WASHINGTON D.C.

WASHINGTON D.C.—September 27, 2017— Virtustream, the enterprise-class cloud company and a Dell Technologies business, today announced that Fidelity & Guaranty Life Insurance has selected Virtustream Storage Cloud for the archive and long-term retention of mission-critical data. Integrated with Dell EMC Data Domain and Dell EMC Data Protection Suite, Virtustream Storage Cloud was designed for the enterprise with industry leading 13 x 9s of data durability and uninterrupted read access in the event of an unplanned outage.

Founded in 1959, Fidelity & Guaranty Life Insurance provides annuities and life insurance for more than 700,000 policyholders across the United States. While the organization touts a nearly six-decade history of serving customers, their approach to how they deliver that service is not dated. Their IT team strongly believes in a forward-thinking technology strategy to drive results while redefining their approach to business.

“We chose Virtustream Storage Cloud because of its predictable cost model, ease of use and the way it integrates with the Dell EMC Data Protection Suite,” said Jeff Sabin, IT Infrastructure Services director, Fidelity & Guaranty Life Insurance.

The need to offer an enhanced customer experience while keeping vast amounts of data accessible and secure, has ushered in Fidelity & Guaranty Life’s digital transformation. The IT team’s thorough technology strategy laid out a clear path for Fidelity’s future, along with necessary business requirements to make it a success.

“We deal with vast amounts of data on multiple platforms and we have to protect that data the best way we know how, which is through the Virtustream Storage Cloud,” said Sabin.

The complete solution provides a full suite of services that deliver the following key benefits:

  • Superior deduplication
  • Shorter backup windows
  • Reduced costs vs. traditional tape-based backup
  • Single-source support across the entire solution

“In addition to enterprise-class capabilities, simplicity, plus Dell EMC hybrid cloud storage and backup integration, we are providing Fidelity & Guaranty Life Insurance a customized experience that takes into account their business plans and requirements,” said Dan Campbell, SVP, Storage Cloud, Virtustream. “Our relationship with the customer is as important as the solution we provide, and we take seriously the trust that they have placed in us to store their long-term data.”
