DEKRA opts for resourceful central server management with Fujitsu ServerView Suite
"Thanks to the integrated Remote Management Controller of the ServerView Suite we are now able to directly access all servers of our branch offices from our headquarters."
DEKRA one of the world’s leading expert organizations
“On the safe side.” This DEKRA slogan reflects the unfailing service promise that DEKRA applies vis-à-vis its customers. Successfully passed expert inspections of motor vehicles, industrial facilities or lifts give reassurance - and the green DEKRA seal is visible proof. DEKRA is one of the world’s leading expert organizations and currently maintains a presence in more than 50 countries. Approximately 25,000 employees worldwide are committed to ensuring long-term safety, quality and environmental protection. The service portfolio is pooled together in three business units, namely DEKRA Automotive, DEKRA Industrial and DEKRA Personnel. While the Automotive section (excluding the area of periodic vehicle inspections) provides, among others, expert opinions and claims services, the comprehensive consultancy and inspection offering of the Industrial section focuses on plant safety, environmental protection, health and safety at work as well as building quality and safety. DEKRA Personnel offers concepts for vocational training and temporary employment. Founded in 1925, DEKRA (Deutscher Kraftfahrzeug-Überwachungs-Verein) stands for ‘German Motor Vehicle Inspection Association’. The headquarters of today’s DEKRA SE is located in Stuttgart, Germany.
Reliable servers for DEKRA safety checks
An organization that carries out inspections on a world-wide scale inevitably produces a huge amount of valuable data. That is why DEKRA has decided to renew its server landscape throughout its German locations. The organization ordered 480 PRIMERGY tower servers for its agencies that run the DEKRA testing software as well as 30 PRIMERGY RX300 S5/S6 2-socket rack servers for its Stuttgart-based data center. “The Fujitsuserver systems ensure stable operation,” says Harald Reich who works at the DEKRA data center in Stuttgart. “In addition, Fujitsu is truly committed to impeccable service.” However, regarding the requirements for a new server landscape that is only half the rent. “We also opted for Fujitsu because we wanted to be able to centrally manage our geographically dispersed servers from the same solution.” And this is made possible by Fujitsu ServerView Suite which can be expanded to meet the specific needs of the user through the numerous add-on modules.
