Evanston Capital Management (ECM), an Illinois-based fund of funds, has migrated its core servers and applications to the Gravitas Private Cloud, a project completed in less than six months.
ECM faced an impending upgrade and replacement of its in-house datacenter, and made the decision to migrate to the cloud. The project centered on relocating ECM's computing infrastructure to Gravitas-linked datacenters in Chicago and New Jersey to support production and disaster recovery.
"Migrating to Gravitas Private Cloud allows us to replace significant recurring capital expenditures tied to on-site infrastructure with a predictable monthly operating expense for hosting and monitoring of all our systems," says Kenneth Meister, ECM president and COO.
