In 2009, Steria commenced a five-year partnership agreement with Land Registry, the definitive source of information for more than 23 million property titles in England and Wales. Since 1862, Land Registry has provided security and confidence in one of the most active property and mortgage markets in the world.
Steria in partnership with Land Registry is responsible for the maintenance of the agency’s distributed IT infrastructure. As part of this requirement to refresh aging legacy Windows Server Infrastructure, Steria needed an infrastructure design that could provide a flexible and cost-effective IT service over the coming years.
The infrastructure design was used to deliver an on-site Private Cloud deployment and gives Steria the ability to provide Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) to Land Registry. With a single virtual data centre physically split over multiple locations, powerful management, automation and orchestration with simple one-click workflows and infrastructure resources always available.
Following a competitive selection process, Steria selected ANS’ Managed Infrastructure Service, based on the FlexPod i3 platform. FlexPod i3 brings together best-of-breed technologies from Cisco, NetApp and VMware to offer the industry’s first jointly validated multi-tenancy architecture. ANS’ award-winning design is a standardised and streamlined solution that guarantees lowest total cost of ownership with highest possible return on investment.
The infrastructure solution designed and delivered by ANS has given Steria a more resilient and high-performing platform that allows them to deliver numerous business and operational benefits to their clients.
