• London Capital Group reduces deal time with Nutanix Enterprise Cloud

        • Enterprise cloud company, Nutanix, has announced that the London Capital Group (LCG) has deployed its enterprise cloud solution to host its core financial services as part of a major investment and rebrand.

          LCG, provider of online trading services, has consolidated computing, virtualisation, and storage into a single appliance, the Xtreme Computing Platform. The two installations were completed within two days including a migration of all existing physical and virtual workloads to a VMware environment.

          Blair Wright, CIO at London Capital Group said, “our first Nutanix demo was a real light bulb moment, alerting us to the availability of an equally scalable alternative that could be both quicker to deploy and simpler to manage. The reduction in the complexity of installation and diverse skill set requirement we would have had with other vendors has been a major factor in keeping to our deadlines and we’ve managed with far less headcount than we thought and haven’t had to hire any specialist storage staff.”

          By changing the procurement and consumption model for IT, LCG can scale its virtualisation environment with Nutanix’s pay-as-you-grow approach, enabling the business to buy what is required. Key to the enhanced trading experience proposition is the company’s online and mobile trading platform, LCG Trader. Thanks to the enterprise cloud solution, it is now delivering faster and more reliable deal execution time.

          Paul Phillips, Regional Director at Nutanix added, “our offering delivers an enterprise cloud to businesses which is suited to the speed of LCG’s business, providing cloud-like agility, pay-as-you-grow IT resource consumption and operational simplicity without sacrificing the predictability, security and control of on-premise infrastructure. While the world of spread betting may be all about risk, the resilience and predictability that comes with deploying web-scale infrastructure that is 100% software-defined offers some much-needed certainty that can be relied upon.”

          Buoyed by this successful initial phase of migration, staff at LCG are currently looking at future projects with Nutanix.
