Rebate Fulfillment Firm Cuts Costs, Boosts Performance
Young America was founded in 1972 to help three Minnesota businesses fulfill their customer rebate offers and other types of marketing promotions. Their challenges are to increase data center capacity to handle growing volume of incoming business, improve availability to meet requirements for Service-Level Agreements (SLAs) and enhance performance to boost employee productivity and customer satisfaction. They chose Cisco to overcome these challenges. Cisco Unified Computing System integrates resources into single converged system and Cisco UCS B-Series Blade Servers improve enterprise application availability and performance. The results of deploying Cisco were boosted server virtualization rate from 20 to 97 percent and reduced power consumption by 94 percent.
