Initially Cordant Group had an aging estate of NetApp storage that was becoming expensive to manage and maintain using original vendor support agreements. Cordant Group was looking for an organisation with UK wide coverage to take the task on for supporting these platforms including hardware devices and the NetApp Storage stack.
ICC have worked alongside and supported the Cordant Group for over 3 years. During this time, we have provided onsite hardware support on their NetApp Storage solutions across the UK. In addition to the hardware support, ICC have provided support on the NetApp software stack both remotely and onsite. We have also supplied additional storage shelves for the NetApp estate.
More recently, Cordant have extended the scope of the contract to include support for their HP server estate within the UK and mainland Europe.

In addition to providing these support services ICC are now providing additional engineering resource to the Cordant Group for structured cabling services.
