Equifax provides consumer and business credit data and other financial information to millions of people. Its massive IT infrastructure spans the globe and is the heart of its business. To reconfigure its vast collection of servers more nimbly and to reduce costs, Equifax used Microsoft cloud software to deploy a multisite, multitenant private cloud environment. The Equifax IT team can now deploy servers in 15 minutes rather than three weeks, greatly accelerating its response to business needs. The new environment significantly reduces infrastructure costs - and further reduces IT management overhead, freeing IT staff to work on high-value projects. Equifax has also been able to implement affordable disaster recovery, which keeps its applications running without interruption.
