“I need to do a little bragging on the Dobson team. They REALLY went above and beyond the call of duty to help me fix my scanning capabilities on my printer. It was such a pain not having it, and they were persistent in getting it fixed. Your team rocks and I wanted you to know!”
Admissions Coordinator, PARCway
“We entrust Dobson Technologies with managing and supporting all of our IT needs so we can focus on helping make children’s wishes come true. My employees love their response time and I love having them as our strategic technology partner.”
– Jeff Summers, President & CEO
“We have telephone equipment, telephone service and Internet service all from Dobson. The voice quality on their service is excellent, and we have a lot more options on the phone menus. Call answering is a lot easier for us than before. The people that we have dealt with at Dobson have been very good to us, and very reliable. They’ve really been good about answering our calls, and we’ve been really happy about how we’ve been treated.”
– Dr. Howard Zent, Red Earth Animal Hospital, Elk City, OK
“One of the things about Dobson’s fiber service is that it is very reliable. And the speed is there when we need it. We are running 20 MB right now, which has been outstanding. We ran a Gamer’s Charity event called Extra Life, where we stream for 24 hours straight and people can make donations. During that event we needed an upgrade to 100 MB for the weekend. That was awesome and we are very grateful to Dobson for that upgrade.”
– Jeff Priefert, Nine Collective, Weatherford, OK
“We have been using Dobson Technologies’ offsite backup since September 2007. Prior to this technology, tape backups were scheduled daily on our servers. Maintaining these backups would easily consume our IT department’s valuable time. Since the implementation of Dobson Technologies, we have been able to free IT resources for other tasks and reduce the cost of backup maintenance.
The initial installation was painless. Dobson Technologies explained in detail how they opearte and suggested best backup procedures for our environment. Our backups run nightly and confirmation reports are e-mailed daily.
Our data is available 24 x 7, via a web browser and the most current backup is available on a local drive. Restoring data has been simplified significantly and is only a few clicks of the mouse away!
After touring Dobson Technologies’ State-of-the-Art facility, I am certain that our data is secure and in the hands of experts. Dobson Technologies’ facility is equipped with battery backups, generators, 24 x 7 monitoring, climate controlled data center, and data redundancy. Should our facility be devastated by data loss through disaster, theft, or system crash, it would not be possible to continue daily operations without severe interruption. We have backed up more than 400 gigabytes of data which includes financial records, membership information, inventory of our collections, over 100,000 archived images, e-mail and appointment calendars, library catalogs, as well as spreadsheets and correspondence. Knowing that our data is secure at an off-site location relieves me knowing that the Museum could be back in full operation quickly and flawlessly if needed. Dobson Technologies’ data backup and recovery solution offers maximum security and most of all, peace of mind.”
– Sharon Kasper, National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum
“Our office has recently set up an account with Dobson Technologies to provide our daily backups for our busy dental practice. The initial visit was made at the ODA and the knowledgeable people at that meeting was the reason we decided to let Dobson Technologies handle our company’s backups. The one on one experiences with each and every person has been OUTSTANDING. Extreme knowledge and patience during the initial setup was superb. Several weeks after our initial setup our main server crashed. Dobson Technologies went over and above the call of duty to help us rebuild what was literally lost from our end.
The time spent was intense and went past their normal work hours. The calls and the monitoring of our account after the fact was very comforting to us. We highly recommend Dobson Technologies for any and all of your needs.”
– The grateful team at Deer Creek Dental
Our Firm was founded in 1979 with three lawyers. In 2005, we have grown to a staff of 34 lawyers, 32 administrative staff, and an active load of 6000 cases.
In our industry, any down time could result in permanent and irreversible loss to our clients. It would seriously damage our reputation and compromise our ability to provide our customary level of outstanding legal service.
Before we contracted with Dobson Technologies, we used traditional daily tape backup systems and off-site storage. That storage process required significant man-hours and physical controls, leaving us with considerable exposure to loss of data through human handling error.
