Pure IT’s Solutions
At Pure IT, we have built a practice around solving IT issues for Credit Unions. We help Credit Unions identify gaps in their infrastructure and then work together with our clients to resolve those gaps. Our staff of experienced architects provide clear documentation and have open and transparent conversations to help Credit Unions understand what is working well, what may need improvement, what may be a business or security priority, as well as how much those improvements may cost.
Our team of IT engineers, technicians, and consultants help remediate any issues uncovered during an assessment. With a clear process, priority list, and agreed upon schedule we quickly work to improve Credit Union’s IT systems. The end result, the Credit Union is well prepared to take the next step towards any larger infrastructure projects.
After remediation, we design the future state architecture to support the Credit Union’s goals. We have experienced Enterprise Architects who listen for business goals, understand business processes, and help create an overall holistic IT architecture that meets the specialized needs of the Credit Union. The architecture and IT strategy go hand-in-hand to support and enable your Credit Union’s overall business strategy.
Pure IT’s Solutions
Typical IT teams will spend 90% or more of their time firefighting issues within their environment and assisting users. Credit Union staff often have little time left to work on strategic projects that move technology, security, and stability forward. Here at Pure IT, we strive to free Credit Union staff for higher business needs. Once a new environment is designed and implemented, we have the ability to provide Managed Services whereby the daily management of your environment is simply a monthly service. That 7x24x365 support includes proactive monitoring and management, regular updates (tested and verified against the client software requirements), policy management based upon business needs, and Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS). Our Managed Service offering frees up your IT team to focus on high value member applications and member services while we take care of the infrastructure foundation activities.
as a Service (IaaS)
At Pure IT Credit Union Services, our team combines all of the services included in a public cloud offering from providers like Amazon and Microsoft, however we build a custom and physically smaller private cloud solution. Our ‘Pure IT Micro Cloud’ can reside inside your data center, at your colocation facility, or within our Tier IV data center space with replication to a secondary site anywhere in the United States. This gives you all of the benefits of cloud computing but in your own private solution. Credit Unions can create virtual servers on demand to enable new services and functionality, they can also grow and scale the environment without adding additional costs for hardware and support. In this way, Credit Unions get the benefit of the ‘cloud’ within a private IT environment.
Our ‘Pure IT Micro Cloud’ also adds the ability to have completely virtualized environments for the desktop infrastructure (VDI). Instead of managing dozens or hundreds of separate desktops in various locations, you can manage all of the desktops as a centralized service. VDI saves time and money while providing greater defense against catastrophic failure, improving upon updates to desktop applications, and providing an easy way to customize the desktops based on business logic and policy. Every bit of the communication is encrypted and desktops are both secure and fast. This allows Credit Union IT staff to support their internal employees and Credit Union employees can now serve members from anywhere.
Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS)
When utilizing virtualized or cloud services, some additional options for disaster recovery become available. Pure IT has built a disaster recovery cloud environment where we can keep your virtual machines replicated in real time and allow you to fail into the Pure IT hosted environment. Credit Unions can use our DR technology between private Pure IT Micro Clouds or use our DRaaS solution with a Credit Union’s existing IT environment.
There is a very distinct difference between disaster recovery and backup. At Pure IT we offer both as we understand Credit Unions are required to retain archived copies of files that might be deleted by accident, by malicious events, or are required for data retention regulations. Our Backup as a Service solution keeps your data backed up, encrypted, and transmitted off-site so Credit Union data is always protected.
