales can just Leave IT with us
