DH2i: Menigo Deploys DxConsole
Dec 11, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
DH2i Company, a provider of hypervisor-less application virtualization solutions, announced that Menigo, a provider of culinary arts products and supplies, has deployed its DxConsole 2012R2 application virtualization solution.
According to a release, the project leader, Martin Persson, IT Technician Server/Storage, compiled and presented a highly detailed Decision Matrix to management.
"It was really no contest," said Persson. "DH2i's DxConsole software won across the board starting with cost it's usually about the money, right However, DxConsole completely beat the competition on features and functionality as well.
"DH2i's DxConsole has helped to take our data center to the next level. While server virtualization helped us to control hardware acquisitions and maintenance costs, it did nothing for the basic deployment model for our enterprise applications which was previously, one instance per host. With DxConsole, we are able to reduce the overall host software stack, and enjoy the resulting advantages such as the creation of a centralized cloud platform to support our most business critical, revenue generating applications, as well as increased application instance mobility, ease of management, and a dramatic decrease in related expenditures. I am happy to report that DxConsole has performed exactly as promised."
"While the over 50 percent cost reduction certainly caught Martin's attention, as well as that of his executive management, ultimately DxConsole was chosen as it would help to ensure Menigo continued to provide its restaurant, public, chain and convenience store customers with 24x7 ordering access; as well as its employees with uninterrupted access to its business critical data warehouse this was especially important as one of Menigo's specialties is fresh food," said Don Boxley, Co-Founder and CEO of DH2i. "Moreover, as application instances can now be automatically or manually moved to any server in less than 30 seconds, maximum high availability is achieved, without the need to double-up on hardware. Menigo can simply specify the physical, virtual or cloud server on which the application instance should be restarted, in the event of a failure, in order to eliminate downtime and ensure business continuity."
Menigo's refreshed data center is now comprised of DH2i's DxConsole application virtualization software, Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft SharePoint, HP BladeSystem Servers, HP LeftHand P4000 Disk Storage and clustered VMware.
Menigo is a subsidiary of Brakes Group.
