  • Case Study – Elite Marine

The Brief

Elite Marine is a specialist marine fitting company, who handcraft and custom make decking and refits for boats and yachts across the UK and internationally. The company was in the process of redeveloping their website, to showcase their recent projects with high spec imagery and content. They required a scalable cloud infrastructure solution to host their new website, with a Linux Managed Service wrap around for ongoing server-side maintenance and security management.


We proposed a cloud infrastructure solution hosted on our industry leading Scholar VMware Cloud platform. With no fixed sizing, our engineering team built the cloud environment to the exact specification required for the new Elite Marine site, with offsite backup.

The Scholar VMware Cloud platform has VMware’s High Availability (HA) built in as standard and is spread across multiple availability zones. This gives clients the option to spread their hosted business assets across geographically separated locations. For Elite Marine we proposed our tier 3 London datacentre facility, with the option to scale out into a secondary availability zone.

For the Cloud Managed Service we proposed our Managed Base Service Plan, which allowed for our technical engineering team to take over the management and maintenance of the Elite Marine cloud infrastructure.

Lastly, we incorporate Scholar Cloud Backup which provided daily backups of the sites data. All Scholar Cloud Backup is hosted offsite from our primary datacentre locations, which delivers clients a multi-site hosting and backup solution as standard.

Client Testimonial

“Scholar was referred to Elite Marine from our Commercial Director, who had worked with Scholar in a previous role. As they came highly recommended, we had no hesitation in appointing Scholar as our Managed Cloud Infrastructure Partner. We’ve been really pleased with the performance and ongoing management which Scholar’s team delivers and would thoroughly recommend Scholar to any business looking for cloud infrastructure service.”
