Executive Summary

Sentry Data Systems' (Sentry) core infrastructure required substantial computing power and high-speed storage. Four difficult-to-administer racks of large servers supported the company's day-to-day business processes, costing much energy, effort and money to run. Sentry wanted to accommodate its growing business while simplifying the design and administration of its underlying IT infrastructure. Sentry began by consolidating on an IBM BladeCenter H chassis that supports 14 IBM BladeCenter HS21 servers running the Red Hat Linux operating system. The new solution greatly simplifies system administration by enabling the company to access and manage all hardware remotely from a single console. All cabling is integrated within the BladeCenter technology, reducing the amount of wires previously needed for power and remote access.
