Provident Financial, the UK's leading provider of personal credit products, used the move of its Bradford headquarters as an opportunity to reassess its IT nfrastructure and decided to relocate its data centre, which was formerly on site.
The new deal, which builds on their previous relationship with data centre provider Node4, will allow Provident Financial to keep control of their equipment but have peace of mind that it will be housed in a suitable purpose built environment. Provident Financial issued a tender to find a company that would help facilitate its move by providing it with a data centre that would be secure enough to host all of its vital data. At the same time, it was also important that this data centre would be within a close enough proximity to enable the technicians to gain easy access. As a result of this, Node4's data centre in Wakefield was an ideal location for Provident Financial's service.
