WHO WE HELP
For over 25 years, Siloam Mission has been a connecting point between the compassionate and Winnipeg’s less fortunate. Offering meals, shelter, health care, clothing, employment training, and transition services, Siloam Mission alleviates hardships and provides opportunities for change for those affected by homelessness.
With a full-time staff of 62, Siloam Mission relies heavily on their network infrastructure. From volunteer coordination and donor processing to specialized software in the on-site Saul Sair Health Centre, technology plays a key role in the delivery of Siloam’s services. Siloam’s production environment runs on 8 virtual servers on a VMware platform. Network VLANs are used to segregate traffic. With on-site lodging and shelter staff, Siloam’s 24/7 operations require the availability of technical support around-the-clock.
Siloam recently completed implementation of a Disaster Recovery solution, replicating full images of their production servers to 365’s Data Centre. Migration of their Email services to Microsoft Exchange 2013 is underway. With 365Care+ support, the staff at Siloam Mission have direct access to an IT support team, 24/7/365. The result? More time devoted to meeting the needs of our community’s less fortunate.
