First Bank of Delaware Consolidates Data Centers

Data migration project completed with only two minutes of downtime provides cost savings of $60,000 per year.

Wilmington-based First Bank of Delaware ($205 million in assets) recently completed a consolidation of three data centers into two, a move that will save the bank approximately $60,000 a year. To help the bank meet its goal of performing a data migration while keeping voicemail systems and critical proprietary application servers protected and available 24x7, it used software from Vision Solutions called Double-Take Availability.

"The solution granted us the peace of mind that all data would be moved and protected while critical web application services remained online during the migration, thereby protecting an important revenue stream for the bank," said Louise O'Donnell, the bank's CIO.

"We needed a solution that could assist with a data center consolidation and migration effort involving three data centers across the U.S., as well as protection of the newly migrated data post-migration," said Roger Vann, vice president of information technology at The First Bank of Delaware. "The entire project resulted in only two minutes of downtime, a breath of fresh air when compared to the other options that we explored."
