Thermax Ltd Chooses IBM PureSystems And SmartCloud Over Cisco And Dell

BANGALORE, India, June 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --   IBM (NYSE: IBM) today announced that Thermax Limited has selected an IBM Smarter Computing solution to serve as both a consolidation platform for existing services and a cloud environment to test and develop new solutions.

Thermax is a strategic partner to industry and business in the energy and environmental sectors , designing, implementing and maintaining a range of engineering solutions that ensure reliable and efficient client operations. Thermax chose IBM SmartCloud and PureSystems over solutions from Cisco and Dell, allowing the company to strengthen its IT infrastructure and enable its clients to operate at reduced cost and with greater safety, energy efficiency, reliability and flexibility.

With more than 30 offices in India and abroad, the company was quick to recognize changing market dynamics in energy and environmental sectors at home and worldwide. In India, business growth in diverse sectors such as cement, oil and gas, food processing, tires, textiles, and chemicals is fueling the emergence of a new set of medium-sized engineering organizations which demand a sustainable model to help them offer scalable solutions that do not require high initial costs and enable shorter development cycles. 

"With the new IBM solution, our employees can access the IT infrastructure anytime, anywhere, which allows them to provision new environments for our customers rapidly and at low incremental cost. It also speeds up and improves enormously the decision-making process." said Anil Nadkarni, CIO of Thermax. "IBM PureFlex makes it easy to manage key data centrally, enhancing the security and control of our operations. At the moment the solution is being rolled out to 1,000 users at Thermax's manufacturing facilities in Pune and Baroda and the power consumption has already decreased dramatically - by close 70-80 percent."

The implementation of IBM's SmartCloud on IBM PureSystems technology and Citrix XenApp server made Thermax's IT infrastructure more efficient, secure and continuously available. The full desktop operating system and applications are virtualized on highly reliable Flex System chassis with IBM Storwize V7000 storage, which offered simplified user experience and workload optimization features to help Thermax automate its resource allocation.
