Select a topic or year

Munich / Stuttgart-Ehningen - 25 Oct 2013: IBM (NYSE: IBM) today announced that TecDAX listed company CANCOM SE will use PureSystems to provide its CANCOM AHP Private Cloud Desktop solution.

The CANCOM AHP Private Cloud will provide remote access to corporate applications and data using any device that is connected to the internet, providing a mobile and flexible IT workplace for their clients. The high degree of standardization and automation that the CANCOM AHP Private Cloud provides helps clients to maximize their resources and lower their operational costs.

"A flexible infrastructure is the basis for a successful private cloud environment, and to enable the virtualization, consolidation, security and manageability of the system is very important,” said Manfred Hoevel, Senior Vice President at CANCOM. “For our customers, the IBM PureSystems platform provides the perfect complement to our Private Cloud Architecture." 

CANCOM has implemented an IBM PureFlex System configured with both IBM Power Systems and x-86 based compute nodes. This allows them to reduce cost and complexity for the company, removing the need to purchase, install and manage separate infrastructures for these environments. Networking is provided by an integrated IBM Flex System Fabric Switch connected to an IBM RackSwitch solution.  

The flexibility provided by PureSystems means that CANCOM’s data center can better respond to changes in demand and provide dynamic application and virtual desktop environments even when deploying services to remote offices. 

Headquartered in Munich, Germany, CANCOM is one of the largest IT providers in Germany. The comprehensive product and service portfolio ranges from consulting and the design of IT architecture for the procurement and integration to operation of the systems. For more information on CANCOM, visit:
