GSX Solutions Ensures Critical Domino Communications During Oxfam GB Disaster ReliefNew Case Study Details How GSX Solutions Instituted Cost-Effective Email Safeguards for Relief Areas With Critical IT Infrastructures (November 02, 2011)
BUFFALO, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 11/02/11 -- GSX Solutions [www.gsx.com], the global leader in proactive, consolidated monitoring and analysis of enterprise collaboration environments, today announced publication of a case study [http://www.gsx.com/case-studies] detailing how GSX helped Oxfam GB institute cost-effective safeguards to ensure critical Domino email communications during disaster relief operations in areas with critical IT infrastructures.
Oxfam GB's roots go back in 1942, when a group of British people organized to send food supplies to starving women and children in enemy-occupied Greece. Today, the organization has approximately 4,500 staff and 20,000 volunteers who respond to crises around the world, including the Haitian earthquake and cholera epidemic, and the floods in Pakistan.
During a crisis, rapid and reliable communications can literally spell the difference between life and death. The organization relies on hundreds of IBM Lotus Domino servers for worldwide messaging and collaboration environment. It is critical to identify potential problems with the messaging servers before they lead to performance degradation or outages.
GSX Solutions faced both technical and budgetary challenges: areas in critical need often have very poor communications infrastructures, and every penny spent on IT is a penny Oxfam can't spend on relief. Following the implementation of GSX Monitor to automate daily monitoring and administration, and GSX Analyzer to automate management and capacity trend reports, Oxfam was able to reduce administrative overhead by 25 percent, and cut server down time by 30 percent.
