Seventh Day Adventists see the light in cloud

Church brings 20 sites onto single platform.

The Seventh Day Adventist Church has consolidated 20 sites across Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands onto a private cloud platform.

The platform is a custom flavour of VSPEX, a family of reference architecture configurations of virtualisation, server, network and storage technology aimed at private cloud seekers.

The customisation was performed by a Sydney EMC partner, Tecala Group.

Much of the work on the project appears to have been completed a number of years ago.

A case study says the church's South Pacific division sought to change its IT infrastructure design as early as 2006, linking administrative groups with a WAN and delivering hosted managed services, including backup, over that network.

It said in October last year that a "private cloud" linked the administrative entities for "close to three years"; however, the VSPEX architecture was only released in April this year.

It was unclear what changes were made to have the site certified a VSPEX customer.

Tecala claims to be the first EMC partner to offer custom versions of VSPEX.
