Philippe Picalausa, IT Manager, Partena
"We operate under strict SLAs and government regulations that require us to generate payroll and other employee services within specified time periods. With EMC VPLEX, we're able to run all our applications in an active-active mode across two separate data centers. If a server fails, the application continues to run at the alternate site without any disruption to our users and customers."
"Our EMC infrastructure is absolutely critical to the smooth and reliable operation of our business. In fact, since we've been using EMC storage, we haven't had any storage-related downtime. Now we've added VPLEX, enabling us to increase security and protection by eliminating infrastructure downtime.""The tight integration between our VMware and VNX environments has reduced administration time by 50%, which in turn has freed our IT staff to focus on more critical projects. Rapid virtualization combined with VNX's excellent performance and simplified management has reduced our IT operational and capital expenditures by 60%." "Our business is much more agile now that we've virtualized with VMware and EMC. We can deploy new applications in a few days versus the month it took us before. That's a 90% reduction in time. It's very easy to create proofs of concepts, test scenarios and other environments to develop new services and features that help expand the business and improve customer satisfaction." "When we initially virtualized desktops at the branch level, we discovered how much easier it is to manage virtual desktops compared to physical PCs and laptops. For example, we can distribute upgrades faster with just a few clicks. And users can boot up their virtual desktops more quickly." Additional Resources:
