Business need
Executives wanted to reduce business risk by implementing a full backup and recovery solution, securing precious SAP application data.

Implemented a suite of IBM hardware and software designed to reduce IT complexity, introduce automated business continuity and recovery services, and cut the total cost of operation.

Reduced the number of servers by more than 70 percent and cut the hardware footprint by 75 percent, from four racks to just one. Automated systems management solutions have reduced IT staff workload, freeing them for more productive tasks. Monthly costs have been reduced by more than 20 percent and are expected to be reduced further through higher consolidation and storage optimization.
