“Frankly we are quite a difficult company to work for as we want everything yesterday. ControlCircle has been particularly accommodating, got us the datacentre space quickly and we've been very impressed with their level of detail and quality of work in terms of installation.”
Richard Einsiedl, Director of IT, DeviceAnywhere
“The service I have received from ControlCircle has been superb and ranks amongst the best. I am very comfortable assigning critical project tasks to ControlCircle, I can rely on the work to be completed correctly and within required timelines. ControlCircle definitely adds value to our business.”
Mike Jones, Head of IT and operations, Exec-Appointments
"The reliability and failover capability of the ControlCircle “dark fibre” network is seen as a key factor in the speed and performance of connectivity between our sites and the foundation of our Disaster Recovery strategy. ControlCircle was the only supplier capable of providing a service that ties in 7 tier-1 IP providers combined with access to highly skilled individuals 24 x 7.”
Stephen Gallagher, partner, data analytics KPMG Forensic Technology
"We needed a partner who is easy to work with and flexible as our business is very reactive - speed is normally of the essence as projects are one off and short term where a client will engage with us for a specific job. ControlCircle's approach supports this.
This is the first time we've worked with an outside partner in forensics as we simply didn't have the resources in-house to expand the operation as fast as we wanted."
Simon Gibbs, Managing Director, eplatform
"eplatforms operate and own our own hosting infrastructure and partnered with ControlCircle to provide a far more resilient network. From the outset the ControlCircle team put together a clear and easy to understand migration plan. Working together with us, they ensured a seamless move to their new data centre suite and the outcome was a resounding success!
Luke West, Infrastructure Manager, Rightmove
“After seventeen years of running datacentres in many countries for many companies, it is hugely reassuring to come to a company like ControlCircle who understand the requirements and the standards needed to make this complex environment work properly. They can help Rightmove deliver the highest quality of service to its customers. I would recommend talking to them if you have such a requirement!"
David Abbott, Operations Manager, NCC Group, formerly Siteconfidence
"We have been very impressed with their service delivery, including management of maintenance windows and any communication related to technical updates and will certainly be looking to use them again for any future projects!"
Andrew Phillips, Head of Systems, Tradefair
“ControlCircle offer value for money, have an impressive client base who have similar requirements to us in terms of uptime and have taken the time to assemble a team who really know what they're doing from a datacentre services perspective. We'd be silly not to take advantage of it. ControlCircle understood the standards and degree of perfection I expect in terms of process and documentation yet have been flexible and quick to respond to changing scope. This is often mutually exclusive. Either suppliers are good at process, but not particularly flexible, or adaptable but poor on detail. Our experience with ControlCircle is they're both.”
