The community speaks
“Running VMware vCenter on the IBM BladeCenter platform gives us a very cost-effective way of ensuring high availability for our mission-critical SAP and DB2 environments.”
- Nelson Chan, Head of the IT department, Sabah Credit Corporation
"With the XIV and BladeCenter solution in place, we are now ideally positioned to implement useful business analytics applications, which will bring crucial efficiencies to some of our planning and scheduling processes. This is what we should now aspire to; and this kind of innovation is certainly what Cnam is about – using IT innovations to assist and enhance business operations."
- Denis Corée, Chief Information Officer, Cnam
"The combination of IBM BladeCenter, XIV and System Storage technologies has given us a compact, efficient, highly integrated platform for running our core business services for both SAP and Citrix-based applications.....This degree of centralization of services makes it absolutely vital to have a reliable, high-performance server infrastructure, which is exactly what the IBM solution has given us."
- Gaspar Rivera Del Valle, IT “Evolution” Director, AXTEL
“The IBM infrastructure is extremely available and resilient, and we have been able to prove this through several quality tests. In one occasion, for instance, we tried to take one blade out of the BladeCenter server while the machine was switched on: we were absolutely amazed by the fact that operations continued smoothly. This happens because, if one blade fails, the workload is automatically shifted to the remaining blades, allowing the processes – and, therefore, our business and services – to continue working.”
- Roberto Felline, Manager of the IT Department, Meltin’ Pot
“Deploying a combination of IBM BladeCenter and System x servers makes it possible for us to match workloads to the best possible platform, optimizing performance and ensuring we meet clients’ specific security requirements.”
- Steve Groom, Chief Executive Officer, Vissensa
