With the objective to promote innovation and sustainability, European Fund Administration (EFA) has recently upgraded its IT infrastructure to offer clients fund administration services powered by a state-of-the-art and green IT platform.
To guarantee best performance and permanent continuity of EFA’s services, the infrastructure, distributed across two IT rooms, individually sized to operate all production activities are now both hosted in certified Tier-IV data centers.
Jean-Marc Verdure, Director of IT, Organization & General Services says: “Our applications are running on mission critical computer systems hosted in award-winning Tier-IV data centers offering the highest level of availability with fully redundant subsystems, supervised and managed on a 24/7 basis. In the event of a technical incident or unavailability of a data center, a partial or overall take-over of our services and applications can be done instantaneously in a single data center”.
This upgrade has also enabled EFA to renew hardware and systems with sustainable and eco- friendly components and processes (materials, cooling systems, power consumption management, recycling...) to promote a better approach to Corporate Social Responsibility. To confirm its commitment in behaving responsibly by integrating environmental concerns into business operations, EFA was also recently awarded the EcoVadisCorporate Social Responsibility silver rating.
