Develop a personalized data center solution with a like-minded partner.
United Bank & Trust, an Ann Arbor, Michigan-based bank, was founded on a desire to help its neighbors make the best financial decisions for their personal and business needs, all the while keeping their money working for the community in which they live.
Everyone from homebuyers to businesses to college-bound students have been turning to the bank for the past 120 years to help bring dreams to life. In turn, the bank has flourished. United Bank & Trust now stretches its 18 branches across four counties and boasts nearly $1 billion in assets.
In order to continue serving as a local solutions partner, and adhere to its promise to be “unlimited in our capacity,” the bank realized a need to enhance its data storage capabilities.
“We had a limited data center with aging equipment, and we wanted to put ourselves into a data center situation where we had modern capabilities,” said Don Griffiths, Senior Vice President fo the bank’s information technology division.
Like its customers, the company sought a personalized solution: one that offered redundancy in power and connectivity, as well as scalability for future growth.
Griffiths looked into the options. “It became clear pretty quickly that to build a data center of the caliber of the professional data centers that are available out there now is not something that an institution of our size can aspire to,” he said.
