Financial services firm turning to a private cloud

Michigan firm decides that public cloud-based systems aren't enterprise-ready

The financial services firm's move to a private cloud is a result of years of work with virtualization technologies, a move to collocation facility, and a hardware refresh. He described that new system as a hybrid approach.

"Ideally, a hybrid solution that can scale to high demand, that's secure, it's reliably delivered, and can be seamlessly provided by multiple hosters, allowing customers to utilize and switch among the providers," said Lass. "This rigidity we fee reinforces our choice of on- premise hosting," he said.
