California Bank Enhances Customer Experience and Compliance with HYCU and Nutanix
Bank of Stockton relies on IT infrastructure to support all of its operations and 19 branches, spanning nine counties in Northern California. With Asset size of 3.1B, its IT Infrastructure must be secure, reliable, available, and fast. To deliver the unique, personalized experience its customers have come to expect, the Bank must not only deliver dependable, nonstop service, but meet audit and regulatory compliance requirements as well.
“Our legacy computing servers were approaching end of life, and they were also difficult to manage,” said Vincent Lo, VP of IT, Bank of Stockton. “It was a perfect time to migrate out of our storage array as well. Moving to an HCI was an attractive option, because it would give us a single vendor. And, moving to a tightly integrated backup would help us address our backup windows, which were taking longer as the volume of data we needed to manage and protect increased.”
The organization chose HYCU for Nutanix to help ensure it could meet its backup window time frames and recovery objectives for its critical data.
“With Nutanix and HYCU, life is good. We no longer have to worry about the issues that long plagued us. I have been in IT long enough to know that users call IT when things are running slow or offline. With Nutanix and HYCU in place, things are running nice and quiet. The Nutanix and HYCU systems do not require much attention. Their performance, capability and simplicity are absolutely awesome!” said Lo.
Simplicity - Demanding, compute-intensive processes such as the compliance server database are now running at nearly twice the speed of the Bank’s legacy equipment.
Speed – Per Lo, “The Bank went from backups that were taking several days to hours once we had HYCU up and running. HYCU is doing everything I hoped it would do. The simplicity, easy-of-use and efficiency are absolutely awesome.”
Improved Security and Compliance - To further safeguard the reliability and integrity of its data, Bank of Stockton is using HYCU.
