Financial Firm Transforms IT Infrastructure With EMC To Enable Business Growth

With the help of EMC Premier Velocity Solution Provider eGroup, Williams & Fudge selected EMC VNX unified storage to transform its business. VNX has enabled the firm to deliver new IT services, such as the launch of a new business unit, to its internal clients. VNX provides Williams & Fudge with a FLASH 1 st automated tiering strategy that leverages the EMC FAST™ Suite, along with Flash and high-capacity disk drives. VNX supports Williams & Fudge's Microsoft SharePoint, SQL Server, VMware Zimbra email and custom-built Linux applications.

Williams & Fudge has virtualized 100% of its server infrastructure with VMware vSphere and has virtualized 260 desktops using VMware View. Williams & Fudge relies on VMware vStorage API for Array Integration (VAAI) and EMC VSI plug-ins for vCenter to streamline integration between VNX and VMware, enabling faster provisioning and copying of virtual machines, among other tasks.

For disaster recovery, Williams & Fudge uses EMC RecoverPoint continuous data protection and VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager (SRM) to replicate its virtualized infrastructures across two data centers located 200 miles apart.

Customer Quotes:

Phillip Reynolds, Data Center Director, Williams & Fudge

"Our company has more than doubled in size to 360 employees while our lean IT staff of three employees has remained the same—something that wouldn't have been possible without EMC and VMware technology. As our company continues to grow—even two- or three-fold—we're very comfortable that EMC and VMware technology will enable our data center to scale with the business."

"We took a very hard look at another storage vendor but determined it wasn't going to deliver the performance we needed for our intensive SharePoint and SQL Server workloads and, in particular, our virtual desktop workload. Plus, it didn't have the streamlined integration with VMware that makes managing our environment so easy.  EMC was the clear choice for us and we are extremely happy with how EMC has performed."
