Honda Parts Manufacturing Corporation profits from new PRIMERGY and ETERNUS virtualized infrastructure
"Fujitsu has given us a cost-effective, high-performing solution that meets all our needs today and can readily scale to meet future demands."
Fujitsu deployed servers and storage to support HPMC’s new virtualized environment, leading to lower energy costs, simpler management and improved performance
Honda is a Japanese multinational corporation primarily known as a manufacturer of automobiles, motorcycles and power equipment. It has been the world’s leading motorcycle manufacturer for over 50 years and also produces the largest number of internal combustion engines per year by volume. In the Philippines, it has a subsidiary, Honda Parts Manufacturing Corporation (HPMC), dedicated to the manufacture of Honda-transmission cases, gears, shafts and assembly.
When Honda Parts Manufacturing Corporation’s old physical servers reached end-of-life, the company decided to introduce a new virtualized environment for improved agility, better performance and lower costs.
After evaluating the leading vendors, it chose to partner with Fujitsu and replaced eleven physical servers with just two Fujitsu VMware servers supported by Fujitsu storage.
