American Savings Bank has chosen to co-locate their data at Servpac’s MTP Data Center in Hawaii. Servpac is now working hand-in-hand with ASB to transition the bank’s legacy server room infrastructure into a secured private cage within their data hall.
With roots going back to 1925, American Savings Bank (ASB) serves Hawaii’s businesses and communities with a full range of financial products and services, including business and consumer banking, home loans, insurance and investments.
“By partnering with Servpac to keep our information technology systems operational and secure, we are able to focus our energy on providing our customers with an excellent experience,” said John O’Boyle, Vice President of Business Continuity Management, American Savings Bank. “With Servpac, we know that our equipment is secure and well-maintained and 24-hour support is available if we need it.”
O’Boyle said ASB was impressed with the prime location and the investments made to strengthen the MTP Data Center. It includes the construction of a new category 4 hurricane resistant structure and the installation of redundant power and cooling systems.
“As the only Tier 4 commercial colocation data center on Oahu, Servpac offers the enhanced security and business continuity features we need to keep our information safe and accessible no matter what situation arises,” added John O’Boyle. “Aside from having a great facility, customer service has been outstanding. We truly feel like Servpac is our partner and we appreciate their efforts to make sure we stay fully operational.”
Tier 4 Data Center Design Certification
Following the Uptime Institute’s highest Tier 4 design certification, the MTP Data Center features advanced independent and redundant features to guarantee business resiliency. Centrally located in Mililani Tech Park in the Honolulu region, MTP Data Center sits 850 feet above sea level.
“We are beginning to see a trend towards less on-premise data centers, particularly for companies and industries that rely on continuous access to mission-critical data,” said Richard Zheng, President and Founder of Servpac. “Technology is becoming more and more complex, which means certain skillsets are becoming more specialized. Colocation customers rely on Servpac because we are experts in what we do, and by outsourcing the management of their data centers to us, we enable them to gain peace of mind and focus more on their business.”
