Data is the new oil, especially for capital market player ENAM Asset Management. The company wanted to gain competitive advantage by becoming more agile, and establishing a robust data recovery system.
They implemented a hyperconverged solution for data protection. It replaced the legacy system with hyperconverged nodes in its primary datacenter. And, also deployed cloud infrastructure for disaster recovery. Additionally, the organization deployed enterprise level wireless infrastructure for secure connectivity for employees and guests.
