Anagram Stockbroking Limited Standardizes and Supercharges Its IT Environment by Consolidating Onto an IBM BladeCenter Solution
Anagram had been struggling with the maintenance and management of its decentralized, heterogeneous server environment. Consequently, the company's IT infrastructure had room for improvement when it came to system availability. Because the business required stable, high-performance servers to facilitate speedy transaction times, Anagram sought a new, homogeneous IT environment. Anagram consolidated its existing servers onto an IBM BladeCenter HS21 environment. The high-density servers reside in an IBM BladeCenter E chassis and leverage Intel Xeon processors to run the client's customized stock-market applications. By using a rack setup, the BladeCenter solution helps reduce power and cooling costs without sacrificing performance.
