Core Pacific – Yamaichi enhances overall IT experience with Fujitsu one-stop shop ICT solution

Seamlessly Migrated Financial Services Data Center and Upgraded Unified Communications

Fujitsu Hong Kong Limited

Hong Kong, October 21, 2014

Fujitsu Hong Kong unveiled today the successful migration of Core Pacific – Yamaichi's (CPY) ICT facilities to a data center managed by Fujitsu Hong Kong. The seamless migration was made possible with Fujitsu's one-stop-shop solution encompassing consultancy and project management of data center co-location design, planning and building, Unified Communications (UC) solution, core low latency network plus WAN design and implementation, system integration, migration services, and ongoing maintenance. With its ICT infrastructure hosted at Fujitsu's data center, CPY now enjoys a significant boost to its overall network performance and peace of mind that its IT systems will operate at maximum uptime.

As a comprehensive financial conglomerate with deep roots in the Greater China region, CPY focuses on providing a broad range of financial services to the region and has enjoyed robust growth in recent years, resulting in an increased demand on its ICT infrastructure. Essential to the financial services industry, IT and telecommunications systems must be fully operational at all times to support the instantaneous needs of modern day traders and financial analysts. Thus, an enhanced ICT system was needed to facilitate CPY's growth. CPY opted to migrate and consolidate its data center to a secondary location where a centralized management system would ensure continuous support of each function. A potential migration was particularly complicated due to the deployment of an extensive communications network and IT infrastructure, which must remain at all times in full adherence to regulatory compliance.

Mr. Richard Chen, CEO, Core Pacific – Yamaichi, explained, "After reviewing various service providers, we were most impressed by Fujitsu's track record in data center and their customer-centric approach. They score high in reliability according to industry's reference and are patient to understand our needs. Few in the market gave us as much confidence in providing such sophisticated end-to-end solutions."

Facing this challenge, CPY engaged Fujitsu to plan and execute the migration of its data center and communications system. Fujitsu offered CPY a one-stop-shop solution, providing everything from initial consultation and services on data center migration to developing a tailor-made ICT office featuring a fully-consolidated IT network powered by state-of-the-art infrastructure and communications system. With a wealth of experience in handling complicated data center migrations, the Fujitsu team developed a well-thought out relocation road map and set out to execute their plan.

Powering CPY's new ICT office is the design and build of a dedicated server rack cage in a secured data center environment with robust infrastructure, including FUJITSU Server PRIMERGY RX200, RX300, and FUJITSU Storage ETERNUS DX100. Given the critical role of the telecommunications network to CPY's business, Fujitsu also installed a cost-effective, high availability UC solution featuring site-to-site fail-over technology. In addition, Fujitsu strategized the migration of CPY's PABX and voice recording system to a modernized IP-based voice recording solution, which consolidated its analog telephone lines into several trunk lines for easy management.

Mr. Derek Yiu, General Manager, Solutions and Services Business at Fujitsu Hong Kong, explained, "The Fujitsu team is very proud to work hand-in-hand with CPY and the successful migration of its systems to the new data center. Our comprehensive one-stop-shop ICT solution has a remarkable impact on the company's ICT transformation, and is the most seamless offering in the industry. We look forward to continuing our partnership with CPY."

Fujitsu successfully completed the relocation project on time in parallel to upgrade the core network and UC system without any interruptions to normal operations, delivering the entire project in only four months. Immediately thereafter, CPY's new data center contributed to an overall enhancement in network performance. In addition, the fully consolidated network and system, including Windows directory server and administrative functions, provided CPY with a reliable and high-performance IT system to effectively reduce its total cost of ownership. CPY has deployed a voice recording system with the technical readiness to expand across the operation, bringing great enhancements to speed and user satisfaction.

"The before and after of our data center and overall IT experience is like night and day. We have not only maximized our IT reliability, but also lowered overall operating costs and users appreciate the resilience brought by the new systems. All in all, it was a great experience working with Fujitsu's veteran team of experts, and we look forward to enjoying the long term benefits from our new ICT systems and data center services," concluded Chen.
