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.

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications. This rich data, or “context,” enables the highly personalized consumer experiences that characterize many consumer IoT apps. This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Treloar, President and COO of Bebaio, will explore examples of brands transforming their businesses by t...

For IoT to grow as quickly as analyst firms’ project, a lot is going to fall on developers to quickly bring applications to market. But the lack of a standard development platform threatens to slow growth and make application development more time consuming and costly, much like we’ve seen in the mobile space. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mike Weiner, Product Manager of the Omega DevCloud with KORE Telematics Inc., discussed the evolving requirements for developers as IoT matures and conducted a live demonstration of how quickly application development can happen when the need to comply wit...

Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Red Hat's Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems, described how to revolutionize your archit...
