Marlborough Savings Bank

Marlborough Savings Bank (MSB) was founded on April 3rd and incorporated on April 10, 1860 on the eve of the Civil War. The bank was started by local shoe barons as a way for their factory workers to practice thrift. At the time we began, commercial banks were strictly for businesses and wealthy individuals, and "Savings Banks" allowed people of limited to means tostart saving, often with as little as 5 cents in an account. MSB was experiencing issues with their existing virtual infrastructure, specifically their storage platform. WCA and MSB staff worked together to determine the current requirements as well as outline the future objectives for the IT infrastructure of the organization. Along with solving the immediate storage platform deficiencies, MSB had goals to improve their Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity solution and build a platform that would support future applications, such as desktop virtualization.