Since we’ve entrusted our data to Dobson Technologies, all our storage needs are handled automatically. Our data is secured at an offsite vault with easy recovery capabilities. We are now able to keep our professional focus on efficiency and delivery of quality legal services without the worry of preserving valuable litigation databases.”

CORY’S AUDIO VISUAL SERVICES, LLC
Dobson Managed IT Services for Cory’s Audio Visual Services
Cory’s Audio Visual Services is a 3rd generation Oklahoma City business founded in 1953 by Joseph F. Cory. It provides audio and visual services through 3 separate divisions – live events, hospitality and design/build. The divisions serve a wide variety of AV needs, including special events, hotels and convention centers, churches, schools and corporate clients. The company has 30 full-time employees, 6 part-time and about 30 temporary employees. Cory’s operations are networked by a computer server and 39 desktop computers. Current owners are Brad Poarch, CEO, and John Cory, COO, cousins and descendants of the founder.
Cory’s Audio Visual Services is headquartered in Oklahoma City with a satellite location in Tulsa. Having remote IT support from a Tulsa-based company made on-site support a challenge. Although they had a handful of employees with some IT knowledge, their needs had outgrown their resources. IT issues took time away from these employees to focus on their core jobs. Cory’s AV desired a local company with scalable resources to be the strategic, consultative partner they needed.
“Technology is very important to our business. Each of our divisions operates independently and each has different software requirements. The issue was that we did not have good ways to consolidate all of our data in one place. We tried several methods and came up short. Our network infrastructure was very old and had been hodgepodged together by several of our employees. It became a limiting factor as we kept growing. That’s when we started looking for a partner that could help support our internal infrastructures.” – Brad Poarch, CEO, Cory’s AV.
The Dobson Solution
Dobson helped Cory’s AV look at the big picture and offered a strategic approach to managing their IT needs. They have helped Cory’s AV with their network by upgrading their server from a platform that would soon no longer be supported. Dobson has created efficiencies by providing the technical resources they need so their employees can focus on their core job functions. In addition, Dobson provides vendor-neutral guidance on equipment purchases that work in Cory’s AV technical environment.
“If there’s ever an issue, no one here has to deal with it. Previously, when someone had an issue they would have to locate the person who could fix it. Many times that person would be on a jobsite for the next several days and we would have to consider pulling that person off the site to come and fix it. Now, we call Dobson when we have an issue, and they fix it. It’s wonderful.” – Brad Poarch, CEO.
Outcomes for Cory’s AV
“Dobson has relieved headaches. One of the main reasons we chose Dobson was because their values and processes very closely mirror our own. We thought ‘we want to do business with a company like that.’ They weren’t the cheapest option, but we aren’t either. They provide great value in the service they provide which is worth paying for. They are a true partner and using their expertise has been very good for our organization.” – Brad Poarch, CEO.
Perspective from Cory’s Audio Visual CEO, Brad Poarch
“When we were shopping for an IT partner, we looked at several different companies. One of the big selling points that Dobson has compared to the others was that anyone in our company could reach out to them with a problem. For instance, with the other companies, if Tom had a problem with his computer, he had to talk to that one point of contact who reached out to the IT company to get it fixed. Dobson took out that middleman and said ‘we want everyone to be able to reach out to us anytime they have a problem.’ Having our employees contact Dobson directly takes out that extra step and speeds up the process. It has really been nice. With every issue we have, someone gets back in touch with us within an hour or two to solve the problem.”
Fiber to Business Implemented for Choctaw Casino by Dobson Technologies
Choctaw Casinos’ mission is to create an extraordinary experience for each guest, provide a fun and fulfilling environment for their associates, and add value to the Choctaw Nation and communities. Choctaw Casinos’ is located in Southeastern Oklahoma, operating 8 casinos and 11 Travel Plaza casino too’s. Locations include Durant, Grant, Pocola, McAlester, Stringtown, Stigler, Broken Bow, Idabel, Atoka, Wilburton, Poteau, and coming soon Antlers and Heavener.
