Background

Summary

Gyrocom are infrastructure specialists. We build the next generation of enterprise IT infrastructure and our aim is to keep it simple. We help our customers spend less on the things that can be commoditised and more on the things that differentiate them from their competition.

Specialising in optimising the utilisation of virtual infrastructures, thereby greatly reducing waste, and increasing VM density in the Enterprise environment, all whilst assuring application performance.

Enabling balance between cost and performance, through matching workload profiles and intelligently placing them within the available pool of resources.

For new projects, make the best use of existing resources, rather than costly new investments on hardware, licensing, power and support.

Understanding the existing virtual infrastructure, making it more efficient, and capacity planning for future growth.

Success with customers in recovering 30% wasted compute resources, 30% storage and 89% saw a return on investment within 3 months.

Experience

Strategic Account Manager

Gyrocom
– Present (1 year 4 months)

Gyrocom enable customers to understand and gain complete control of their current IT Infrastructure, leveraging innovative technologies to meter the following:

How much IT do you have?
How much are you actually using?
How much is being wasted?

IT is too often wasteful and bloated, we believe in giving customers insight into their infrastructure, developing solutions that make the most of what they have, whilst using pioneering software to analyse and plan for future business requirements.

We are now running infrastructure audit days (entirely free), which shows you where you are today, and making the most from what you've got.

At a risk of making grand statements: IT is evolving rapidly, and in a new direction. Early adopters are seeing immediate tangible returns. If you do want to know more, please ask to connect. If you would be interested in a free day audit, please let me know!
