Natural health business in excellent shape with IBM POWER7 Server and Storage


Business challenge
After six years, natural health brand Blackmores’ IBM® Power® 550 System server was nearing capacity and beginning to run vital enterprise applications inefficiently. The company wanted a cost-effective replacement that boosted performance and capacity.

With the help of IBM Business Partner* Evolution Systems, Blackmores chose an IBM Power 740 Express® server with four POWER7® processors, and an IBM Storwize® V7000 storage system with 11 terabytes of capacity.

Business Benefits
• Reduced processing times dramatically
• Saved $45,000 in total ownership costs
• Improved system responsiveness and user experience
• Minimised business and regulatory risk
• Increased storage capacity for future growth