The Choctaw Casinos IT Team was tasked with building a data network that connected all of their casinos to their headquarters in Durant, Oklahoma. At the time, they were committed to a reasonably priced, high-bandwidth solution provider. While building the network they found that their current provider could not provide connectivity or was unreasonably expensive. When Choctaw Casinos of Oklahoma built a casino in Wilburton, a small town in eastern Oklahoma, they discovered that no connection was available. They were determined to find an alternative.
“All of our properties are together on one happy network. But in order to do that you have to have connectivity and communications.” — Mike Essig, Ph.D., Senior Director of IT for Choctaw Casinos. “
The Dobson Solution
When Choctaw Casinos found Dobson Technologies, they said ‘we need you guys,’ and Dobson said ‘we’ve got your solution.’
“That’s exactly what they have done. There wasn’t anything around our Wilburton location, and by pure luck we found Dobson. This was before I started working as our infrastructure manager, but my understanding is Dobson put the backbone in just to meet our needs, which I think is pretty impressive. Their bandwidth is extraordinary. Oklahoma is very spread out, so if you need a connection between Point A and Point B it is often very difficult to find a provider to do so. To say that Dobson has been really flexible in getting connectivity to our locations would be an understatement. Dobson has turned out to be an extraordinary partner.” – Jeremy Smith, IT Infrastructure Manager.
Outcomes for Choctaw Casinos
Choctaw Casinos has been using Dobson for almost two years. Dobson provides fiber-to-the-business for six of the Choctaw Casinos’ locations including Durant, McAlester, Stringtown, Wilburton, Pocola and Atoka.
“We found that Dobson really does have us covered. They’ve been very responsive. We had a problem a couple of weeks back where something got disconnected. The wrong information was sent, and Dobson spent a good day trying to understand what happened, only to discover it wasn’t on their side anyway. They really work to make sure that if there is a problem in the connectivity, it is quickly restored.”
Perspective from Mike Essig, Ph.D., Senior Director of Information Technology
“I would encourage other businesses needing connectivity to see what Dobson has to offer. They have provided good customer service and made it work for us in areas where we thought ‘there is no way Dobson can get a connection out there’. “
“Their pricing is very competitive. For example, we have a 100 MB pipe, and the price we are paying is less than I was paying in Las Vegas, which is surprising because pricing I’ve seen from other vendors for the same throughput is double or triple what Dobson has provided. The price is definitely what I would consider favorable.”
Dobson Technologies’ Managed IT Services Saves McIntyre, Law PC from Costly Downtime
McIntyre Law, PC is an Oklahoma City-based personal injury firm with a national presence. The firm employs other attorneys, legal assistants and office administrators. The staff relies heavily on technology to communicate with clients and other legal firms throughout the nation. Noble McIntyre is the founding partner and principal of McIntyre Law, PC.
When McIntyre Law encountered an IT issue that caused the entire office to experience downtime, the firm decided to call their current backup provider, Dobson Technologies, for help. Although Dobson is not a break/fix IT provider, they agreed to help the team at McIntyre Law out as a one-time project. When another major problem occurred again, the firm knew they needed Dobson’s Managed IT services on a full-time basis instead of relying on a non-IT employee for technical issues. “We used to experience the same issues that everyone else is affected by. When things go wrong on your computer or Outlook freezes up or you need to upgrade equipment…this is not what I do; I practice law. I used to rely on one of my legal assistants for technical issues — anything that would break she would try to figure out what to do. It was a nightmare and not a workable solution. And downtime costs me money.”
THE DOBSON SOLUTION
Dobson’s IT professionals took over management responsibilities of the McIntyre Law network, providing monitoring and fast response time in case of problems with the firms’ computers, servers and other network equipment.
