"We saw an interest forming in products and joint, integrated solutions by Fujitsu and NetApp during a visit to the Fujitsu IT Future conference. In light of the lack of internal expertise in building a “private cloud” we relied completely on the recommendation of the manufacturer Fujitsu and the integrator Inforada. In July 2013 a joint project was launched, the results of which exceeded our expectations"

Farmasoft is a leading pharmaceutical company in Ukraine. It has rich experience, dealing in pharmaceutical logistics since 1999. Since 2005 the company has expanded the scale of its operations, adding logistics of clinical research to its portfolio. Farmasoft has its own customs brokers and refrigerated transport for deliveries. The quality of the company’s service is guaranteed by the ISO 9001:2008 quality management system (certified by TÜV Rheinland), introduction of rules of Good Distribution Practice (GDP) and Good Storage Practice (GSP), annually performed internal and external audits and the conformity of services rendered to the requirements of the state quality control inspectorate.
Farmasoft had a rising need for updating and standardizing its IT infrastructure. The company had end-of-life servers and obsolete switching units, without warranty or support.
Equipment was selected for building the reference architecture allowing for the high requirements for performance, flexibility, fault tolerance and energy efficiency. In doing so it was planned to facilitate the smooth scaling of the enterprise’s entire IT infrastructure over a minimum of 3 years. Farmasoft’s IT specialists chose solutions by Fujitsu, NetApp and VMware.
