New Jersey-based Infosolve Technologies gives customers the ability to rapidly integrate, cleanse and standardize their enterprise data. Since its inception in 2003, the company has acquired customers of all kinds and sizes -- from Fortune 50 global giants to non-profit organizations -- across a wide range of industries.
To accommodate the increase in customers, Infosolve looked to scale its internal IT infrastructure but the costs of procuring, maintaining, managing and continuously expanding new server clusters were prohibitive. In weighing up its options, Infosolve decided on Sun Grid Compute Utility, accessed through Sun’s Network.com pay-for-use service. This has resulted in a saving of $150,000 per year/per server node versus a conventional hosting service in addition to avoiding expenditures in the region of $250,000 - $300,000 per year to build and maintain an in-house server cluster, in addition to gaining increased flexibility to meet clients varying needs.
Subbu Manchiraju, VP of Infosolve Technologies, recently discussed the company's story in more detail, highlighting the cost savings, ease of scalability and increased flexibility resulting from the Sun Grid Compute Utility and how these will help to ensure the continued success of Infosolve.
