ABOUT & BACKGROUND
Established in 1880, Provident Financial Ltd is one of the
UK’s leading suppliers of personal credit products to the
non-standard lending market. The company serves over 2.7
million customers through a network of over 400 branches,
administration offices, call centres & websites.
Provident used the move of its Bradford head office as an
opportunity to reassess its IT infrastructure and decided to
relocate its data centre, which was previously onsite.
CHALLENGE
The company were looking for a provider that would help
facilitate the move by providing a resilient data centre,
secure enough to host all their vital data. It was also
important that the data centre was within a close proximity
to enable technicians to gain easy access.
Provident had a large server estate containing lots of dated
equipment with a number of large enterprise class storage
arrays & the data on there was crucial to the business.
Provident had just one weekend to make the transition.
SOLUTION
Node4 were selected as the data centre provider due to the
ideal location of their Leeds data centre.

infrastructure spanning two sites, also providing a wide area
network, connecting the two data centres resiliently whilst

included, meaning Node4’s technical team are able to carry
out minor tasks, so frequent trips to the data centre aren’t
necessary.

the sort of value-add & the
confidence that we get from the
Node4 team is exceptional.”
