Codorníu tastes the benefits of the Cloud

  1. 1. IBM Systems & Technology Group Consumer ProductsSmarter Computing Codorníu tastes the benefits of the Cloud With smarter computing from IBM Codorníu is Spain’s leading sparkling wine producer, with additional Overview vineyards in Argentina and Chile. The group has worldwide sales offices, and this family-owned business continues to grow, based on its The need reputation for quality. Executives wanted to reduce business risk by implementing a full backup and recovery solution, securing precious SAP Recognizing the challenge application data. Relying on a mix of HP servers and miscellaneous storage systems, The solution the Codorníu IT team considered that the business was vulnerable to Implemented a suite of IBM hardware systems outage or disaster. Data could only be backed up manually and software designed to reduce IT as there was no centralized process, which imposed high workloads complexity, introduce automated business continuity and recovery services, on IT staff. Introducing new services and applications was slow, and cut the total cost of operation. requiring new physical servers to be purchased, configured and deployed. The IT team wanted to reduce business risk by introducing The benefit a planned continuity and recovery service, reduce operational costs by Reduced the number of servers by more than 70 percent and cut the hardware introducing automation wherever possible, and increase business agility footprint by 75 percent, from four with a more flexible, responsive IT infrastructure. Simultaneously, the racks to just one. Automated systems Group directive was that IT expenses were planned to reduce by 20 management solutions have reduced IT staff workload, freeing them for more percent annually. productive tasks. Monthly costs have been reduced by more than 20 percent and are expected to be reduced further Developing the solution through higher consolidation and storage Codorníu initially invited vendors to submit proposals based on a optimization. business continuity and recovery solution. The IBM team responded by suggesting that Codorníu would benefit from a full study of their IT landscape, and as a result proposed a full IT server migration and consolidation program, with an associated storage optimization project. The IBM team recommended that the Codorníu team move onwards from managing and tuning servers and manual maintenance of backups and storage, to managing an IT environment that would provide a platform for flexible growth, while IBM management tools such as IBM Systems Director and IBM Tivoli Storage Manager handled the underlying hardware.
  2. 2. IBM Systems & Technology Group Consumer ProductsSmarter Computing To meet the specific need to reduce business risk, Codorníu Designed for Data implemented high availability solutions based on IBM BladeCenter • Codorníu has introduced standardized servers, powered by Intel, IBM POWER6 and POWER7 processors, and automated procedures designed to and introduced storage virtualization provided by IBM N series reduce business risk across its worldwide operations, increasing security and gateways, consolidating existing storage into a more easily managed improving its data governance and central pool. improving its IT management and vision. Tuned to the Task Codorníu’s core SAP applications run on the POWER7 processor- • Reduced the number of servers by more based blades, and other line of business applications run on blades that 70 percent through virtualization powered by Intel Xeon series processors. All storage is managed on IBM BladeCenter servers powered through the IBM System Storage N series gateways, which consolidates by Intel, IBM POWER6 and POWER7 processors, running workload on the multiple disk arrays into a single storage pool. IBM Tivoli Storage platform best suited to the task. Codorníu Manager provides automated, policy-based backup, archive and is now able to create, update and remove restore services, while IBM Systems Director delivers monitoring and virtual environments as requested with real flexibility, providing the business with management services for easier IT service management. easy tools to perform their tasks. The previous infrastructure, which lacked a redundancy strategy and Managed in the Cloud relied on manual backup processes, was replaced with an integrated • Codorníu has deployed advanced service management capabilities based on IBM IBM solution delivering excellent data security and automated business Tivoli Storage Manager and IBM Systems continuity and recovery.

Codorníu towards a Cloud computing model, where service capacity and is now evaluating what loads will be capability is more important than administration and server footprint. initially served and provisioned in private Using the new BladeCenter platform, Codorníu will be able to create cloud. new business services rapidly and easily, and monitor usage and cost on Driving Innovation a service delivery model. • The new flexible environment supports Codorníu’s international growth strategy by allowing the IT department to focus To get to a fully Cloud environment, Codorníu is embarking on on improving business processes and a journey that is expected to take around two years, Codorníu is developing new services. consolidating and virtualizing servers, and automating management and administration services. These first steps allow the Codorníu IT team to spend more time on solving business issues and considering how best to take advantage of Cloud computing. Enjoying the benefits Codorníu has reduced the number of servers by more than 70 percent, and cut the physical server footprint from four to just one rack. Energy consumption is drastically lower, by around 70 percent, and the advanced automation capabilities of Tivoli Storage Manager and IBM Systems Director help to reduce the costs of infrastructure management, which are expected to fall by half. Purchases were funded through IBM Global Financing, resulting in lower monthly fees for IT services, in line with the cost reduction target of 20 percent. Clarity on IT expenses makes it easier to understand and analyze the total cost of ownership, in turn helping Codorníu identify and eliminate inefficiencies.
