Highland Bank Implements Nutanix Technology to Adapt to the COVID-19 Pandemic
Nutanix Solutions Improve Infrastructure Reliability and Business Continuity
Nutanix, a leader in enterprise cloud computing, announced 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.
“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”
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.”
