Fusepoint Managed Services Inc., a leading provider of outsourced IT services and application management, today announced it has successfully completed a challenging network migration from Solaris to Linux for customer RewardStream. The Linux-based managed service solution will now provide an extra layer of ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œhardenedÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â security while doubling as a built-in disaster recovery solution.
RewardStream specializes in the design, deployment, and operation of rewards-based direct marketing programs for Fortune-class companies. To RewardStream, maintaining the highest levels of security and accessibility is essential to support continued growth while meeting the needs of clients in the financial services, insurance, telecommunications, health care, manufacturing, and retail sectors.
ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œA key business decision was made to outsource all internal IT functionality to Fusepoint, allowing RewardStream staff to continue to focus on our core business drivers ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ product development and client service,ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â said Blair Whelan, Chief Technology Officer, RewardStream. ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œWith FusepointÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s help, our move to a Linux-based solution will further improve system reliability while reducing operational costs.ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â
Fusepoint was engaged to create a customized IT solution to meet RewardStreamÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s stringent security, scalability and uptime requirements. The network was redesigned and rebuilt in an open source environment ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ giving RewardStream added stability and the comfort to run their applications and database on active standby (if ever needed) as each layer of the solution is now redundant. Overall network performance has been improved by load balancing both Web and application functionality, and RewardStreamÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s customers now benefit from the ability to choose between dedicated or shared hosting options, depending on customer needs.
ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œRewardStreamÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s network infrastructure and services represent the businessÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s lifeblood ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ their health, security and uptime are critical to the companyÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s success,ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â said Robert Offley, president and CEO of Fusepoint Managed Services. ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œAnd while RewardStream boasts an impressive team of in-house application developers, our end-to-end technical support allows their team to concentrate on developing and enhancing the technical tools that maximize the results from their clientÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s direct marketing programs.ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â
