Nutanix, a player in enterprise cloud computing, has announced that Amman Stock Exchange Company, ASE, has successfully deployed its hyperconverged infrastructure-based cloud platform. The solution, which was expertly implemented by PROTECH, has eliminated hardware maintenance fees of over $35,000 annually and significantly reduced operating expenses due to lower data centre energy consumption and space requirements.
It has also enhanced the performance of mission-critical applications such as ASE’s website, resulting in improvements in end-user satisfaction and reduction in IT helpdesk complaints. It also delivers high availability and makes zero recovery time objectives and recovery point objectives possible as Virtual Machines, VMs, can be effortlessly migrated between primary and disaster recovery sites. Nutanix has enabled ASE to consolidate its compute, storage, and networking into an all-in-one platform that is easily controlled and monitored via a single dashboard.
Eng Fadi Sodah, Director, Information and Communications Technology at Amman Stock Exchange said, “We went from 42U racks in each site, fully mounted with legacy servers, storage and controllers, to just 4U of servers running Nutanix AOS, including AHV hypervisor, and hosting all our applications. This of course has resulted in massive energy and space savings. In addition to this significant reduction in operational expenses, the five-year licensing and support terms provided by Nutanix offers ASE the potential to save over $56,000 per year,” said Sodah.
Sodah highlighted that the solution’s self-healing, patching, data protection, replication, policy enforcement, and event logging features have been especially beneficial to his organisation. “All this has meant that we have seen a great improvement in the ease of management. Nutanix has reduced the effort needed for managing our environment, which enables my IT team to focus on more valuable tasks,” he said.
