New Data Center Construction
In the course of the new data center construction, which had become necessary due to the growth in recent years, Volkswagen Financial Services created the basis for data center consolidation.
Thanks to the use of the flight cases, we received a full-service package which allowed us to concentrate on our project planning and co-ordination. With VWFS’s specifications, this was an ideal way for us to get sensitive IT components into our data centers on time and efficientlyPascal Heinichen, Head of Data Center Operations, Volkswagen Financial Services AG – Digital Solutions GmbH
ObjectiveThe new network and security components should be installed in the existing racks with as little effort as possible. The limited space and storage capacities in the existing data center made it necessary to relocate the preparatory activities to the Computacenter premises.
Computacenter has a solution for the packaging-free delivery of IT infrastructure components for equipping the racks in the customer's data centers. This solution has been used in full at Volkswagen Financial Services.
Installation and configuration of 19” appliances in rollable and extra secured cases in the central integration center of Computacenter and subsequent delivery to the customer locations.
Highly efficient transfer of the IT infrastructure components to the data centers of Volkswagen Financial Services - from ordering hardware to equipping the racks.
