Arsys is a leading Spanish provider of hosted IT services with over 250,000 small and medium-sized customers across 100 countries and a core of enterprise-size customers. Its services range from hosting websites to cloud computing, managed hosting, and IT infrastructure solutions. This also includes application delivery, back-up, and systems management. The company wanted to significantly expand its cloud-based services, specifically its infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) offering, so its customers could benefit from lower IT costs, greater flexibility, and always-available services. It turned to a platform consisting of IBM System x3850 X5* servers powered by Intel® Xeon® processors 7500 series and the Intel® Xeon® processor E7 family.
“The development of this cloud computing platform has generated important benefits from the business perspective… [and] has allowed us to reduce power consumption by 20 percent and significantly reduce our operational costs,” said Olof Sandstrom, chief operations officer for Arsys.
