Internet content and accounting software developer Solution 6 has scored a lucrative deal with Lasseters Casino to redevelop its online gambling facility.
Rushenka Perera, Solution 6's marketing manager, told ARN yesterday that winning the multimillion-dollar contract was a vote of confidence in its newly acquired IT services business, CVSI.
"Basically this is our second big win since we acquired CVSI," Perera said. "We acquired CVSI because of its skill in knowledge management, systems integration and managed sites services. This confirms that it was a good investment for us."
The Alice Springs-based casino has had its online gambling facility operating for several months now, but the Solution 6 overhaul will give it greater reliability and robustness and allow it to reach a wider geographical area 24 x 7.
The initial $2.2 million outlay will see Solution 6 provide Lasseters with a SAN (storage area network)-centric design. The system has an emphasis on deploying EMC Symmetrix Arrays, Sun Microsystems Unix servers and NT server environments; consolidation of all storage repositories, business continuance and support mechanisms; disaster recovery services; and offshore database replication.
