Integrated System PRIMEFLEX vShape accelerates business processes and increases productivity at Locarent car rental

Customer

Established in 2003, Locarent is owned by Portuguese financial companies Novo Banco and Caixa Geral de Depósitos, with the two aiming to complement their portfolio through car hire. This enables them to take advantage of existing banking networks, thereby offering services at 1,200 branches and through 50 companies.

Challenge

Locarent’s aging heterogeneous IT infrastructure was a burden to manage and support, as well as featuring poor application performance. The company wanted to move to an entirely virtualized platform supplied by a single vendor.

Solution

Locarent worked with long-term partner Fujitsu to deploy two FUJITSU Integrated System PRIMEFLEX vShape solutions, which include highly scalable industry-standard components such as storage, networking and virtualization software.

Benefits

  • 95 percent reduction in failure thanks to improved SSD reliability
  • 40 percent reduction in energy consumption and the need for less actual space
  • 40- 95 percent increase in application performance
  • Significant reduction in maintenance has saved Locarent time and money