OUTCOMES FOR MCINTYRE LAW, PC
Downtime is no longer an issue for McIntyre Law since the Dobson team has started managing their IT operations. Updates and upgrades are being proactively monitored and taken care of. The legal assistant is not spending valuable time trying to solve non-job related technical issues. And if issues do arise, the Dobson team is quick to respond and find a solution.
PERSPECTIVE FROM MCINTYRE LAW, PC FOUNDING PARTNER, NOBLE MCINTYRE
“Dobson manages everything. If we have any problems at all we just shoot them an email, and they get online remotely from wherever they are or come on site to fix the problem. They also continually audit my computers and upgrade everything every 18 months or so. They make sure that anything that needs to be fixed or any programs we need to get, just anything to do with my server or computers, is taken care of. If we have a problem they respond almost immediately.” “The guys are very responsive. They fix our problems quickly and they are very friendly. I like them. I wouldn’t be with them if I didn’t.”
24/7 access to Dobson Technologies’ Team of IT Experts Frees Up Time for Total Medical’s Office Manager from Dealing with IT Issues
Total Medical is an Oklahoma City-based medical staffing company with satellite locations in Tulsa and Lawton. They provide temporary and full-time employment opportunities to licensed medical professionals at hospitals, surgical centers, medical clinics, nursing homes, assisted living centers, home health and hospice agencies. They employ approximately 325 people mostly on a temporary basis. Mike O’Keefe is CEO.
Before Dobson Technologies began providing managed IT services for Total Medical, the staffing company attempted to solve on-going technology issues with a part-time IT professional who was not on site during working hours. Operating an on-site file server also presented issues as employees attempted to log in from remote locations.
“Predominantly, the biggest issue was having a part-time, after-hours IT person. We didn’t have the ability to respond to employees in a timely manner. And connectivity issues are big ones for us in terms of our server, our log-ins, and creating new log-ins and passwords.” — Mike O’Keefe, Total Medical CEO.
THE DOBSON SOLUTION
Dobson provides a team of full-time IT experts who can log-in remotely to the Total Medical network and quickly resolve issues that come up at any time of the day, 24/7. In addition, Dobson has added cloud backup for the Total Medical server.
OUTCOMES FOR TOTAL MEDICAL
Around-the-clock access to Dobson’s team of IT professionals has freed Total Medical’s office manager from having to deal with ongoing IT issues. And the off-site backup has meant that files can quickly be restored if the company’s server goes down for any reason.
PERSPECTIVE FROM TOTAL MEDICAL CEO, MIKE O’KEEFE
“The biggest outcome is having an HR/office manager who’s gone from spending 8 to 12 hours a week on IT issues down to 1 to 3 hours. It’s significantly reduced the amount of time she’s spending chasing down technical issues. We operate 24/7, so if someone had a connectivity issue on nights or weekends, they would have to call our office manager. Now they call Dobson.”
“Our employees see that we upgraded our system and made an investment in, them, really. Before it was a lot of down time for them, and now there is less down time and less aggravation. They don’t see it as much as an upgrade in our technology as an upgrade on the service side. When they call someone, they are calling someone who is an IT expert as opposed to an HR manager who says ‘let me get someone on the phone.”
“We had a virus come through back in the spring. It took us down for a day, but if that happened and we didn’t have Dobson, we would have been down for two or three days if not more.”
“From a management standpoint, Dobson’s customer service is first class. Their management team is determined to resolve any issue we bring to them and they are committed to fixing it in a timely manner. Dobson is good on their follow-up. It’s one thing to sell a service and then another to back it up.”
No More Dropped Calls! Superior Fabrication Switches to Dobson’s Fiber to the Business Solution
Superior Fabrication is an Elk City manufacturer of oil-field equipment with satellite locations in Canadian, Texas and Ada, Oklahoma. It also has two other manufacturing locations in Elk City in addition to its corporate headquarters. Superior employs more than 400 people system-wide and approximately 200 in Elk City.
