International Packaging Corp. Turns to CAI Managed IT for Network Stability and Uptime
November 8, 2018 -- Smithfield, RI -- CAI Managed IT today announced that the company has been selected by International Packaging Corp. (InterPak) to deploy a virtualized computer network and IT infrastructure at InterPak's Pawtucket, Rhode Island-based manufacturing and distribution facility.
InterPak had been operating in a sophisticated but dated IT infrastructure consisting of both physical and virtualized servers. “As our hardware aged, the servers were becoming increasingly unstable,” said Joe P. Checrallah, Jr., Director of Information Technology for InterPak. “At the same time, our Storage Area Network (SAN) device, critical for transmitting and storing our large design files, was beginning to create bottlenecks and impact productivity. We knew we needed to upgrade the infrastructure and, at the same time, automate the security process for our network-connected servers and PCs. We felt the time was right to look at outsourcing the overhaul of our Microsoft Windows operating environment and systems,” Checrallah continued. “After our initial meeting with CAI Managed IT, we were convinced they were the right team for the job.”
CAI conducted an initial network assessment to understand the scope and complexities of InterPak’s infrastructure. This assessment mapped the company’s current network configuration and identified connected endpoints and their individual security safeguards. Based on this analysis ― as well as feedback from InterPak’s staff regarding specific issues ― CAI recommended a consolidation of InterPak’s server environment and the deployment of software to provide 24/7 monitoring and problem remediation for all network-connected devices. Frank Motta, Executive Vice President for CAI Managed IT said, “As we planned the project with InterPak, the goal was to build out a reliable, long-term and scalable IT solution that would secure the architecture and provide unhindered business growth.”
CAI monitors InterPak’s servers and workstations and automatically updates the devices with the latest security patches from Microsoft. The server and desktop management service provides remote management, problem remediation and automatic updates of all critical components in InterPak’s Windows-based operating environment.
