BTC Group invests in Virtual Desktop Infrastructure and gains a Powerful Business Development Tool

Viktor Nikonov, IT Director, BTC Group

The customer

BTC Group is Russia’s largest light industry holding, specializing in the development, production and subsequent sale of high-tech clothing for various business sectors.

BTC Group operates its own high-tech production base, which includes businesses located in St Petersburg, Leningrad Region (Vsevolozhsk, Boksitogorsk, Podporozhye), Rostov Region (Shakhty, Salsk), South Ossetia (Tskhinval), Belarus (Brest), Tula Region (Kireevsk, Dubna) and Kursk Region (Zheleznogorsk).

The challenge

In connection with the development of the Russian light industry holding BTC Group, the need arose to create a virtualized data center. The previous data center, given the obsolete workstations and servers, was no longer able to cope with the existing workload and was too costly in terms of user support. The task put to the contractor was to build a new platform, to conform to the BTC Group’s long-term IT system development strategy, which would account for enhanced requirements for safety and standardization and would reduce user support costs.

The solution

Fujitsu was chosen as the equipment supplier for the project implementation, involving servers and data storage systems. Fujitsu has rich experience in the creation of such facilities to meet the custom orders of Russian and foreign companies alike.

The benefits

  • Cutting energy consumption and reducing operating expenditure
  • Enhancement of user efficiency
  • A high level of safety
