Pain Points

The MSP couldn’t handle the growth from an infrastructure and policy perspective to go along with the numerous outages based on policies and limitations within the current environment. Since the organization was expanding across the US, the dental practice needed a uniform infrastructure and policies for future growth with a limited IT staff. The dental practice management company wanted a dynamic solution that could expand and deploy quickly, and wanted to know what the OpEx would be every time a new office was added.


After being introduced to the opportunity through a sales partner, RapidScale’s team of experts analyzed the customer’s needs. The dental practice management company wanted a dynamic solution that could expand and deploy quickly. The client also wanted to know what the OpEx would be every time a new office was added. Rapid-Scale was asked to evaluate the environment and build a roadmap to a unified infrastructure built for future expansion.


RapidScale presented the customer with a solution to address their pain points. After evaluating, RapidScale compartmentalized the infrastructure into five parts: email, IaaS, failover, virtual desktops, and policies/procedures. RapidScale upgraded the client’s email to CloudMail (Exchange 2013, and put in a migration plan for the 250+ employees. After the email migration, the cloud provider mapped a plan for a migration of the infrastructure to CloudServer with CloudDesktop (virtual desktops). RapidScale then worked with the client’s IT team to identify which applications and servers needed high availability for CloudRecovery with Failover and built out a replication environment in a secondary data center. Once that was stood up, RapidScale helped build out new policies and procedures to use going forward so any future acquisitions would go smooth.

The client can now take advantage of a scalable environment for future acquisitions and a stable environment with failover. The IT team knows the exact cost of each new employee coming on board, and is able to make quicker decisions.

See What our Customers are Saying

  • The amount of detail Gary provided me, as well as his responsiveness, was far beyond anything we had with our last vendor. The efficiency of your RFC process is a breath of fresh air! I’m also extremely satisfied with the RapidScale support team as a whole in regards to their proficiency, sense of urgency and etiquette.
  • I checked out some new partner resources – great stuff. We are already getting some good traction here. You guys really offer some great support!!
  • After being introduced to RapidScale at an event, I cannot help but be more impressed each time I hear more. I attended a webinar too, and once again, I’m really impressed with the opportunities. When I looked in your Partner Portal for the first time I thought, “Wow was I crazy for not looking sooner!” Great stuff in there.
  • Austin was amazing, professional, knowledgeable and personable – a true star!
  • I appreciate Steven’s quick response time and friendly demeanor when discussing problems. Great service and follow up!
  • RapidScale has been by far better than [our previous provider]. Our team is so much happier!
  • Our timing satisfaction rating reflects that these were carry-over issues from our prior vendor, but we’re pleased with RapidScale, and Steven’s thoroughness in reviewing and handling through to resolution.
  • I have been thrilled with RapidScale, I love the fact that when I call to initiate a ticket the technicians answer the phone. With [our last provider], we left a message then had to wait for a technician to call back. Sometimes this could take days!  Thank you, I am really happy with your services.
  • Sent a ticket for a server being unresponsive and received a call within a few minutes. Great response and resolution.
  • I believe the technician’s name was David. He was very pro-active on a Saturday. Got the issue resolved quickly. High marks.
  • Thanks for the quick response and resolution!  And I appreciate the fact that the tech gave information about what the problem was, how it was fixed, etc. That is always better than a simple “it’s now fixed”.
  • The level of service that we have received from RapidScale has been completely awesome.  All of our IT team and the owner has commented on it.  You guys are doing a fantastic job!
  • It’s been great so far having RapidScale host our email. We had it in-house before and that was just may more trouble than it was worth.
  • We’ve been extremely pleased with the service and customer support RapidScale has provided us. We don’t have a large IT staff and so the ability to lean on them has been perfect.
  • We’ve now transferred almost our entire company into RapidScale’s cloud. We started with just our email – we moved from in-house to hosted – then we moved the rest of our servers into the RapidScale cloud and now we’re in the final stages of implementing our virtual desktops! It’s really incredible to have everything running in the cloud and to have it all be so easy.
  • Working with RapidScale has been great so far. Our organization had a lot of our servers in-house and it was such a pain. It’s 1,000 times better now that we moved it all to the cloud.
  • RapidScale quite literally re-invented our IT situation. It was a complete mess before and we are absolutely THRILLED with everything that they’ve helped us to accomplish. Our network runs smoother and our virtual environments are the best addition we’ve made in a very long time.
  • The whole “cloud” thing was incredibly daunting when we first started exploring it for our business. We didn’t really understand the way everything worked and how it was going to help us get past some of the technology speed bumps we had. I worked with the RapidScale sales team and they were really very helpful and made me completely comfortable with the solution. We’ve been running on the CloudOffice interface for about 4 months now and are 100% satisfied and so happy we made the choice to move to RapidScale.
  • RapidScale helped to not only significantly lower our costs, but to help make our work environment more productive as well as more reliable and stable.
  • I LOVE THIS TECHNOLOGY.  I am so excited to be in this new phase within our organization. As a proud partner of RapidScale, this week alone I’ve dealt with 3 major consultations in Colorado with hundreds of employees each! This technology is truly exciting stuff. They make the process so easy, from training, to quoting, to installation! I LOVE HOW EASY THAT WAS. Amazing. You all ROCK!
