National Insurance Company Saves Millions With 98% Less Hardware

How partnering with TCS allowed a national insurance provider to consolidate 1K servers to 20 while maintaining complete security and compliance 

 In 2009, a Ward’s Top 50 property and liability insurance carrier headquartered out of the eastern United States faced the monumental task of migrating seven data centers located throughout the country to one central data center on the east coast, with one back-up colocation 1,500 miles away in Texas. Moreover, with 50 offices scattered throughout the U.S., a seamless transition with zero business interruptions was non-negotiable.
