Games Installs Green Storage System - 27th August
As part of the Virgin Group’s
global drive to develop and promote environmentally-friendly
businesses, Virgin Games -brands include Virgin
Poker, Virgin Bingo, and Virgin Casino - is using
a new storage system to consolidate multiple tiers
of storage, applications and IT environments into
a single platform while consuming the lowest levels
of space and energy, IT Pro reports.
Brazier, Virgin Games IT and operations director
said the company needed to find new storage that
will be hosted offshore as part of recently implemented
UK government gaming regulations.
Games chose to fit the data center out with HP
Blade servers and VMWare virtualisation software,
which Brazier said led the company to look for
suitable storage arrays that would fit into this
new IT environment. The Axiom storage system Virgin
Games ended up buying from Pillar Data Systems
drew the least power compared to competitor systems
in its class, according to Brazier.
