Pennsylvania Lumbermens Mutual Insurance Company (PLM) Case Study
Pennsylvania Lumbermens Mutual Insurance Company, a property and casualty insurance carrier serving the lumber and building materials industries, finds it crucial to maintain business continuity while keeping IT operations lean. Faction, a leading Managed Service Provider and VMware Cloud Verified partner played an important role in PLM’s evolution to the cloud, first providing a hosted private cloud and then helping PLM move to VMware Cloud on AWS.
“We used to run everything on-premises, but as we reduced our physical footprint, we needed a partner that could provide co-location and managed services,” says BJ Gardner, lead systems architect at PLM. “Faction was a good fit for us because they provided highly personal service and really became a part of our team.”
PLM’s latest move involved migrating its DR site to VMware Cloud on AWS, which reduced costs by nearly 20 percent and gave PLM the scalability and resiliency to keep business-critical systems running in the event of a disaster.
