CSI’s cloud hosting solution will provide community financial institutions with a reliable, accessible and compliant IT infrastructure, while optimizing costs.
By addressing infrastructure inefficiencies, this cloud hosting environment minimizes institutions’ investment in hardware and in-house maintenance of an IT environment, and provides them the ability to host servers and desktops in a securely managed cloud infrastructure.
With the option to scale as the needs of the institution grow, cloud hosting services allow for flexibility while meeting cybersecurity and regulatory requirements.
CSI’s public cloud offering embraces Microsoft Azure as the global backbone of delivery, thereby inheriting the resiliency and elasticity of that platform, coupled with an engineering design tailored to the institutions CSI serves.
“As technology rapidly evolves, our customers need IT solutions to enhance their infrastructure, boost performance and eliminate risks,” said Kurt Guenther, CSI’s group president of Business Solutions.
“Through this strategic partnership with Summit Technology Group, we’re providing our customers with a highly available and secure cloud-based infrastructure that ensures compliance and results in cost efficiencies.”
By delivering a uniform desktop experience without introducing latency, CSI’s cloud hosting solution creates a technology environment that provides secure access from anywhere, on any device—for both local and remote users—through a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI).
This solution allows institutions to optimize their IT environment and support future growth.
“We are thrilled to partner with CSI to offer innovative cloud hosting services to their customers,” said Ben Wallace, managing partner of Summit Technology Group.
“This partnership will empower CSI customers to increase their agility for changing business needs, provide unified user experiences to virtual desktops and reap the benefits of a modern IT infrastructure.
“CSI’s cloud orientation is unique among their peers, reflecting an effort to equip their customers with leading-edge solutions.”
