Infotech Lead America: Dedicated hosting and co-location services provider Redstation has posted 70 percent growth, thanks to Dell servers.
For Redstation, Dell PowerEdge 12th generation servers are the backbone of its IT strategy and dedicated infrastructure and cloud services.
The company selected Dell PowerEdge servers following a competitive analysis against HP and Supermicro.
Thanks to Dell servers, Redstation achieved improved scalability, memory density and storage capacity with Dell PowerEdge R720xd servers and PowerVault storage.
The company has achieved 72 percent reduction in power cost with the new infrastructure in place compared with its legacy infrastructure, allowing for an improved density per footprint without increased power costs.
Interestingly, Redstation offers cost effective solutions to customers as it is benefitting from cost reductions.
Martin Groom, managing director, Redstation, said: “We get exceptional business value from Dell solutions. Dell’s enterprise portfolio is always evolving to meet the changing needs of our business which means that we can trust in the technology we invest in both in the short and long term.”
Redstation has virtualized the majority of its Dell servers using VMware ESXi5.1 server virtualization software and, following the project’s completion, troubleshooting time for its clients’ has been reduced by up to 80 percent.
Dell’s remote Access Controller 7 (iDRAC7) with Lifecycle Controller stores log files and systems errors so Redstation no longer has to log on to its customers’ machines in order to run diagnostic tests. Redstation can locate a problem and replace the faulty component within minutes.
Redstation is upgrading its facilities and works with Dell to deliver world-class technology, help increase performance and reduce costs. The stability of the Dell infrastructure helps ensure that Redstation is able to meet its customer service-level agreements.
“Customers such as Redstation are turning to us because of our track record and established expertise in reducing infrastructure complexity while increasing performance and lower costs,” said Aisling Keegan, general manager and executive director for Preferred Accounts, Dell UK.
