Vidsys Case Study

Vidsys Logo

Vidsys Corporation (i.e. Vidsys.com, an Ares Security Company) is a leading provider of Converged Security & Information Management Solutions since 2005. They help organizations streamline their security operations to reduce risk, manage security events in real-time, and respond to incidents more effectively. They have hundreds of security enterprise customers as well. One of their most notable high-profile customers is Apple Computer.

The Issue at Hand

Vidsys had an infrastructure that consisted of aging non clustered virtualized servers and single node storage, and as it turned out, many VM’s that weren’t being backed up properly. They needed upgrading and technical support, and they evaluated several alternatives before choosing Nfina’s Hybrid Cloud Solution (which is a fully managed solution).

Ares:
156 Cores
1.79TB RAM
100+ VM’s
106TB Storage

Vidsys:
72 Cores
1.2TB RAM
124 VM’s w/HA
52TB Storage
