The company needed to refresh its core network within the data centers at their co-headquarters in New York, NY and Nashville, TN. Each location acts as a failover for the other. Our client needed the core network to perform well, but also remain secure from the types of threats that plague many e-commerce businesses, like DDoS attacks and ransomware.
With the regular rollout of new brick-and-mortar locations, the organization also required a solution that could guarantee the reliable delivery of the necessary network stacks to both their current and future retail sites. If successful, this venture would establish a fast and reliable method for opening a fully operational retail outlet, even on short notice. Achieving these three core requirements would allow our client to aggressively pursue expansion while continuing to provide secure and uninterrupted services to customers at its existing locations.
Finally, the company needed reliable hardware support with strong SLAs for the network core and the network stacks at each of its many physical locations.
