Dell has designed and installed a virtualised end-to-end computing environment for wealth management software company BlueSun.
A provider of integrated front and back-office support for the life insurance and mutual fund industry, BlueSun will benefit from a range of Dell server, storage and networking technologies.
The new virtualised infrastructure consolidates data previously held at three separate managed facilities into a single colocation centre, simplifying IT system management and improving customer service for the company, which is based in Ontario, Canada.
“We first looked at new managed service partners and cloud-based solutions, but soon realised that the most effective option was to consolidate our three locations into a single colocation centre,” explained John Peart, vice president of product development, BlueSun. “Dell was able to deploy a fully end-to-end solution that could satisfy the all requirements of our Tier 1 clients with regards to data segregation, security, availability, management reporting and costs, as well as meeting our own requirements regarding scalability, simplified system management, business continuity and profitability.”
The new infrastructure solution includes three Dell PowerEdge R720 rack servers with Intel Xeon processors, which runs on the Microsoft Windows Server 2012 operating system. The solution also includes Dell PowerVault storage arrays and Dell Networking 8024 10Gb Ethernet switches with two virtual LANs.
“BlueSun provides a great example of the improved performance a growing business can achieve through a radical redesign of its IT infrastructure,” said David Miketinac, vice president and general manager, commercial sales, Dell Canada. “We’re thrilled to help BlueSun achieve its operational and financial goals and look forward to continuing our relationship as they grow their business.”
