dry_iceI don’t know about you, but when I think of dry ice I think of spooky Halloween punch and middle school science experiments. As it turns out, it’s also a great cleaning agent for heavy machinery. That’s multi-purposing at its finest!

iland’s customer, Cold Jet, specializes in dry ice cleaning and production for companies across the globe. They’ve developed innovative, environmentally responsible cleaning solutions that help companies in various industries keep their machines up to snuff. Cold Jet’s dry ice blasting systems use recycled carbon dioxide and eliminate the need for chemicals and water in the cleaning process.

Headquartered in Ohio, USA, it was an office move for their Belgium location which prompted Infrastructure Engineer and team lead, Ben Snowden, to search for a DR provider that could securely and cost-effectively protect their global IT systems.

“We had a DR site set up in our previous Belgium office,” Snowden explained. “When it came time to move, we had to forego an on-premises DR strategy, as the new office couldn’t accommodate our equipment. It had also been difficult for our team to maintain that hardware from Ohio. We knew that leveraging a DR provider would help to off-load challenging tasks like that.”

Cold Jet had a month to find a provider and get the system up and running, so they quickly had to assess and choose a company that would meet all of their requirements. So, what was Cold Jet looking for?

  • A more efficient way to conduct DR testing
  • A solution that was easy to manage for global locations
  • A provider that would allow them to scale and pay for resources as needed
  • The familiarity of a VMware based cloud environment
