Zopa: Microsoft SQL Server Performance Tuning & Support
Since 2005 Zopa has experienced phenomenal growth and has grown its business to more than 63,000 lenders and 150,000 borrowers. The Microsoft SQL Server Database was seen as an area to be looked at in order to manage this growth, with a possible upgrade to Enterprise Edition licensing.
“We wanted to implement a long-term solution to strengthen our platform’s performance which would enable Zopa to deliver against an aggressive growth strategy,” said Jonathan Binns, Head of Infrastructure at Zopa.

Jonathan was especially impressed with how smoothly DSP-Explorer were about to fix Zopa's issues: “We live and breathe this every day but it was really impressive how quickly DSP-Explorer got on board with our systems and processes in order to start delivering results from the outset.”
The performance review was completed on time and on budget and identified 6 key areas to be optimised. The subsequent consultancy has already delivered a 25% performance boost to the daily load, freeing up more than three hours a day.
