DSME selects IBM to build IT environmentComtex News Network
Sep 22, 2012 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering, or DSME, has engaged IBM to build an IT environment around IBM's advanced storage systems to help the company manage its big data challenges.
"With a vision of becoming the top general heavy industry group in the world, DSME aims to drive business transformation and innovation for continued growth," said Seung uk So, Leader of the DSME IT Planning Group. "We look at IT as a strategic imperative for our business aspirations and wanted to work with a service provider that shares our vision and passion. Our engagement with IBM would help create a sophisticated storage environment, a critical infrastructure requirement in this age of data explosion."
IBM will help DSME create a storage infrastructure built around four IBM XIV Gen3 high end disk storage systems and the IBM Storwize V7000 virtualized storage system. The systems will integrate with the DSME's core business applications, including mail service, enterprise resource management (ERP) and database management, among others, and manage the company's 255TB of data. The computing solution will not only create an integrated storage environment for DMSE to analyze and use data, but ensure readiness for disaster recovery, IBM said.
"IBM is working with organizations across the world to help them build efficient IT environments and enhance operational efficiency," said Hyungsuk Kim, IBM Korea storage business director. "By establishing the XIV storage system, DSME will overcome existing storage performance limitations and enjoy the benefits of improved performance and cost reduction. We are excited to be able to contribute to DSME's long term vision and growth plans."http://www.datamonitor.comRepublication or redistribution, including by framing or similar means,is expressly prohibited without prior written consent.
