Filofax - Case Study

Filofax UK enable greater systems availability and improve backup processes with VMware server virtualisation.

System Professional originally met with Adam Lewis (Group IT Manager) at Filofax UK as part of his in-depth internal review of server virtualisation and storage options within the business.

Adam was at the early stages of assessing his end of life physical server estate and looking at specific challenges around storage performance and capacity. He explained that Filofax UK historically used Direct Attached Storage (DAS) and he wanted to explore the better performance and management available from SAN technologies.

Server virtualisation was of interest, since it could allow Filofax UK to consolidate the ageing server estate and use the high availability, improved management and DR benefits of VMware vSphere.
