Evalueserve Selects IBM to Build a Private Cloud Environment
May 13, 2014
Evalueserve.com Pvt. Ltd, a global knowledge-process-outsourcing company, recently selected IBM (News - Alert) to build a private cloud environment that supports a virtual desktop infrastructure for its 2,000 employees.
The company’s employees required timely access to client applications and data to offer consulting, research and analytics services via a global network of knowledge centers in Chile, China, India, and Romania.
Evalueserve was finding it difficult to keep pace with the changing needs of its clients, which was causing a strain on its existing server and storage resources. Thus, in order to cater to its needs, the company opted for IBM as the viable option.
"Operating at maximum capacity, our server and storage resources were finding it hard to keep up with our growing business needs," said Sachin Jain, CIO, Evalueserve, in a press statement. "IBM helped us create a scalable and flexible cloud infrastructure which can easily support our growth for the next 10 years."
IBM collaborated with its business partner, Avnet Electronics Marketing Asia, and IBM Premier Business Partner Integrated Tech9labs Pvt. Ltd., to develop a private cloud solution using IBM Systems Storage and the IBM Virtual Desktop for Smart Business solution.
The upgraded IT platform supports a private cloud and a virtual desktop infrastructure for around 2,000 users.
Evalueserve, with the help of the new platform, was able to optimize existing infrastructure resources in a virtualized environment, which provided its employees quicker access to client research data.
They were also able to reduce energy costs significantly, leading to improved ROI on existing IT infrastructure.
Furthermore, using IBM platform, Evalueserve reported an overall reduction in the management effort needed for creation of VDI.
Richard Smith, General Manager of Systems & Technology Group at IBM Asia Pacific, said: "IBM technology creates a resilient, high-performance IT infrastructure for Evalueserve which in turn enables their employees to access data quickly."
