JOHANNESBURG, SA – October 14, 2015 — / — Symplexity, a comprehensive human resources and payroll system provider, has signed up for infrastructure as a service (IaaS) with high performing and secure ICT solution provider, Datacentrix, in a three-year contract, citing an effortless partnership and dynamic solution as the main drivers for this project.

Symplexity MD, Louis Nortje, explains that the company, which handles the development of HR and payroll software for a number of the country’s large-scale mining and construction companies, was recently sub-contracted to deliver a payroll solution to monitor around 15 000 staff on a monthly basis. The project also required a secure, cloud-based technology environment with a backup strategy and fail-over plans in place as non-negotiable.

“We looked at a number of cloud platform options within the marketplace and opted for Datacentrix’s highly agile, next-generation IaaS cloud services offering,” Nortje states. “Payroll is an integral part of large-scale projects encompassing thousands of employees, as a related issue could cause serious labour challenges for our clients. The project that we outsourced to Datacentrix required the hosting of 40 servers within the cloud, with secure, reliable backup and storage options as a necessity; essentially, a wall-to-wall hosted cloud infrastructure solution.

“Not only could Datacentrix provide us with a really dynamic cloud solution, the company impressed us with its extremely hands-on approach to this relationship and not a cold, clinical deal. Our experience with Datacentrix has been outstanding and very positive.

“Aside from the strong partnership approach, the company has also given quick turnaround times and shown a willingness to assist – with a complete lack of red tape and any other bureaucratic hindrances. We look forward to growing our partnership moving forward.”

Datacentrix’s IaaS offering provides on-demand computing infrastructure, all the way to the level of operating system. “Flexibility is key in the cloud as each company has its own specific needs to be met,” says Jan Dry, CTO and head of cloud services at Datacentrix. “We can offer clients fit-for-purpose solutions, from server on-demand, storage on-demand, virtualisation and backup services to optional off-site storage, with an adaptable, per user costing structure.”

Datacentrix’s cloud services are delivered from in-house, secure, highly available Gauteng-based data centres, and are supported by the organisation’s always-on service desk. A self-service policy aids the management of service requests with automated provisioning in minutes. Traditional support services using service desk agents and technicians are also integral to the offering.
