Case Study
South West Financial Services
Number of employees: >20

Project: Needed a scalable infrastructure to replace aging discreet servers that failed often under heavy workload of large finance database.The Direct Attached Storage, (DAS), could not handle the workload, causing the database server to crash on a weekly/daily basis. The application install was using legacy software running on windows 2000, that was extremely difficult to install.

The systems where converted to virtual workloads using custom imaging technology and Virtualization accelerators. The system was then cloned to multiple servers, allowing it to be scaled to support over 9K users.

To support Disaster recovery, the large Database was replicated using Array based replication and MSSQL subscriptions. Vigilant also developed a design to migrate the system from a legacy Java environment to a robust .Net environment with web services, and a flexible DAL.
