Cegal is an IT solutions provider that focuses on the oil and gas industry. The oil and gas industry needs reliable IT solutions, even at remote sites where space is at a premium. Cegal wanted a platform that could support its oil and gas solutions despite these constraints. Cegal took the strategic step to move from IBM BladeCenter to IBM Flex System, developing a new compact \"Datacenter-in-a-box\" concept that can be deployed and scaled quickly at customer locations. With three times faster deployment and 20 percent lower total cost of ownership than Cegal's previous infrastructure offering, the Flex System accelerates time-to-value for both Cegal and its customers.
