The challenge for Carlin Music was to improve performance and increase capacity of core financial and music royalty management systems; create more robust and scalable infrastructure; expand Intel® processor-based server landscape without increasing power consumption, heat output and floorspace requirements.
The Northdoor Solution
Carlin opted to work with Northdoor to optimise both parts of its IT infrastructure. The first stage was to implement a new IBM System i525 and migrate the existing software to it. Northdoor handled every step, from the sizing and configuration of the i525, through to physical installation and software migration.
- Significant performance increase with i525 – a business process that previously took two hours to run now completes in just 35 minutes
- x3550 servers with virtualisation reduce power consumption and heat output while enabling growth in server numbers.
