The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS), the charity that organises the Chelsea Flower Show, has appointed Iomart to handle its hybrid hosting.

The RHS made the appointment to deal with its growing global membership and its staff.

Robert Reilly, head of IT for the RHS, said: “We are a registered charity and rely on subscriptions, donations and sponsorship to fund our work, so how we deliver value back is hugely important. It was no longer economical for us to be using Vincent Square for our server hosting so we needed a new and efficient way of operating and managing our IT.

“There were three specific things we needed to achieve with the move to Iomart’ s data centre – UPS, connectivity and a high level of security.”

The 200-year-old RHS has over 400,000 members and is responsible for a series of world-class horticultural shows including the Chelsea Flower Show, which celebrates its centenary this week.
