Mediaprint Transforms IT And Streamlines Editorial Operations With EMC

Stocks in this article: EMC

Customer Quotes:

Ferdinand Karner , Head of Department, Systems and Database Services, Mediaprint

"SAP and Oracle are our most important business systems. Some companies fear virtualizing such critical applications, but the integration across our EMC and VMware environments gave us the confidence to virtualize SAP and Oracle and ultimately all of our enterprise applications."

"We looked at several options, but only EMC had the right combination of performance, availability and ease of management that enabled us to rapidly virtualize our infrastructure. In just 18 months, we have increased the number of virtual machines by 8X."

"With EMC and VMware, we've seen a 300% improvement in response times for some SAP applications and performance of our Oracle data warehouses have increased by 500%. Editorial and business staff can work faster so that important news stories and advertising copy are delivered quickly and efficiently."

"VPLEX Metro allows us to run applications at full tilt from either of our two data centers simultaneously even though they're 26 kilometers apart. Every part of our editorial system is time-critical. And without our logistics system we can't print newspapers. Any downtime or delay can mean loss of revenue. VPLEX Metro was the only solution that fit our needs because it provides full redundancy across both data center without a single point of failure. We now have five-nines availability and our latency is just one millisecond, which is excellent."

"We have a small IT department and can't spend all day administering storage. Using the FAST Suite, we don't have to worry about prioritizing our Flash drives for our most demanding applications — it's all done automatically, and the administrative interface with VNX is simple to use. So we get a performance boost and more time for IT projects that help streamline and accelerate our publishing operations."
