Ongoing Operations, Digital FCU, Xand form partnership
HAGERSTOWN, Md. (7/15/14)--Ongoing Operations, a provider of business continuity solutions for credit unions, has formed a partnership with Digital FCU, Marlborough, Mass., and Xand, a data center provider, to help credit unions in the northeast United States ensure uninterrupted member service.
 
Ongoing Operations is a CUNA Strategic Solutions alliance provider.
 
"Even with the latest technological advances, having alternate data center space within driving distance can be critical for credit unions during a crisis situation," said Kirk Drake, Ongoing Operations CEO.
 
The Xand data center, located in Westchester County, safely outside major threat zones but close to New York City, was designed to provide the ideal environment for mission-critical business applications. The Xand facility will also feature a direct connection to Ongoing Operations' network. This will allow credit unions to leverage Ongoing Operations' connectivity solutions to ensure that critical third-party applications such as debit card processing, online banking and ATMs remain online in the event of a crisis.
 
"We are a firm believer in collaboration and have used Ongoing Operations for our own business continuity planning efforts for several years," said Dave DeWitt, vice president of risk management at the $5.5 billion-asset credit union. "This CUSO partnership further enhances disaster recovery capabilities for the benefit of more credit unions within our region."
