Nutanix (NASDAQ: NTNX), a leader in enterprise cloud computing, announced today that Highland Bank, a privately-held, business focused bank implemented Nutanix hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) to enable employees to work from anywhere in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as increase the flexibility and reliability of their infrastructure.
As a trusted advisor, Highland Bank assists their customers in a variety of ways, whether it is sharing their expertise in business lending, government-backed loan solutions, real estate lending or commercial/industrial loans. In order to deliver the best service possible, they rely heavily on their infrastructure to deliver a seamless and easy banking experience.
When the COVID-19 pandemic struck, business conditions underwent a dramatic shift. With Nutanix already installed as part of their VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure) environment, Highland Bank was fully prepared to support a highly remote workforce. Nutanix has not only enabled employees to work from home but has also helped to increase the speed and responsiveness, improving not only the IT teams experience but the end-users as well.
“We had done such a good job in investment that we had the flexibility to enable our employees to work anywhere, and the entire process was seamless for us,” said Craig Boivin, Chief Technology Officer, Highland Bank. “When we moved more than half our employees to work from home and converted to drive-through service, we had all the components in place. We didn’t need to scramble at all, and the Nutanix solution gives us the ability to run on any device.”
Prior to Nutanix, Highland Bank had an outdated IT infrastructure that was unreliable and inflexible. In addition, they were also running out of resources within their environment. Instead of investing in a short term solution like adding more random access memory (RAM), they decided to refresh their entire IT infrastructure.
After implementing Nutanix, Highland Bank is now able to access the banking and productivity resources they need from any device. With Nutanix, they are now able to condense everything into a single hyperconverged infrastructure to support all their technologies and manage it all from one console. This consolidated management allows their small IT team to do more with fewer resources.
“With Nutanix in place, Highland Bank is now able to focus on improving the experience of their end-user instead of worrying about processes and management that took up much of the IT team’s time,” Nikola Bozinovic, VP & GM, Desktop Services at Nutanix. “Nutanix allowed Highland Bank to quickly adapt to the changing needs during this unprecedented time. It is crucial that businesses are still able to provide their customers with the help and services they need, and with Nutanix Highland Bank is able to continuously deliver these services.”
Highland Bank is continuing to evaluate new ways Nutanix can improve the performance and reliability of their infrastructure.
