Q9 Gives Agnico Eagle Mines a Zero-Downtime Environment for Centralized Application Service Delivery

As it grew from a one-mine shop into a global enterprise with five leading gold and silver production sites, Agnico Eagle needed to ensure that staff operating in three countries had uninterrupted access to computing resources and applications.

 

Success Metrics

Agnico Eagle established a colocation contract with Q9 to relocate the IT infrastructure supporting its global shared services from its own data centre to a Q9 facility, where reliable power and connectivity were guaranteed.

 

“We were right in choosing Q9, because they have been there when we need them and they focus exclusively on providing the best possible data centre services.”

Agnico Eagle’s shared services infrastructure co-located at Q9 has not experienced a single interruption, and the company continues to relocate other IT services to Q9, including e-mail and

their Web site. As part of Agnico’s emerging hybrid cloud strategy, the Q9 solution gives the company a secure, reliable private cloud that is supporting continuous service delivery to its users internationally.
