Cisco Cloud Addresses IT Demands for Industrial Training Institute
Industrial training institute, SENAI Santa Catarina, has deployed the Cisco Unified Computing System and will use it to support the 35 SENAI branches in the state of Santa Catarina.
The institution was searching for a solution with which it could expand its server farm to address the burgeoning IT requirements.
“One of the reasons for adoption of the Cisco Unified Computing System was the ability to attack all items of complexity with a unified solution,” said Rafael Silva, project manager of Teltec Networks, a Cisco Premier Certified Partner, responsible for designing and selling the solution.
Cisco cloud solution is able to rapidly provision services, thanks to its ability to integrate the environments of local area and storage networks, which reduces complexity in the data center environment.
The Cisco Unified Computing System is expected to reduce the time required for the provisioning of services from eight hours to one, according to Paulo Alberto Violada, the IT coordinator at SENAI Santa Catarina.
Cisco claims that it will handle preventive maintenance during business hours, without interruption or degradation of service quality.
This solution has brought other gains as well- the industrial training institute will now enjoy increased speed of communication in the data center through integration of the Cisco Unified Computing Center and the Cisco Nexus 5000 platform.
It will also benefit from the ease and simplicity of the computing environment, and a reduction in energy consumption.
“Being an early adopter means putting trust in a manufacturer like Cisco,” said Marco Antonio Dociatti, director of the SENAI Santa Catarina. “The changes are being made to provide a market differentiator in serving our customers.”
“After the final phase of installation,” said the commercial director at Cisco Brazil, Marco Sena. “ We believe that this project represents an innovative and successful case for Cisco as well as Teltec.”
