First Marblehead Teams With VMware Professional Services to Migrate a Datacenter Without Lifting a Server
Headquartered in Boston, with major datacenters in Bedford and Medford, Massachusetts, First Marblehead helps meet the growing demand for education loans by providing an integrated suite of customized design, implementation and securitization services for private student loan programs. To support the company's rapid growth, First Marblehead wanted to switch to a secure off-site datacenter, but was faced with a short planning and execution window and the challenge of securely moving approximately 100 terabytes of data. For this they deployed VMware. VMware's Professional Services provided: Datacenter migration plan that covered the entire virtual infrastructure from development to QA, staging, production and disaster recovery.