Before switching to Dobson’s fiber-to-the-business during the summer of 2014, Superior was operating their business on a DSL connection that supported their Internet and phone service. Dropped calls were frequent, along with static that hindered voice communications, which made sales calls and connecting with satellite locations challenging.
“As a manufacturing business, we were experiencing so many dropped calls, which was unacceptable. I was getting calls all the time about ‘hey, I was on a sales call and it dropped.’ ” – Ken Bearden, IT manager.
The Dobson Solution
Dobson provided a direct fiber link to Superior’s three Elk City locations, and the company anticipates another fiber connection to its Ada plant in the not-too-distant future. The Canadian, Texas, plant is in an area outside of Dobson’s fiber reach.
Outcomes for Superior Fabrication
Since switching over to Dobson’s fiber-to-the business, Superior Fabrication has had no issues with static on the phone lines or with dropped calls. The company’s Internet connection has also improved dramatically.
Perspective from Superior Fabrications IT Manager, Ken Bearden
“Probably the biggest thing is that Dobson’s fiber has eliminated our phone issues. I haven’t had any issues. The Internet side of it? Here in town it is night and day. It runs better than we could have ever imagined. It makes my job easier and I’m not just saying that.”
“I’ve worked with one of Dobson’s engineers since I was at my previous job as IT Director with a school here in Western Oklahoma. I’ve got his personal cell phone number, and he’s always told me that ‘if you have any problems, call me.’ I don’t think there are many companies that would say ‘here is my cell phone number, call me if you have issues.’ But as I said before, I don’t call. We don’t have any problems.
“A company came in here the other day, about a month after we switched to Dobson, and said ‘hey, I heard you guys switched. We’re with Verizon right now. What are you experiencing with Dobson?’ I had no hesitation saying ‘I don’t know how much you are paying now, but if I was going to switch this is who I would move with.”
“I probably sound like a commercial for these guys, but I would recommend Dobson to anyone, and I don’t hesitate on that at all. We agreed to a 2-year contract with them, and I can say with 100 percent confidence that we would renew again.”
NATIONAL COWBOY AND WESTERN HERITAGE MUSEUM
National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum Enjoys Unique Relationship with Dobson Technologies
The National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City is America’s premier institution of Western history, art and culture. It is also one of Dobson Technologies’ premier clients.
Founded in 1955, the non-profit museum in Oklahoma City collects, preserves, and exhibits an internationally-renowned collection of Western art and artifacts while sponsoring dynamic educational programs and groundbreaking scholarly research to stimulate interest in the enduring legacy of our American West. More than 10 million visitors from around the world have sought out this unique museum to gain better understanding of the West: a region and a history that permeates our national culture.
The non-profit museum shares the same business operations concerns as for-profit entities, according to Susan Adams, Assistant Director of Development for Corporations and Foundations. “We backup an enormous amount of data which includes normal business functions such as financial records, spreadsheets, correspondence and calendars. However, we also have some unique documents, such as inventory of our collections, over 100,000 archive images, membership information and library catalogs.”
According to IT Director, Sharon Kasper, it became evident that the museum’s increasing number of documents required more reliable backup. The sheer volume of data moving through the museum’s network had presented an enormous concern from the perspective of data protection. “One server dedicated to our research center contains more than 35,000 records,” said Sharon. Another server contains a database of more than 320,000 records. “We’d be devastated if we didn’t have the data available to us at all times,” she said.
The museum’s previous method of tape back-up and “offsite storage” (Sharon’s home) proved to be costly, cumbersome, and unreliable. “Tape back-ups were scheduled daily on our servers,” said Sharon, ”but maintaining these back-ups easily consumed our IT department’s valuable time.” Susan concurred. “When we looked at the cost of materials, loss of productivity, and the impact to operations due to the slow response of the system, we knew a better solution was required,” she said. Constant troubleshooting and tapes aborting presented further headaches.
