Low Latency, High Availability and Robust Security Key Factors for Selection
ADVA Optical Networking announced today that the Stock Exchange of Thailand has deployed the ADVA FSP 3000 for mission-critical storage area network (SAN) connectivity. Focusing primarily upon business continuity and disaster recovery applications, the ADVA FSP 3000 was specifically chosen because of its proven success in other financial networks around the world. The Thailand Stock Exchange is now able to transport information between data centers with low latency, high availability and robust security. The ADVA FSP 3000 was installed and will be maintained by Stream I.T. Consulting.
“Trust is the cornerstone of our business. It’s something we pride ourselves on. It’s what our customers expect from us, it’s what we expect from ourselves,” said Mr. Thirapun Sanpakit, senior vice president group head, IT Operations, Stock Exchange of Thailand. “An always-on and dependable network is a key part of this trust. Our data is critical to our success and our customers’ success. They need to know data is safe, secure and readily available. The team at ADVA Optical Networking understands these demands. That’s why we’ve been working with them for many years. Our trust in their team and their technology is unwavering. They are always there, always available. Ultimately, we trust them with our business.”
Another key to ADVA Optical Networking’s long-term success with the Stock Exchange of Thailand is its certification record. The ADVA FSP 3000 is one of the few products within the industry to have such a wealth of industry accreditation. It is officially qualified by all leading storage vendors, including IBM and Brocade. This level of certification ensures high degrees of interoperability and plug-and-play simplicity. Matching such ease of use with performance is key for the Stock Exchange of Thailand, enabling them to focus on their business and not their network. In this environment, the network becomes a key differentiator and a true business asset.
“The Stock Exchange of Thailand has a genuine understanding of their customers’ needs, of what it takes to help them succeed. It’s part of who they are,” commented Thomas Yeo, senior director, Greater China and South East Asia, ADVA Optical Networking. “Their network is a key part of this and is continually being developed to provide the best customer experience possible. This is why the ADVA FSP 3000 is so important. It enables the Stock Exchange of Thailand to take their services to the next level, to develop even more business opportunities for their customers. This is what sets them apart. They have an innate understanding of how to leverage their network to drive an even greater value proposition. It’s this drive that makes working with them so exciting.”
“The Stock Exchange of Thailand and ADVA Optical Networking share one key vision and this is to provide the best customer experience possible,” said Pinyo Kumpookaew, Enterprise Solution director, Stream I.T. Consulting. “Our role is to ensure that there are no missed steps, no missed opportunities to developing a network that fulfills all expectations. There can be no question that we achieved this here. The Stock Exchange of Thailand has a network that not only exceeds expectations today, but that will continue to do so in the future. Its inherent scalability will ensure that it meets all customer demands and transports all data in the fastest and most secure way possible.”
