Challenge: Meet 24/7 Business Data Demands

The NCF Group strategically connects people and finance with technology. The company offers progressive services, such as online loans, crowdfunding, wealth management and mobile communication.

  • Sluggish legacy storage and inadequate backup mechanisms could no longer ensure 24/7 business requirements and user expectations.
  • To meet growing business needs, NCF Group had to improve access, performance and security of its core data systems.

Solution: Always-On Speed and Resiliency

Hitachi Vantara Global Services helped NCF Group to implement a lightning-fast all-flash solution to promote core data availability, protection and agility, based on:

  • Two all-flash VSP G400s for an active-active metro cluster and guaranteed 100% continuous data availability; one VSP G200 for quorum between the two VSP G400s.
  • Hitachi Data Protection Suite (HDPS), powered by Commvault, for tightly integrated, application-aware copy and replication capabilities that support unique backup requirements to their virtual tape library.
  • Hitachi Thin Image (HTI), with high-speed, nondisruptive snapshot technology for robust business continuity.

Outcome: A New Level of FinTech

The NCF Group is poised to forge one-stop integrated financial technology (FinTech) services, thanks to the Hitachi SAN with blazing flash performance. The solution:

  • Achieves five times faster performance of core database.
  • Employs global-active device for active-active storage clustering to support continuous data availability and zero recovery point and time objectives (RTO and RPO).
  • Includes HDPS and HTI to contribute to data security without sacrificing storage performance.
  • Was installed by Hitachi Vantara Global Services, which designed and implemented the technologies to achieve an optimal return on investment.
