"Previously it would take us ten days to pull information from the system; now we can do it in a matter of minutes. This responsiveness enables us to make better informed business decisions."
Gautam Kochar, Deputy General Manager, Madhya Pradesh Paschim Kshetra Vidyut Vitaran Company Ltd.
Madhya Pradesh Paschim Kshetra Vidyut Vitaran Company Ltd. (MPPKVVCL) is responsible for the distribution and retail supply of electricity in the areas covered by the Commissionaires of Indore and Ujjain. Its chief priorities are to improve efficiency and ensure commercial viability, while becoming progressively sustainable and less government dependent. Paschim Kshetra encompasses an area served by 77,021 kilometers of high tension voltage and 137,105 kilometers of low tension voltage distribution network.
MPPKVVCL was using a distributed network across its 600 offices to handle the billing of electricity. This led to inaccurate readings, long delays in retrieving information and loss of revenue.
The company worked with Fujitsu to build two data centers from scratch, each of which comprised 36 Fujitsu PRIMERGY rack servers and two Fujitsu ETERNUS disk storage systems and two Fujitsu ETERNUS tape libraries.
