The challenge
mChek's business relies on its ability to rapidly deliver mobile solutions which address specific customer requirements. Because of the consumer-led nature of the services it offers, the transaction volumes handled by mChek systems are very unpredictable, with bursts of activity and high transaction peaks. This demands a proven mix of robust computing power and flexible processing capacity not available from traditional big-box servers.


According to mChek CTO Steven Atkinson, “Traditional server architectures were simply too inflexible for our needs and our customers' needs. Many of our services are consumer-led and can generate huge transaction volumes very quickly. This means our hardware and processing platforms have to scale rapidly to suit the application with minimal management.”

As a result, Atkinson and his team evaluated blade server options. mChek chose the PRIMERGY BladeFrame system, which was deployed by technology integrator Morse in early 2003. “We found that the BladeFrame offers a better price/performance ratio and is more mature than other solutions on the market,” Atkinson noted. “Also, PRIMERGY's track record is impressive.”
