Univar Extends Computing Capabilities With IBM System z9
Univar USA is the leading industrial chemical distributor in the United States, providing chemical products and distribution services. After acquiring a competitor and taking on additional workloads from other geographies, Univar USA faced an immediate need to upgrade its IT infrastructure to handle the increased data processing requirements. The company turned to IBM Premier Business Partner Sirius Computer Solutions for help in developing and implementing a new hardware solution. Univar USA replaced their existing IBM eServer zSeries 890 mainframe with an IBM System z9 Enterprise Class server.
