I highly recommend Ncell for their high level of expertise in IT Consulting and Professional Services. Ncell has been instrumental in planning, implementing and executing our virtualization strategy, our monitoring systems, as well as analysis and tuning of our databases. Their talented staff has been able to deliver exceptional service, on time, within spec, and at a competitive rate. I have the utmost confidence in their abilities and will continue to use them as our resource for enterprise-wide computing. Ncell’s knowledgeable staff is what sets them apart from the competition.

Ncell’s virtualization solution included workload assessment, architecture and design of a multi-node VMware ESX cluster with shared storage. Multiple systems were migrated from legacy hardware to virtual machines and numerous physical boxes were eliminated. Our licensing, maintenance and power consumption costs were reduced, and we had much better utilization of infrastructure spend. Ncell was very knowledgeable in managing all aspects of the project. They are an excellent partner committed to making sure that our virtualization strategy remains successful. They are our core service provider for virtualization solutions.

Manager of Information Systems

We have found Ncell to be a trusted partner that has helped us provide timely, quality services to our students and staff. On relatively short notice in a time of need, we asked Ncell to augment our staff by helping us complete several longstanding projects. In response, their consultants have delivered quality solutions on time and at a fair price.

Ncell has been a trusted technology partner for several years. They have provided assistance with tough projects like our Center of Excellence computing center, our Identity Management, and now in areas of Banner/Oracle tuning. They have also provided excellent Unix support and worked well with our internal IT staff.

Ncell has truly added the value that we seek in a technology partner. I am most impressed with their in-depth knowledge and how they fit into our complicated system of computers, networks and storage. In the 25 years I have been in this business, I have worked with many resellers, and I can say that none have impressed me as much as Ncell. We’ve had several projects where time was critical and the projects were done on time and under budget, which is a huge value to the University. I have nothing but good things to say about our partnership with Ncell Systems and we look forward to engaging in future projects.

Ncell is different than most technology vendors in that they listen to what we need and understand the complexity of the problem we are trying to address at MnSCU, particularly with large enterprise projects. Their focus on Identity Management, Virtualization, and Intelligent Notification are all in line with the needs of the enterprise as well as the needs being brought forth from our colleges. We know that they are face to face with our CIO’s and College Presidents because we hear from them on a regular basis. We are engaged and will continue to be engaged with them.
