St. James’s Place
Case study available soon(107k)
St. James’s Place wanted to take advantage of emerging technologies with an on demand computing model, with reduced cost relative to a traditional server – based model. Additionally the business wanted to improve its Recovery Time Objective in the event of a disaster associated with the loss of individual applications or the entire data centre.
Attenda has implemented a virtualised IT infrastructure, using VMware, incorporating the corporate database and several legacy applications. It has enabled St. James’s Place to split application and database server on the same physical machine and allocate resources according to demand. The solution has increased flexibility and availability with the option to move virtual servers across a pool of machines to better leverage the available resource. The solution has also ensured that the business continuity objectives can be met.
- Outsourced management of entire infrastructure
- Full FSA compliant DR solution
- Improved speed to market with reduced cost
- Confidence in 24 x 7 support and access to technology skills on demand
- 5 year fixed cost for IT infrastructure operation
"We had no desire to operate and manage this technology platform in-house and so we looked for a specialist provider who would be responsive, flexible and aligned to our business objectives and culture."
