Real Organizations, Database Challenges

Legacy infrastructure, restricted scalability, poor performance, and the complexity of database administration all contribute to the major difficulties that businesses and IT organizations confront when it comes to their infrastructure and databases. As a consequence of this, IT managers and database administrators demand a contemporary, adaptable, and easy-to-use solution that satisfies criteria regarding cost, performance, and security.

Ontario Nurses’ Association

Organization

More than 65,000 registered nurses, other healthcare workers, and 18,000 nursing student affiliations may be found throughout the province of Ontario, and the Ontario Nurses Association (ONA) represents all of them. They depend largely on their infrastructure to enable them to handle the negotiation of roughly 600 agreements, as well as to store past data for members and future cases.

Challenge

The evaluation of the network indicated that it was out of date and obsolete, unable to provide dependable support for both ongoing activities and those that may occur in the future. In addition, the work that ONA does on behalf of the members that they serve is dependent on the performance and security of its systems. As a result, the Union needs new possibilities to strike a balance between performance and cost.

Solution

The ONA needs to be able to support its members with a wide variety of workloads and services, such as email and collaboration, office productivity applications, and its own custom-built Microsoft SQL database. The infrastructure provided by Nutanix is able to support all of these workloads and services.

Historically, database infrastructure depended on three-tier virtualization, which had started to push up operating expenses and was becoming more inefficient slow down the process of deployment. The old solution was dependent on outdated AIX technology, which required specific skill sets that were difficult and costly to get. These skills were challenging to source.

Solution

This company was able to simplify its database and infrastructure management with the help of Nutanix HCI and Nutanix Era, which provided them with a unified interface that they could use to perform tasks with a single mouse click.
