INAP Data Centers Inks Managed Multicloud Services Deal with LGE Community Credit Union
RESTON, VA – Internap and LGE Community Credit Union, a not-for-profit financial institution serving communities in northwest Georgia, have announced a multi-year agreement for managed cloud services.
Established in 1951 as a member-owned institution, LGE required a partner who understood its commitment to customer service and primary goal of improving the financial well-being of its members. LGE selected INAP for its flexible managed services offerings, as well as the consultative nature of INAP’s pre-sales process, which emphasizes an application-driven, needs-based solutions engineering approach to infrastructure design. The resulting mix of solutions will allow LGE’s internal IT team to focus less on routine infrastructure upkeep and more on providing value-added projects and activities for its members.
“We are excited to partner with INAP to enhance our technology resiliency,” said Murali Krishnan, CIO of LGE Community Credit Union. “INAP’s overall infrastructure capabilities and professional expertise are well aligned in supporting and strengthening our long-term IT strategy.”
INAP offered LGE a suite of flexible, full-spectrum solutions to support LGE’s data center and disaster recovery operational needs.
“INAP is thrilled to welcome a company with a strong history like LGE Community Credit Union into the INAP family,” said Jennifer Curry, SVP of Global Cloud Services. “Credit unions, banks and financial institutions are key verticals for our managed private cloud and cloud-based disaster recovery solutions. These institutions must assure complete security and the promise of always-on availability for their members, and we are committed to helping them achieve these critical goals.”
LGE worked with Jason Jones of Cresa C3, the technology division of Cresa Global Inc., a real estate firm that helps clients identify and select the most appropriate buildings and technology, in selecting INAP as the service provider.
