Fujitsu Technology Solutions has partnered with Tata Consultancy Services to deliver a PRIMERGY BladeFrame-based dynamic infrastructure to Phones4U, alongside NetApp V-Series storage.
As costs for its incumbent infrastructure rose, Phones4U turned to Tata Consultancy Services - they made a joint bid with Fujitsu and delivered an option whereby they would continue to manage the new infrastructure but Phones4U would retain ownership of IT assets. This new model will be initially applied to the two Phones4U data centres housing the Siebel retail trading platform Two PRIMERGY BladeFrame BF400 units will form the heart of the new platform. These will offer a total of 40 two- and four-socket pBlades alongside two 8TB NetApp V-series appliances.
Steve Johnson, director of IT strategy at Phones4U, comments: "Fujitsu BladeFrame delivers a cost-effective hardware solution that supports open systems and delivers significantly reduced operating costs. Crucially the technology means we can dynamically reuse capability for development and testing of new services and gives us scalability for long-term growth.
