AHEAD and Dell Technologies Continue to Deliver Strategy-First Solutions During Trying Times

A tangled-up, mishmash of storage, server and virtualization offerings with a slew of interoperability and performance issues. That is the technology scenario a large bank in New York was struggling with before Dell Technologies and AHEAD swooped in to save the day.

“It was a complete hodgepodge where it was very expensive to run and nothing seemed to work,” said Stephen Ayoub, president of AHEAD, a $1.3 billion Chicago-based Dell Technologies Titanium partner, regarding the bank’s IT infrastructure.

Together with Dell Technologies, AHEAD replaced all of those competitive products by leveraging mostly VxRail—Dell Technologies’ market-leading hyperconverged infrastructure—as well as VMware’s software stack to win a $150 million contract. AHEAD was able to save the bank millions each year by cutting its annual IT costs by 15 percent while at the same time increasing reliability and massively reducing deployment time and complexity.
