Volkswagen Saves Time and Money with a Private Cloud Deployment
To accelerate the delivery of IT infrastructure, speed the production of new software applications, and improve IT responsiveness to the business, the Volkswagen Group deployed a next-generation cloud based on Intel® Architecture and the Mirantis OpenStack* cloud platform. Infrastructure resources that were previously locked into rigid silos can now be pooled, shared, and accessed on demand, enabl...ing greater business and IT agility. The company’s head of IT infrastructure shares that the cloud solution and standardization on Intel-based platforms have helped the Volkswagen Group cut IT infrastructure costs by more than 70 percent. Going forward, the OpenStack-based cloud will help the Volkswagen Group accelerate existing business functions and the rollout of new technologies that enable business transformation and keep the Volkswagen brand at the leading edge of the industry.
