A publicly traded SaaS firm experiencing hyper growth came to us with a storage performance, scale, and services problem.
While we knew that speed was crucial, we also knew that until we were familiar with our client’s full environment, we wouldn’t be able to fully assist. We proposed a full assessment into our client’s five globally located data centers. Doing so enabled us to find a solution that would increase their performance by 5X, scale out with zero downtime as capacity increases, and was so easy to maintain that it required virtually no servicing after the initial install. Another major benefit of our solution was that we decreased the physical footprint of our client’s data centers by 300%, allowing them to add two years to their Equinix contract without increasing spend.
While we could have installed the typical technology mix that our client was being pitched by every firm in town, we knew that they needed architecture that could grow with them. By working with Bridge IT, their production application now runs faster with zero downtime, their data is protected with encryption, they saved data center space, and their engineering services overhead decreased down to nearly nothing.
Bridge IT Consulting also provided the white glove data migration services moving data onto the new data storage platform and off the old data storage platform. This is a very carefully planned process with protecting our clients data our highest priority with roll back plans ready to go every step of the way.
