Challenges

  • Need to quickly vacate data centers and migrate to new storage solutions
  • Need to integrate disparate databases and storage silos post acquisition
  • Previous mix of storage solutions, required lengthy deployment times with astronomical costs.

Solutions

  • Tintri VMstore and Cisco UCS servers
  • Tintri Global Center
  • Cisco UCS Director with Tintri VMstore plug-in

Results

  • Ability to centrally manage compute, network, and storage
  • See performance level of every application across the entire infrastructure
  • Since Tintri and Cisco UCS can be scaled independently, the data center can grow incrementally as needed.
  • Takeda was able to terminate managed services contracts and significantly reduce management costs.
Case Study - Takeda

“With VMstore and Cisco UCS we were able to terminate our managed services contracts—now it takes just one person a quarter of the time to manage a footprint that spans multiple data centers. Growing our footprint without adding management burden is a requirement for our enterprise cloud.”
