Advans How To: UMass Data Warehouse Upgrade
The Advans Data Warehouse and Business Intelligence Team has completed its upgrade of the University of Massachusetts’s enterprise-wide data warehouse application. Part of this project involved Advans creating a lab in its datacenter for testing upgrade procedures before running them on UMass’ applications.
Advans deployed a netPulz virtual WAN to connect its datacenter to two UMass datacenters because:
- Site-to-site connections can be set-up in minutes
- Using data in real-time cut the project timeline significantly
- Ease of management when using an onsite/offshore team
A white paper is now available on the Advans website describing the project methodology and its use of the netPulz virtual WAN.
