First American Title Insurance Co. has upgraded its data center to a Converged Infrastructure from HP, to improve delivery of title and escrow services, while supporting business growth.

HP says First American chose to use the ProLiant DL980 G7 server, running Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise Edition and Microsoft SQL Server 2008. The ProLiant improves scalability, availability and energy efficiency. Converged Infrastructure, says HP, delivers a unified management framework that allows clients to easily manage mixed environments of Integrity and ProLiant servers.

Converged Infrastructure enabled First American to move its existing Windows SQL Server environment from HP Integrity to the new HP DL980 systems smoothly and with minimal disruption, says HP. The DL980 servers enabled First American to recognize significant space and power savings. These results led First American to use DL980 servers for other workload-intensive applications, including its data warehouse solution.

HP says DL980 reduced extract, transform and load processing time from eight to 2.5 hours, and has improved service delivery time by 70 percent. First American relies on HP Mission Critical Services to maintain peak performance of its infrastructure. Converged Infrastructure is a key component of the Instant-On Enterprise, which embeds technology in everything it does to serve customers, employees, partners and citizens with whatever they need, instantly.
