This 50-person hedge fund had an aging, owned storage and server infrastructure in its New York City office, with owned Disaster Recovery (DR) infrastructure installed in rented collocation space approximately 50 miles away. The fund’s owned infrastructure and end-user help desk support were being delivered by another MSP and DR testing was cumbersome and incomplete.
CDI delivered a fully managed, cloud-based solution leveraging multiple, geographically diverse data centers. The solution consisted of managed and hosted Infrastructure as a Service and Desktop as a Service. Continuous replication between CDI data centers provided a Recovery Point Objective (RPO) in less than 10 seconds. Presently, this solution is fully managed and includes 7×24 remote and onsite resources to support the infrastructure, applications and end-users.
This hedge fund can now focus on growing its investment portfolio, as opposed to managing its infrastructure and users, while benefiting from a favorable Total Cost Of Ownership (TCO).
