TRUTEX adopts a uniform approach to their Storage and Backup - provided by Concorde IT Group.

Trutex is the leading name in school uniform and school sportswear across the UK today, and has been supplying quality clothing for 145 years. 

Dedicated to their customers, and with a strong commitment and unique ability to keep in touch with the needs of their customers, they have maintained their position at the leading edge of the industry.

During the peak season for supply of school uniforms Trutex becomes a 24 hour business and it’s absolutely critical that all the IT systems and business critical applications are fully resilient and able to be recovered quickly in the event of system malfunction.

The existing SANS were ageing and early generation and had started showing signs of unreliability.

Trutex asked Concorde, their incumbent IT Service Provider, to propose a solution that would meet the business objectives to reduce backup recovery times and make their systems more responsive to the business needs.

Concorde proposed implementing a NetApp storage solution, upgrading to the latest version of VMWare, and installing Veeam backup – all designed and implemented by the Concorde Professional Services team in time for the school uniform rush.

The Trutex IT Manager said “We have been working with Concorde for several years now and find that they provide a great service as well as sound advice on the best technologies to use to achieve our business objectives – and within our budgetary requirements.  The NetApp solution they proposed will improve our recovery times, and overall reduce our storage costs. 

I would be happy to recommend Concorde to anyone looking for a trusted IT Partner”

The benefits that Trutex will accrue from the upgrade include

  • More resilient infrastructure minimising the risk of unplanned downtime due to hardware failures 

  • More effective backup solution reducing the Recovery Points and make the actual recovery near instantaneous

  • Remove risk from the Trutex business 

  • Make the business more agile through IT
