Webcast: A Western Digital Brand - Helps Honda Trading to Keep the Wheels Turning

A Western Digital Brand - Helps Honda Trading to Keep the Wheels Turning

Topic: The challenge that Honda Trading faced was finding a reliable and high-performing storage solution to replace end of life storages systems and supporting a new Microsoft Dynamics CRM system running in a 100% virtualized environment using VMware Virtual Servers and Virtual Desktops.

With this in mind, Tegile - now a part of the Western Digital Corporation will be presenting the 'before and after’ scenarios of this Honda Trading’s story and how important various aspects of the system design were critical to the effective operation at the company. A critical factor in choosing the right storage vendor to work with was the guaranteed latency and performance of the storage system and the additional capacity to ensure growth for the next few years.

Honda Trading Europe is an extremely vital cog in the giant Honda motor corporation. An environmentally conscious, global commerce company, it links buyer and seller, providing benefits to both parties through cost-effective application of its network and resources. The team procures all the materials, from steel and aluminum to rubber and paint, required to build Honda's cars, motorbikes, lawnmowers and other products across Europe.

Honda Trading relies on the availability of and rapid access to data in order to do its job effectively – whether that is confidential customer information, details of suppliers and purchase orders or office systems and applications such as email or critical databases. The IT infrastructure is vital to the company’s success – in fact, Honda Trading estimates that it could lose approximately millions pounds a day if the team is unable to carry out its duty.


What You'll Learn:

- How to increase virtual machine consolidation and accelerate virtual machine and virtual desktop performance

- How to reduce your storage footprint with inline compression and deduplication and maintain both block and file access concurrently

- How to ensure Virtual Machine availability through VM and Application consistent snapshots and remote data replication


Speaker: Paul Haddow - Director, EMEA Systems Engineering, Tegile Systems

Moderator: Naresh Chouhan, EMEA Marketing Director, Tegile Systems.
