Polaris Alpha

Accelerating Time to Market for Custom Security Solutions

Polaris Alpha is a trusted business that provides custom software solutions that allow government agencies such as the Department of Defense and Department of Homeland Security, to quickly evaluate potential threats and make smarter decisions. The company's reputation depends on its ability to consistently deliver solutions to all customers, on time, and within budget.

Polaris Alpha adopted a multimodal approach that applies DevOps and Agile methodologies to even its oldest legacy systems. Working with Flair Data Systems, Polaris Alpha moved its virtualized production and development systems to FlexPod Datacenter with All Flash FAS. Polaris Alpha's FlexPod environment combines Cisco UCS servers and Cisco Nexus switches with high-performance NetApp AFF8080 storage systems in a prevalidated, pretested configuration that integrated seamlessly with its multiprotocol VMware environment.

The speed of FlexPod with All Flash FAS fits nicely into the DevOps model. Moving to FlexPod has enhanced our ability to leverage virtualization and IT automation with the speed of all-flash storage.

The system now can surge to more than 100 concurrent builds with no impact on performance. Developers can test and deliver solutions to customers more quickly and more reliably than ever before.
