SANlogics’ Flexibility and Performance Enables Top Financial Services Organizations to Consolidate Data Centers On-Time and On-Budget Resulting in Dramatic Cost Savings
Jersey City, N.J. — July 28, 2010 — SANpulse Technologies, Inc. today announced that multiple Global 250 financial services firms have dramatically reduced data center costs by accelerating consolidation projects and optimizing resources using SANlogics™. SANlogics has delivered the flexibility and performance financial services organizations require to simplify and automate data migration processes so that they can transform and consolidate data center properties and reduce hardware, floor space and power costs.
“Data migrations and consolidations have traditionally been exceptionally expensive, time consuming and difficult. Typically, these projects have been manually intensive, error prone and plagued with delays,” said Bob Laliberte, senior analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group. “However, SANpulse developed technology combined with specialized resources and processes to deliver migration services proven to reduce time, risk and cost. Given the recent mergers, acquisitions and subsequent data center consolidation efforts in the financial services industry, the SANpulse solution has provided significant value to a number of these institutions.”
For one Fortune 100 financial services firm, SANpulse migrated and transformed 257 hosts and 104TB spanning six data centers in just two weekend migration windows. The resulting data center consolidation expedited the adoption of new technologies which resulted in double digit operational efficiencies without any additional delivery resources. Because of the migration efficiency and speed, this financial services organization was able to exit data centers on time, avoiding $1.5 million in lease penalties. As a result, this firm also achieved significant consolidation cost savings through the reduction of both floor space and power.
Financial services organizations using SANlogics see the following advantages:
Reduced Project Costs – SANlogics automates the migration process resulting in a minimal number of resources required for data migration initiatives, while maximizing the ROI on existing investments through the optimization of installed storage infrastructure. The ability to provide an in-depth comprehensive analysis of the entire infrastructure results in accurate planning and mitigation of potential risks in the migration process.
Reduced Project Timeline – With preparation that includes in-depth data aggregation, process automation and self-generating actionable outputs, SANlogics expedites data migration and moves over five times more data during each migration when compared to traditional methods. With SANlogics, SANpulse financial services clients have experienced significant timeline reductions in all phases of migration: planning phases have been reduced by over 65%; implementation phases have been reduced by over 85%; and execution phases have been reduced by over 50%. This reduction in time results in greater utilization of a finite hardware lifecycle.
Minimized Risk Factors and Human Errors – SANlogics dramatically reduces the risk of human error with its automated outputs, instant application of system changes according to real-time business requirements, and rapid identification of road blocks and non-disruptive remedies.
Ensured Business Efficiencies, Organization-Wide – Through enterprise-wide standardization, turnkey readiness and compliance with standards, SANpulse allows financial services organizations to align independent business units in operational synergy during SAN migration and optimization projects.
Increased ROI on Current Storage Hardware – By identifying misconfigured storage, SANlogics enables financial services firms to more efficiently use storage space on existing arrays, thereby reducing additional capital expenditure.
“SANpulse continues its successful track record in the financial services vertical, ensuring on-time and on-budget transformation of storage infrastructures of some of the largest global firms in the industry,” said SANpulse CEO Peter Mehta. “We understand the importance and impact that every second has in the global financial arena. Our ability to automate processes in a data migration life cycle assures customers of mitigating outages while transforming their infrastructure and ensuring project completion in a timely manner.”
