Infrastructure Project

Project Description

Westfund Technology Project
Westfund is a national, member owned health fund servicing rural and regional areas largely in New South Wales and Queensland and provides health cover to all Australians.

Virtual infrastructure was built combining best-of-breed technologies from industry leaders NetApp, Cisco and VMware. Combining these vendors with ITConsult’s intimate systems integration knowledge provided Westfund with an IT environment that adds value across the entire organisation. The nature of the infrastructure means Westfund has gained a level of flexibility and agility not available with their previous IT; from multi-protocol storage, to VMware’s ability to integrate and facilitate hardware. The result is freedom in future to steer the IT where the organisation needs it to go.

Simplified management with KACE, NetApp’s unified storage and VMware means less time can be sent on management and more time spent adding value to the organisation.

Westfund’s backup and recovery solutions were of key significance, they are now able to safeguard critical data and drive operational efficiencies by reducing backup time, improving data recovery, and cutting infrastructure, tape, and administrative costs. NetApp backups transfer only new or changed blocks to shrink backup windows, minimize network traffic, and reduce disk capacity requirements
