Evolving Solutions Deploys Server Consolidation at SISU Medical Systems Centralizes Storage, Reduces Cost & Streamlines Overall Management

Data on-demand expert, Evolving Solutions, helps SISU Medical Systems centralize storage and streamline IT management with a customized IBM Bladecenter Server Consolidation solution.

Minneapolis, MN, November 28 2005 -
Evolving Solutions, an IT Storage Architect and data on-demand expert, announced today that it has deployed a server consolidation solution at SISU Medical Systems to centralize storage and streamline overall IT management capabilities.

SISU Medical Systems, an application service provider (ASP) serving the healthcare industry, was running separate servers to perform tasks and had no centralized storage, no centralized back up and recovery, multiple brands of technology with multiple service agreements, and less- than-desired management capabilities.

"SISU engaged Evolving Solutions to deploy a solution that would help them achieve their goals of streamlined and cost effective IT management," said Hunt Russell, Director of Business Development, Evolving Solutions.

Evolving Solutions deployed a server consolidation solution that used IBM Bladecenter via a Fiber Channel based Storage Area Network (SAN).

"Evolving Solutions' service was very complete," said Mark Schmidt, SISU Medical Systems, "not only did they design and implement a customized solution for our specific storage needs, but they also offered full training and support."

Since implementing Evolving Solutions' server consolidation solution, SISU Medical Systems has experienced the following benefits:
  • Streamlined and more cost effective IT management
  • Centralized maintenance through IBM
  • Consolidation and optimization of server usage