“Because of the stature of this national organization, with visitors from over 50 countries in our facility on any given day, the museum needed a back-up and retention system that was commensurate with the scope of our institution,” Susan said. “When we initially started looking for partners, we looked at Dobson Technologies. They presented solutions that would enable us to eliminate tape back-up and take advantage of the technology they offered,” she said. “After touring Dobson Technologies state-of the-art facility, we were certain that our data would be secure and in the hands of experts,” she said.
Dobson Technologies’ facility is equipped with battery back-ups, generators, 24-7 monitoring, and climate controlled data centers, important to an organization that understands the importance and complexities of a controlled climate for priceless art collections and archives. The data redundancy provided by Dobson Technologies, at a facility 120 miles from Oklahoma City, adds increased confidence and security of data.
“Should our own facility be devastated by data loss through disaster, theft, or system crash, it would not be possible to continue daily operations without severe interruption,” said Susan. “Dobson Technologies’ data redundancy at a secondary location was huge for us,” she said. “We have backed-up data in excess of 1 terabyte, and are increasing that by gigabytes on a monthly basis. Data protection is critical.”
A UNIQUE RELATIONSHIP
The museum and Dobson Technologies enjoy a mutually respected ongoing partnership. The museum is a very important client for Dobson Technologies, as well as one of its larger back-up clients, due to the large volume of images from archives and publications that flow through the T-1 bandwidth on a daily basis. Despite the relatively small bandwidth, Dobson Technologies is able to perform their large daily backups in the allotted time every night.
The museum was initially backing up their Novell GroupWise e-mails prior to converting to MS Exchange. However, Dobson Technologies’ robust support of operating systems, databases and applications allowed the museum to enjoy a seamless transition whenever the conversion took place. Their large volume of e-mails makes the museum a very large Exchange 2007 client. They also utilize some of Dobson Technologies’ rich features like automated retention schemes, and message level retrieval (MLR). As well as protecting their e-mail, Dobson Technologies protects a vast array of different data. In doing so, Dobson Technologies has implemented a customized strategy for dealing with them utilizing all three tiers of storage to protect and manage the museum’s data. Based on file type and access data, data moves automatically and efficiently from the Online Tier to the Nearline Tier, and then eventually onto the Offline Tier.
The relationship is so positive; the museum has been a beta-testing site for Dobson Technologies on numerous occasions, a testament to a great business relationship.
“Our facility holds an incredible amount of valuable historical documents,” said Sharon. “It was important that we chose a service provider we could trust. We have positive experiences with the people at Dobson Technologies, and they provide a great service for us,” she said. “They anticipate situations and take steps to resolve them before they translate into anything that is noticeable to our operations. In my experience, that’s what provides superior delivery and service to a customer,” she said.
“Some organizations make it a point to tell you about their customer service and how good it is. With Dobson Technologies, it is simply evident.”

Case Study Highlights
- U.S.-based company that offers offshore IT, programming, development and design services that require access to a robust data center.
- Building an in-house data center was cost-prohibitive and slow, with too much downtime required for updates.
- Because programmers and service center are in Pakistan, data flow must be continuous, nimble & fast.
- Needed redundancies, immediate ROI, and no equipment headaches.
Allshore Global Resources
Allshore Global Resources offers the best of both the offshore and onshore worlds: clients have
access to an affordable, full-time, English-fluent IT expert who is dedicated to their needs, while
Oklahoma-based Allshore oversees projects, HR, and all financial and legal aspects. Allshore
partnered with Dobson Technologies in 2011.
The Bottom Line
Using Dobson Technologies considerably speeds up Allshore’s growth potential, allowing them
to hit the market running and giving them scalability that they can pass onto customers.
