Business Scenario

Apar Industries Limited (APAR) has been witnessing a significant growth in its business over five decades. To support this growth, Apar realized that it is critical to have a robust, scalable and highly available IT infrastructure. However, setting up an IT infrastructure in-house would have involved a huge CapEx and managing it would have been a challenging task as well. Therefore, Apar decided to look for a managed IT hosting service provider who could provide a scalable and highly available IT infrastructure in an OpEx investment model and manage it as well.

Value Proposition

Apar had already availed of the hosted mailing exchange on Microsoft for 700+ users from Netmagic and was satisfied with the service provided. Hence, they decided to choose Netmagic as its managed IT hosting service provider.

"Since we had already evaluated Netmagic & had a good experience with Netmagic for our mail hosting services, we preferred to choose their datacenter services for hosting our business application (SAP) as well." says G. S Rao, AGM – IT, Apar Industries

He further adds, "The other reasons for choosing Netmagic were state-of-the-art datacenter facilities, dedicated and committed promoters, a focus on datacenter, co-location and managed services, carrier neutrality, and SLA based services and operations."

Apar has availed of colocation services for its business application (SAP) servers and hosted mail servicesfrom Netmagic. The company has also upgraded its servers recently.

"With the growth of applications in our organization, we had to upgrade our storage as well as server capacity. Netmagic helped us in scaling up our storage and server space. Whenever we have a requirement all we need to do is get in touch with our account manager and convey our requirements to him and it is taken care of."

Key Takeaways

Apar has been able to focus on its core business and its future growth plans rather than worry about IT infrastructure issues. The company has been able to realize significant cost efficiencies by outsourcing hosted services to Netmagic Solutions.
