ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – U.S. New Mexico FCU has contracted with INX Inc. to provide it with data center virtualization services.

The project will virtualize all production servers for the $650 million credit union and organize them so that they will reside on a storage area network. By having the servers reside on the SAN, they are enabled to take advantage of SAN attributes such as higher performance, reliability, scalability and manageability.

In addition, the company said all virtualized servers will have high availability to significantly reduce the possibility of server failure. The design will save the credit union money long term by reducing the amount of servers required, thereby decreasing long term maintenance, power and cooling costs.

INX also designed a disaster recovery solution that will include two physically separated environments: one location at an Albuquerque facility and the second at an offsite telecom colocation facility.

INX was chosen for the project based on a successful, five-year business relationship with the credit union. This project represents nearly $475,000 in product and service revenue for INX. The project will start this month.

INX is based in Dallas.
