SANBI delivers Greener IT with 76 Percent Less Servers: Case Study

Biodiversity organization in South Africa delivers greener IT with around 76 per cent fewer servers

Business need

SANBI wanted to deliver greener IT as part of a program to reduce the organization’s carbon footprint. It also planned to simplify IT management, increase performance and improve services to clients.

SOLUTION

It collaborated with Dell Consulting Services to deliver a virtualized solution featuring Dell PowerEdge* blade servers running Windows Server 2008 R2*, with Hyper V* and Dell* storage. It also chose Dell Support Services* to maximize the solution’s performance.

SANBI looked for a sustainable IT solution to help manage and deliver growing amounts of data. Selwyn Willoughby, Director of Biodiversity Information Management at the South African National Biodiversity Institute, says: “The question was how could we control this data more effectively and reduce our carbon footprint?” The IT team eventually got the chance to take on the challenge with a project to standardize software on Microsoft technology and consolidate the server and storage environments. Simo Mpungose, IT Director at South African National Biodiversity Institute, says: “This was not only an opportunity to deliver greener IT, but a chance to simplify management, increase IT productivity and improve services to our internal customers.”
