A leading retail stock brokerage with a presence in over 1,700 locations deploy ed virtualization with the help of Swan Solutions, a leading provider of end-to-end information technology solutions. This implementation helps the firm rid 20 racks from their premises, which resulted in cost savings of over Rs 1 crore annually including maintenance cost, electricity bills and real estate. The stock brokerage firm provides customers with access to equities, derivatives, currency, IPOs, mutual funds, bonds and corporate FDs.
Previously, the running cost of the racks was high with the physical servers. Faced with the spiraling cost of running the servers, they decided to turn to virtualization. The firm wanted to solve its issues without disturbing the continuity of the business and got in touch with Swan Solutions. They were the preferred vendor because of their capability to set up the whole infrastructure and run the virtual environment in 7 days.
Swan Solutions replaced its customer’s physical servers by installing and configuring HP BladeSystem c7000 enclosure with 16 HP Blade Swan Solutions also installed HP Virtual Connect, a unique networking technology to add, replace and recover server blades on the fly. It lets users access multiple VLANs through one cable. In addition, they deployed VMware’s Hypervisor 5.5 update 1. Instead of running just one application, VMware can run multiple applications on one server without any issues around operating systems.
