Infrastructure & IT Architecture Design

The first priority was updating Bader Martin’s infrastructure by moving their network and server environment to a virtualization model. Because Bader Martin’s rapid growth was outpacing what their network could handle, we configured the company's internal network pathways and increased their bandwidth. BlackPoint also assisted Bader Martin with configuring new switches and wireless capabilities. While previously limited, they now have the ability to access data wirelessly from anywhere in the office.


Future Proofing

To stay ahead of competition, it was vital to strategically implement current, cutting-edge technology. Considering Bader Martin’s unique needs, BlackPoint installed SAN Storage to create secure data redundancy so they could be confident that the data would be available 24/7. We also developed a disaster recovery and business continuity plan, utilizing BlackPoint's hybrid cloud disaster recover solution. Bader Martin was an early adopter of the recover fast model. 

Over the course of our 10 year partnership, we’ve supported their efforts to enhance their brand by researching and selecting the best of the latest technology. We couldn’t be more thrilled that Bader Martin considers BlackPoint a part of their team.
