Holcim upgrades data storage system through IBM
Published: 24 November 2011

Holcim Philippines INC recently migrated to IBM System Storage N series storage solutions to implement a more efficient tiered storage infrastructure that has improved cost savings, integrated data security, and effective resources management.

The new system seeks to enhance data management across the Holcim network and at the same time provides enough flexibility should the company expand capacity to address growing business needs. “With the IBM storage solutions in place, we now have a more efficient use of our storage resources, enterprise class data integrity, and savings in operational costs brought by consolidation.” said Reywen delos Reyes, information technology manager of Holcim Philippines.

Data now enter the enterprise in more ways, from more sources, than ever before. For example, billions of RFID tags are currently used in asset management, mobile solutions and services, and Web 2.0 platforms. These devices generate important new classes of data unknown to the enterprise, with an estimated tenfold increase in digital data since 2006, and the rate of increase is expected to continue.
