ZURICH, May 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- IBM (NYSE: IBM) today announced that Cyber Network, a Swiss managed services provider (MSP) based in Geneva, has chosen IBM Flex Systems and storage to upgrade its IT infrastructure and grow its cloud business. The integrated design and management capabilities in Flex Systems will help Cyber Network to spend less time on IT maintenance and support and devote these resources to provide lower-cost services for its growing numbers of cloud-based customers.

As a result of this deployment, Cyber Network will be able to focus on expanding its business by improving services to meet evolving customer requirements.

"The IBM Flex System gives us excellent performance and a significant amount of headroom for the future," said Marco Tricarico, Chief Technology Officer, Cyber Network. "The technology enables Cyber Network to offer our clients a resilient, high-performance cloud platform for their business-critical applications."

Cyber Network offers a full range of IT hosting and connectivity services to corporate clients, with a particular focus on the financial services and insurance industries. As the number of clients utilizing its cloud platform expanded, Cyber Network recognized that it needed to invest in a new infrastructure that would offer better scalability and assure business continuity.

To ensure high resilience for its clients' hosted environments the company deployed a  Flex System and Storwize V7000 storage system solution in each of its two Geneva data centers. Beyond the clear improvements in performance for both servers and storage, the key benefit offered by the Flex System is greater scalability – both in terms of the capacity of the system and its ease of management.

"Management is the real difference between Flex System and other options," said Marco Tricarico. "With Flex System Manager, we can control all the elements of the infrastructure. This single point of control will save us considerable time and effort, meaning that our investment in Flex System will translate into lower cost per client."

The IBM Flex System goes beyond competitor's blade configurations and provides the building-block elements for IBM PureSystems.  IBM Flex Systems are built-to-order offerings for clients who want to custom build and tune configurations to their specific requirements. This allows them to select the specific compute, systems networking and optional storage and management required to support their specific workloads.
