GLASGOW, SCOTLAND – May 19, 2015 – / – A unified communications company in Nottingham has explained how it turned to iomart for help after one of its customers threatened to knock out all its services to other clients.

Mason Infotech ( ) had to react quickly as the new web portal its customer had launched to help martial arts teachers collect fees and track student attendance proved more popular than expected.  The website crashed under pressure of traffic so Mason Infotech turned to iomart to get it back online.

Stephen Mason, Managing Director of Mason Infotech, explains, ““Our customer was pulling his hair out. So we spoke to iomart and the data centre guys reacted incredibly quickly. We moved our customer’s application and front end server into the data centre and after only a couple of hours of downtime we had everything back up and running. Now they have a robust service from us in iomart’s cloud which is no longer restricted by bandwidth issues.”

Mason Infotech provides phone systems, connectivity and internet services to businesses throughout the Midlands. It now has all its core application services in iomart’s Nottingham data centre.

Stephen Mason, who acts as an IT consultant for Nottingham Means Business, continues, “By using a data centre you solve the issue of connectivity and issues of data and security in a far better way than most businesses could manage.”

iomart has two data centres in the East Midlands, in Nottingham and Leicester. They are N+1 in design, carrier neutral and are safe, secure and staffed 24 x 7.
