Designed by Dimension Data, the new infrastructure is projected to save the firm around 10 percent a year on IT costs.

A Singapore-based investment firm has said that its new US$3 million infrastructure designed by Dimension Data is “proving to be a good investment”. This is according to a statement released by Dimension Data today (27 March) Dimension Data did not reveal the name of the firm in the report but said that it is “one of the largest Singapore-based investment firms in Asia.” 

According to the report, Dimension Data revamped the firm's IT set-up, which entailed the implementation of a unified computing solution, a Vplex virtual storage solution for its data centre and an enterprise-class security firewall.

The implementation, which took seven months to complete, incorporates a Cisco UCS for tighter integration, improved visibility, ease of management and an upgraded data centre that drives a faster network and has a greater storage capacity, said Dimension Data in the report.

The overall carbon footprint of the firm's IT infrastructure has since reportedly shrunk. Additionally, in outsourcing network support to Dimension Data, the firm is said to have realised productivity gains.

The new infrastructure is also estimated to reduce the firm’s IT costs by 10 percent per year.
