Chase Asia’s main business application is its telephone application for its call center which was being run on an old standalone server. This has resulted in server shutdown which caused disruptions to the business. Recovery from these interruptions took a full day. During this period, the staff had to record business data on paper - which was time-consuming, drastically reduced work efficiency, and affected the company’s usual workflow.
Additionally, Chase Asia had to comply with the external auditing regulations which required the company to do a backup and disaster recovery for its business system. This meant that the IT operator had to do a manual backup weekly - which was very inconvenient and tedious considering the limited IT staff on hand.
Sangfor’s Solution for CHASE
Sangfor proposed the use of its Hyper-Converged Infrastructure to help CHASE solve two of the major issues that the company had been facing. The Hyper-Converged Infrastructure ensured that the business system was much more stable. The company did not have to worry about nodes crashing and shutting down operations. In the event of node failure or any machine issue, the remaining machines will seamlessly be able to carry on with the work instead - ensuring optimal business continuity.
The Sangfor Hyper-Converged Infrastructure also features a convenient, built-in backup system which helped CHASE by providing automatic backups for data security without the need to install additional software from a 3rd party.
Finally, Sangfor’s solution also assisted the company in handling audits and preparations for entering the stock market in the future.
