2013 F5 Agility Award Winners
Trace3 is a consultancy and technology solutions provider that specializes in solutions designed to reduce complexity within the IT infrastructure by simplifying data management, maximizing virtualization, and accelerating the network. As an example of Trace3’s work with F5, the company architected a custom infrastructure solution for MINDBODY, a leading cloud-based software provider focused on the health, wellness, and beauty industries.MINDBODY’s business challenge was to replace its existing data center with co-located infrastructure to better support the company’s growth rate of approximately 1,000 new customers per month. Trace3 leveraged F5’s technology partnership with NetApp to provide MINDBODY with a solution integrating F5’s VIPRION ® application delivery and security services with the FlexPod data center and storage platform. The solution is expected to help MINDBODY reduce OpEx costs by 25 percent and see complete ROI by the end of this year. In addition, the solution has decreased application page load times by 40 percent and seen RTO reduced from 24 hours to 30 minutes. “To move the project forward, we first needed to show MINDBODY a reference architecture they could have confidence in,” said Timothy Abbott, Executive General Manager at Trace3. “The customer’s availability, security, and cost requirements made this a perfect fit for F5. As a member of F5’s GUARDIAN program and holder of more than 20 F5 certifications, we knew we could easily work in sync with their professional services team to get the job done right for the customer.”
