Energy Management Firm Builds Dynamic, Scalable Data Center
Source: Cisco Systems
Comverge grew out of a merger of technology groups from Scientific Atlanta, Lucent/Bell Labs, and PowerCom. Their challenges are to overcome scalability limitations of physical servers, accelerate server provisioning to scale in unison with customer field deployments and help ensure resilient operations with geographic redundancy. They chose Cisco to overcome these challenges. Cisco Unified Computing System provides horizontal and vertical scalability, Cisco B-Series Blade Servers offer high memory density on small footprint and Cisco ASA 5500 Adaptive Security Appliance delivers robust security. The results of deploying Cisco Unified Computing System saved as much as US$200,000 in VMware licensing costs, reduced rack servers from 25 to 6 and gained more scalable, reliable, resilient architecture.
