RHS Chelsea Flower ShowSummer time is here…. well, it should be. As per usual the British weather is playing its part by providing us with its typically unseasonal cold and wet introduction. However there are few thousand of us hoping for sunshine, at least for the next few days. That’s because the RHS Chelsea Flower Show has opened its gates to the public. From today until Saturday, the world’s most famous garden show is open to us as well as the elements.

There is an array of designs from across the world that have taken their inspiration from religion through to technology such as the newly crowned Gold Medal winner ‘Dark Matter

With almost 85,000 followers on Twitter alone, there is huge interest online in the RHS’s showpiece event. The RHS website is the focal point for all the news and images coming out of the Show. So how they plan for it is of huge importance. This is why the RHS placed its IT network and cloud services in iomart’s hands.

The solution we provide for the RHS is a hybrid cloud incorporating VMware, our private fibre network to support its VPN and our CloudSure hosting platform. The result is an instantly scalable, secure and extremely reliable service that, as Robert Reilly, Head of IT for the RHS, says ‘‘offers the world class, resilient, enterprise data centre facilities that we needed at a price we could afford.’’ Although the weather cannot be guaranteed, the IT requirements of the RHS can be.

So whether you are lucky enough to have a ticket for the RHS Chelsea Flower Show this week, or you are enjoying the coverage on television, remember that if your business wants to ensure that its IT and web presence is both cost effective and reliable for that next big campaign or vital showcase, we can offer the solution to support you.
