MSP Metacom deploys hyper-scale Nutanix Enterprise Cloud to meet demands of growth

Nutanix, announced that Metacom has successfully deployed Nutanix Enterprise Cloud as it embraces a new era of hyper-scalability to match the demands of its growing business. Drawing from the full Nutanix suite, the company has been able to seamlessly replace ageing infrastructure, gain complete visibility across client sites and geographies, and put itself in a position to scale up client requests in days.

As a managed service provider that also produces and deploys its own hardware, routers to ensure the effective delivery of its SD-WAN, POS, multi-media, and Wi-Fi services, Metacom turned to Nutanix to meet its needs for robust, secure, and uninterrupted access to its network. Notably, the company currently services clients from diverse industries, with a growing footprint in the retail sector, where it delivers services to more than 7000 retail outlets in over 20 countries.

“The sheer rate at which we are onboarding new clients is great for business, but it strains our technology. The environment was just not fit for purpose, could not scale, and could not support the growth we were experiencing. In short, if we did not make a move, our systems would fail us,” says Casper Visser, Network Manager, Metacom.

“Metacom has truly drawn the best out of the Enterprise Cloud Suite. They have created an environment that can scale as needed, have full visibility with tightly integrated management, and now have the resiliency and redundancy they wanted from a hyper-converged solution,” says Alex Russell, Regional Sales Manager, SADC at Nutanix.

When Metacom’s system upgrade window opened, it opted to investigate a hyper-converged platform that would afford it the scale it needed. The live, real-time hosted solutions it delivers include digital displays, audio and radio streaming, its full spectrum Wi-Fi services, VoIP, retail analytics, and its network performance solution Metacom Online. All of these systems cannot suffer any downtime and need to be able to scale in hours if a client’s needs change.
