Constructing a Strong Foundation: Stramit and Evolution Systems

 

Stramit small  

Overview

Business Challenge

After six years, Stramit’s production Power 5 model 550 server was starting to struggle with the increased workload and a recent upgrade of their ERP. To ensure these performance issues did not impact client satisfaction or employee productivity, Stramit engaged with IBM Advanced Business Partner Evolution Systems to assess the available options.


Solution

Stramit were using two Power 550 servers, with internal storage, for production and DR. After initial assessment, IBM Advanced Business Partner Evolution Systems determined it was more cost effective to replace the server, than to upgrade the current Windows and i environments.

IBM Advanced Business Partner Evolution Systems proposed utilising an IBM Power 740 Express for Stramit's production and an IBM Power 720 Express for DR. The existing Windows HP SAN was replaced with an IBM Storwize® V5000. This meant Stramit were able to gain significant savings by consolidating their storage.
