“ICE designed our data center, configured and installed the system and network, and are now managing it for us — 800+ physical servers, 100+ network switches, and more than 3-petabytes of data.

— Senior Director IT, Telecommunication Company

“ICE has helped us design and implement a robust IT infrastructure as our company grew from 25 employees to 200+ employees and are currently maintaining the existing systems and network.”

— Senior Director Bioinformatics & IT, Biotech Company

“When our company was moving to a new building, ICE took care of the new office and server-room build-out and IT-related services. ICE did it all. They mapped server-room, power, HVAC, and cabling requirements. They selected, ordered, and installed data and voice lines. They configured and set up our entire IT hardware and software infrastructure—servers, firewall, switches, backup, storage, and everything else. They worked directly with all the vendors and updated us weekly. In fact, ICE even worked with the moving company to transfer over our existing IT hardware and helped us settle in. Thanks to ICE, the move went very smoothly. ICE is now maintaining our IT infrastructure.”

— Vice President Bioinformatics & IT, Biotech Company

“ICE designed our infrastructure when we were only a twenty-employee company. As our business has grown — we now employ over a hundred people — ICE has been able to grow and manage our IT infrastructure with no trouble.”

— Vice President, Finance & Operations, Biotech Company
