Network Appliance(TM), Inc. , a provider of network-attached data access and content delivery solutions, today announced that Billserv, Inc. , an electronic bill presentment and payment (EBPP) outsourced solution provider, has deployed NetApp(R) enterprise-class filers in their IBM(R) DB2(R) database environment.
Billserv said it is using NetApp storage solutions in a DB2 UDB environment to house and manage electronic billing, online customer care resources, and Internet marketing and communication. Billserv has over 3 billion paper bills under contract and that number is continuing to grow rapidly, requiring scalable storage solutions that can integrate seamlessly with its DB2 platform without requiring a lot of IT maintenance and administration.
"To continue to match the growth of our business, we must deploy storage solutions that can scale with us to power our mission-critical databases and ensure our customers have access to data anytime, anywhere. NetApp solutions complement DB2 universal databases, raising the bar for how we view data management," said Louis Hoch, president and COO at Billserv. "We promise our customers the highest quality of service and demand the same from our network infrastructure. Network Appliance fits that bill."
