Credit Union merger brings five Credit Unions together with strategic investment in centralised technology infrastructure solution

Credit Union Plus invests in highly available and secure centralised IT infrastructure
The Challenge

Following the merger of 5 credit unions, Credit Union Plus needed a centralised IT infrastructure on which all the credit unions could depend. And it needed to be a highly redundant and secure solution working 24 x 7.

The Solution

Trilogy designed and implemented an enterprise class highly resilient hybrid cloud infrastructure. The on-premise Virtual Private Cloud is replicated to a secondary data centre in Dublin and incorporates both infrastructure and application fail-over and Disaster Recovery. The infrastructure utilises technology from NetApp and Cisco, with business continuity and Disaster Recovery via VMware and Veeam, together with Microsoft 365 for email. Underpinning this was the managed roll-out of a fully redundant network infrastructure over a private MPLS network.

The Result

Credit Union Plus has implemented a fully redundant, highly secure network infrastructure, disaster recovery and managed services solution to support its growing business and meet stringent IT compliance and governance regulations of the Central Bank. The complete solution is underpinned by a proactive ITIL based Managed IT Service contract.

Trilogy Technologies won IT Project of the Year for this work with Credit Union Plus at Tech Excellence Awards 2017.
