A PlayCore company with the tagline “Power Your Potential,” the online retailer for the sports and fitness industry is known for creating an extraordinary customer experience with a complete product selection and fast delivery.
So, when Power Systems required the modernization of its infrastructure to support its growing, transaction-heavy operations, it needed an additionally powerful partner to help deliver reliable data protection. One that could deliver the highly scalable VMware virtual server infrastructure to support its future growth along with an offsite data center with the backup and enterprise storage data redundancy that would compliantly support its demands for high availability. To realize its full potential, Power Systems turned to Veristor.
See how Veristor delivered the virtualized environment to protect Power Systems’ customer data and ensure PCI compliance.
“Veristor has proven to be a real infrastructure expert,” said Brian Gladfelter, Systems and Security Administrator, Power Systems. “They’ve already solved our problems before and have the support staff that tackle anything. That’s why I knew they’d architect the infrastructure that would solve our needs, without adding additional management work.”
Making the Move to Cloud Backup
Power Systems’ traditional approach to backup was complex. Using a tape-based system, it was difficult to manage. Plus, server sprawl was increasing power consumption and the risk of data loss.
To ensure compliance with PCI regulations while protecting critical customer and business data, Power Systems wanted to deploy a more efficient virtual server infrastructure with complete redundancy, protected by a managed data protection solution to improve recoverability.
Veristor architected a new virtual server infrastructure for Power Systems with offsite redundancy and cloud backup. This has given Power Systems the reliable availability it desired to more efficiently serve its customers while ensuring PCI compliance.
“Veristor provided expertise every step of the way,” said Gladfelter, “from migrating the data to implementation of the environment to ongoing support. Their team is second to none.”
