Infortrend's ESVA Helps LPS Agency Sales and Posting Improve Data Flow

Enterprise SAN Solution Replaces Legacy Storage Equipment; Lowers Operating Costs Without Sacrificing Storage Capacity and Performance

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - March 16, 2010) - When Agency Sales and Posting (ASAP), a division of Lender Processing Services, Inc. (LPS), determined that the company's current storage system was no longer capable of handling its data flow requirements and needed to be replaced, they commenced a search for an online data processing application that could meet their data demands -- in a high availability environment.

LPS - Agency Sales and Posting, Inc. (ASAP) is a member of the Lender Processing Services family of companies. ASAP has been in business since 1983 and currently maintains offices in Arizona, California, Michigan, and New York. With headquarters in Irvine, Calif., ASAP is the leading provider of foreclosure publication, posting and auctioneer services for attorneys and trustees.

After a thorough vetting of available offerings, ASAP selected the ESVA F60 Fibre Channel storage solution from Infortrend® (TPE: 2495), a leader in networked storage.

With the ESVA F60 Fibre Channel storage solution running in conjunction with Microsoft® Windows® 2008 and a Microsoft SQL Server, Infortrend transformed legacy, expensive storage requirements into a high performance, high scalability storage solution for ASAP -- at an affordable price. According to James Hsieh, vice president of global marketing at Infortrend, "ASAP can now seamlessly expand storage capacity, create snapshots and implement remote replication with ease. Infortrend's ESVA® solution requires minimum system downtime and saves on administrative costs."

Additionally, the ESVA F60's scale-out architecture, in which independent storage systems are combined together to form a virtual pool and scaling consists of simply adding more storage systems to the pool, enables ASAP to expand their storage systems on an as-needed basis.

Since the initial installation, ASAP has ordered an additional expansion unit from Infortrend, and has added it to the current ESVA storage solution. According to Bryan Bellacosa, AVP and director of technology development for ASAP, "We are very impressed with how the ESVA storage solution has been performing at our Irvine, Calif. data center."

It offers wide configuration choices to meet diverse application requirements of performance, capacity, space, and costs. Based on Enterprise Scalable Virtualized Architecture, the ESVA FC SAN can help midrange enterprises optimize return on investment, simplify storage infrastructure and maximize application productivity. ESVA is a powerful solution that provides lower total cost of ownership (TCO), with seamless integration into an existing corporate infrastructure.
