IT Hosting Company on Line do Brasil Nourishes Its Growing Business With an Energy-Efficient and Cost-Effective IT Platform From IBM
On Line do Brasil is a service and hosting provider for midsize and small companies. After experiencing rapid growth for more than three years, On Line do Brasil needed to expand its data center operations, which no longer had the power, efficiency or scalability to support the hosting provider's flourishing business. On Line do Brasil sought a solution that would help it expand its data center while providing energy efficiency, advanced management capabilities and high availability for its customers. To address its system performance limitations, On Line do Brasil engaged IBM to consolidate its existing systems onto three IBM BladeCenter HS21 XM servers housed in an IBM BladeCenter E chassis. The systems feature excellent energy management, integrated management tools and ideal rack-to-blade conversion for optimized efficiency.
