Georgia Commerce Bank is a very successful, locally owned and managed independent bank in the Atlanta area. Their bankers and Board of Directors are experienced business professionals who have extensive knowledge of the local Atlanta market. Georgia Commerce Bank offers quality products and personalized services, supported by state-of-the-art technology.

Their professional bankers are focused on the long-term financial needs of the business owner and the individual consumer. Like Progressive Technology; GCB is eager to serve and they commit to never losing sight of the fact that “your success is our business.”

As GCB has achieved success and growth, their IT infrastructure required both an upgrade and redesign; not only to support new locations and expansions, but also quickly incorporate new acquisitions into their IT framework. They tasked Progressive Technology with providing a solution that incorporates both flexibility and scalability.

To meet these needs Progressive Technology upgraded GCB’s IT infrastructure to support virtualization using Microsoft’s Hyper-V technology. As a result, Georgia Commerce gained the resources necessary to continue their expansion while maintaining an uninterrupted and efficient infrastructure environment. Because of several limitations of a hosted e-mail environment, e-mail was migrated to on-premise Microsoft Exchange 2010 servers. A Citrix environment was also incorporated that included solutions for load balancing and failover. By doing this, Georgia Commerce gained the ability to bring new branches online very quickly and more securely with the use of thin clients at the desktop level. This solution continues to offer them considerable cost savings as they continue to grow as a successful bank.
