INTERVISION TRANSFORMS DATACENTER FOR FINANCIAL TECHNOLOGY COMPANY’S HIGH CUSTOMER DEMAND
About the Company
The client is a leading financial technology company for the mortgage industry.
The Vision and Challenge
InterVision has partnered with this client on significant datacenter initiatives before that have allowed the company to meet the growing demand for its online mortgage software and solutions. We originally helped the client to deploy a FlexPod datacenter stack to power their corporate IT. InterVision’s engineers proved their capabilities by making the FlexPod operational in less than a week. As a result, InterVision was invited to update the datacenter infrastructure that powered the company’s customer-facing applications.
- Datacenter was over-provisioned and underperforming
- Frequent outages impacted SLA commitments
- Unable to scale to meet fast-growing demand for its solutions and services
InterVision conducted detailed discovery and interviewed their IT staff to understand their business needs and develop a robust design to serve as a foundation for their infrastructure and private cloud initiatives. The consolidated and highly-virtualized IT infrastructure features solutions from Cisco, NetApp, and VMware. These best-in-class IT solutions were selected because they simplified operations and delivered superior application performance. As part a FlexPod reference architecture, the datacenter stack is scalable across network, storage, and compute tiers.
