Creating an efficient and reliable IT infrastructure based on technologically advanced and state-of-the-art equipment. It was substantial to ensure the high flexibility of the offered server and array solution by allowing for a dynamic reconfiguration of the environment. The goal was to achieve an environment offering high development possibilities while decreasing the power consumption and reducing the space used in the company’s server rooms.
