Menigo, helhetsleverantören för professionell kokkonst, väljer DH2i:s applikationsvirtualisering för Microsoft SQL server

-- DxConsole 2012R2 aktiverar Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Enterprise-klass "Always-On" kapacitet, till en bråkdel av kostnaden - och förbättrar hanteringen av applikationer genom fysiska, virtuella och molnets datamiljö

FORT COLLINS, Colorado, Dec. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- DH2i™ Company, världens ledande leverantör av icke-hypervisor baserade lösningar för applikationsvirtualisering, rapporterade idag att Menigo, Sveriges ledande leverantör av professionella kulinariska produkter och tillbehör, har valt dess DxConsole™ 2012R2 för applikationsvirtualisering för att garantera "always-on" (alltid-på) kapacitet, liksom för att förenkla hantering, öka applikationernas stabilitet och öka produktiviteten för Menigo's mest affärskritiska, intäktsgenererande program - samtidigt som relaterade kostnader sänks med över 50%.

Menigo tog nyligen DH2i:s DxConsole i bruk i samband med en genomgripande teknologisk uppdatering.  En viktig del av den övergripande strategin hade varit att hitta en högtillgänglig (high availability, HA) Microsoft SQL Server-lösning för att ersätta det befintliga PolyServe-klustrets systemteknologi från Hewlett-Packard (HP), som hade tjänat ut sin roll.  Efter en period av omfattande forskning och testning, sammanställde projektledaren Martin Persson, IT-tekniker för server/datalager ett mycket detaljerat beslutsunderlag som förelades företagsledningen.  Beslutsunderlaget innehöll en mycket preciserad beskrivning av den rekommenderade totallösningen, stödd av en detaljerad analys av varje enskild teknologi som utvärderats av honom och hans team, tillsammans med alla tillhörande kostnader. 

DH2i:s DxConsole identifierades som den ideala lösningen för att maximera Menigos miljö för SQL-servern - även jämfört med Microsofts och lösningar från andra tredje partsleverantörer som övervägdes.  Medan DxConsoles ursprungliga attraktion låg i att den skulle ge samma enterprise-klass "always-on" kapacitet som erbjöds av Microsoft med dess SQL Server 2012, till en bråkdel av kostnaden, förseglades avtalet sedan Persson bevittnat DxConsoles övriga fördelar, inklusive förenklad datalagring, ökad applikationsstabilitet, produktivitetsförhöjning och en kostnadsbesparing på över 50%. 

"Det var egentligen ingen tvekan", kommenterade Persson.  "Programvaran för DH2i:s DxConsole vann överlag - först i fråga om kostnaden - det gäller ju vanligen pengarna, eller hur?  Men DxConsole slog fullständigt ut konkurrensen i fråga om särdrag och funktionsduglighet också."

"DH2i:s DxConsole har hjälpt oss att ytterligare förbättra vårt datacenter," fortsatte Persson.  "Medan servervirtualisering hjälpte oss att kontrollera hårdvaruförvärv och underhållskostnader, gjorde den ingenting för den grundläggande installationsmodellen för våra företagsapplikationer - tidigare, en per server.  Med DxConsole kan vi minska serverns totala programvara och utnyttja de resulterande fördelarna, såsom skapelsen av en centraliserad molnplattform för att stötta våra mest affärskritiska, intäktsgenererande applikationer, liksom ökande programmobilitet, enkel hantering och en dramatisk minskning av relaterade kostnader."  Han avslutade, "Det gläder mig att kunna rapportera att DxConsole har utfört exakt vad som lovats!"

"Medan den 50%-iga kostnadsbesparingen helt klart fångade Martins intresse, liksom företagsledningens, valdes DxConsole slutligen för att den skulle bidra till att Menigo kunde fortsätta att ge sina kunder inom restaurangnäring, offentlig verksamhet, kedjor, och servicebutiker möjlighet att göra beställningar 24x7; och samtidigt ge dess anställda oavbruten tillgång till sitt affärskritiska datalager - detta var särskilt viktig eftersom en av Menigos specialiteter är färsk mat, sade Don Boxley, en av grundarna och VD vid DH2i. "Dessutom, eftersom applikationer nu automatiskt eller manuellt kan föras över till vilken server som helst på mindre än 30 sekunder, uppnås maximal hög tillgänglighet (High availability, HA), utan att hårdvaran behöver ökas.  I händelse av ett fel kan Menigo bara ange den fysiska, virtuella eller molnserver som programmet ska startas om på, vilket eliminerar driftavbrott och säkerställer verksamhetens kontinuitet."

Menigos uppdaterade datacenter, som tjänar mer än 1 000 användare från över 650 kunder, består nu av DH2i:s DxConsoles programvara för applikationsvirtualisering, Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft SharePoint, HP BladeSystem servers, HP LeftHand P4000 Disk Storage och klustrad VMware. Denna infrastruktur stöder såväl icke-kritisk, som Menigos mest affärskritiska applikationer - inklusive dess website, ehandel- och logistiksystem.  För att bevara dynamiken, installerades DxConsole virtuellt, i kontrast till på en fysisk plattform, som var fallet med den tidigare PolyServe-teknologin.

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now.

How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
