A data center upgrade cuts costs, improves network speed and functionality and enables growth.
COMPANY: Technology-powered financial services firm that has provided small businesses with access to over $5.5 billion in capital.
PROJECT: Data Center and Networking
The company’s aging data centers could not support its expanding enterprise applications and business growth.
iVision upgraded the company’s two data centers with FlexPod technology: Cisco Nexus, Cisco UCS, NetApp and VMware vSphere with VMware Site Recovery Manager (SRM). The infrastructure upgrade also transferred data from physical servers to virtual ones.
The company reduced both power usage and space requirements for its data centers, generating substantial savings. It gained speed and functionality, including shorter backup times and more reliable network support of key business applications. Plus, the modernized data center environment was built to scale up as the company’s business grows.
