Unified Computing Platform Makes Server Allocation Around 60 Times Faster
DATEV eG offers software solutions and IT services across Europe for tax advisers, accountants and attorneys, as well as their clients. DATEV wanted a modern, easy-to-manage, failsafe, cost-saving and future-proof infrastructure solution that would integrate well within its existing rack server environment. The personalized infrastructure solution is based on a Vblock with Cisco components from the Cisco manufacturing consortium (Cisco Nexus and Unified Computing System), VMware (virtualization framework) and EMC (storage system). The benefits they gained were servers made available 40 to 80 times faster, human resource costs reduced by 20%, energy cost savings of 30% and smaller floor space required in data center.