Shoring Up with Power and Ease
Allshore Global Resources is a tech service company that needed a robust data center to meet
its growing needs. But physical servers are expensive, clunky, and can be slow. A failure at a
physical data center requires hardware, delivery waits, and taking systems offline. Allshore’s
business relies on stable, continuous connectivity and immediacy, and because Allshore assures
seamless productivity and connectivity between clients in the U.S. and programmers in Pakistan,
there is no tolerance for protracted issues, failures or long downtimes. Redundancy must be built
into the backup process, without burdening the system.
Covered To the Core
The company chose Dobson Technologies over either a physical data center or virtual service-
providers like Amazon because Dobson Technologies allows:
- Immediate ROI: Allshore could hit the ground running, without having to spend $70K-80K upgrading their facility, only to spend it again in 3-5 years replacing equipment.
- “Virtual” Ease: Seamless IaaS/virtual data centers mean no equipment to replace or worry about.
- Scalability and Limitless Growth: If more memory, processing power, bandwidth, etc., is needed, Dobson Technologies provides it immediately.
- Peace of mind: Allshore can spend its energy on clients, not equipment. Everything is backed up by Dobson Technologies.
- Superior Value: The cost efficiency of a virtual service center means customers get double the programming. Though Dobson Technologies wasn’t Allshore’s cheapest option, they undoubtedly provided the most value
“It’s given us peace of mind. Everything is backed up, secure and redundant.” – Bryan Rudd, COO, Allshore Global Resources, LLC
Peace of Mind
- Thorough coverage that eliminates hardware headaches
- Redundancies and security
Ease Of Installation and Use
- Seamless connectivity, data backup and service for a U.S. company with employees in Pakistan and a global client base
- Smooth installation, no major hiccups
Scalability and Growth
- RAM, storage, processing speed & other services can be upgraded in minutes. That’s perfect for Allshore’s clients, who sometimes need more power on the fly.
- As Allshore grows, so can its centers, all without having to build physical processors.
- No maintenance or repair headaches: a quick phone call can resolve any issues.
- Downtime is negligible, a bonus for clients who demand immediacy.
- Dobson Technologies delivers speed, power and more speed.
Growth Without Limits
Initially, Allshore Global Resources wanted to build its own data center. But that option
came bundled with the very real and expensive difficulties of connectivity issues, repairing/
maintaining hardware and time-to-build. That would cost them not only significant overhead but
also time and energy away from Allshore’s core competency and business development efforts.
After comparing Dobson Technologies to other service providers such as Amazon, Allshore
realized that letting Dobson Technologies virtualize their data center would allow near limitless
growth and scalability. Not only would they not have to worry about hardware, failures and
burning irreplaceable money on building a physical center, they could rest assured that adding
storage, servers and capacity would only require five-minutes of downtime as opposed to five-
Thanks to Dobson Technologies, as Allshore grows, so will its data capacity. This is a key
advantage, one the company can pass along to clients when projects require resources to be
increased on the fly.
Global is Local
Allshore is based in Norman, Oklahoma, about 30 minutes from Oklahoma City. U.S.-based
personnel are programmers that do requirements analyses for clients, who then set up each
client with a dedicated developer in Pakistan. This developer speaks flawless English and is in
constant contact with the clients. And the key to maintaining happy clients is constant, reliable
connectivity. Dobson Technologies not only keeps Allshore’s data secure and redundant, its
VMware technology and IaaS (virtualized data center) create better connectivity than a physical
hub. Dobson Technologies puts the whole world just seconds away.
“Overall, it’s been a fantastic experience with Dobson Technologies.” – Bryan Rudd
Dobson Technologies Has You Covered
For U.S.-based Allshore Global Resources, Dobson Technologies created a global virtual
data center so Allshore can concentrate on client solutions, not hardware problems. Dobson
Technologies’ suite of cloud and managed service products feature personal service from
certified professionals that help businesses reduce costs, minimize risks, increase scalability and
ensure data availability 24/7.
