Bank of Marin deploys CloudGenix SD-WAN to improve application performance for its employees to ensure delivery of legendary service to its customers
San Jose, CA – July 31, 2017 – Bank of Marin, a community bank in Novato CA, has deployed CloudGenix SD-WAN to improve application performance, allowing its employees to continue on their mission to provide “legendary service” to its customers. Bank of Marin is known as a respected financial institution with a reputation for service excellence, trusting long-term relationships, and community service.
Bank of Marin selected CloudGenix because it allowed them to radically improve performance for core banking applications, reduce time required to deploy branches, simplified the process of WAN management, reduce hardware and operational costs, and become more self-reliant rather than using third-party services for network deployment, management, and troubleshooting.
Of the CloudGenix solution, Kevin Gish, I/T Manager at Bank of Marin, said: “With CloudGenix AppFabric, I can take advantage of high bandwidth business Internet in my branches, which have an order of magnitude more bandwidth at a fraction of the price. Our core applications run faster, allowing our employees to provide legendary service to one another and to our customers.”
Regarding the ability to deploy branches more quickly, Gish had this to say about the benefits provided by CloudGenix: “Previously, we would have to wait for our core provider to provision a circuit, which was a minimum 90 day wait. With CloudGenix, I can get business Internet up and running at a branch within a couple of weeks. I can stage the entire environment in my data center, ship the boxes to the branch, plug them in, and we’re up and running in a fraction of that time.”
Gish further stated that choosing CloudGenix was easy: “From our first meeting, it was apparent that CloudGenix would give me access to people that understood and could answer my questions. I like their top-down AppFabric approach. Other devices we evaluated seem to be stuck in the mindset of glomming an SD-WAN solution on top of a legacy router model. CloudGenix is different, it uses a top-down policy that is in business language rather than networking rules.”
Kumar Ramachandran, CEO at CloudGenix, is excited about working with Bank of Marin: “We are delighted to have Bank of Marin as a customer. Bank of Marin is a model of integrity in Northern California and serves as an example to others on how to operate a judicious business.”
