With growing demand for a hosted version of its asset-based lending solution, Dancerace wanted to find a more flexible and compact alternative to its existing infrastructure. Outstanding reliability and scalability were the prime requirements; Dancerace's clients are also increasingly interested in green credentials. REAL Solutions, an IBM Premier Business Partner, worked with IBM Express Advantage to create an integrated solution for Dancerace, based around IBM i 6.1 operating system logical partitions running on two IBM BladeCenter JS12 servers in a BladeCenter H chassis, and a SAN based on IBM System Storage DS4800 storage and an LTO4 tape drive.
