Hansa Metallwerke AG, a renowned German manufacturer, wanted a more flexible and cost-effective infrastructure to support its global business operations. Hansa has centralized all IT services in Stuttgart and developed a state-of-the-art data center to support the consolidated services. A key decision in designing the data center was to upgrade and standardize both LAN and storage communications on Intel® Ethernet 10 Gigabit Converged Network Adapters. Now, network costs are down, performance has doubled, IT is more efficient, and Hansa has more flexibility to respond to business changes.
