Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) announced that Steel Authority of India (SAIL), the largest steel producer in India, has selected the HPE GreenLake edge-to-cloud platform for its Central Marketing Organization (CMO).
SAIL’s CMO organization is backed by a robust ERP system running on HPE technology which underpins all business-critical applications and processes from lead generation to shipment and enables SAIL to deliver quality steel.
Prior to the HPE GreenLake platform migration, SAIL’s existing infrastructure was reaching end of life and they needed to prepare for a migration to S/4 HANA and improve application availability and business continuity.
SAIL selected the HPE GreenLake edge-to-cloud platform to accelerate their digital transformation and deliver an on-premises cloud with capacity available on demand. HPE Pointnext Services worked with SAIL to manage the system integration project and implementation.
HPE designed a new architecture based on open standards together with a complete storage refresh. HPE team delivered a seamless Unix to Linux migration with minimal upfront investment and application downtime. The modernized environment lowered the datacenter footprint and has resulted in reduced power consumption and improved operating costs.
“Customers are turning to HPE GreenLake and our extensive system integrator capabilities to design and implement a modernized, end-to-end solution that can support their digital transformation and easily scale to meet future requirements,” Som Satsangi, managing director, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, India, said.
The HPE GreenLake platform delivers the cloud experience through a pay-per-use model while meeting compliance and regulatory requirements with the data remaining on-premises. HPE GreenLake Central gives SAIL a dashboard to monitor and plan the daily consumption of IT to provide complete visibility of IT spend to improve budget planning and forecasting.
