cancom.jpgHaving offered a hosted application service to its customers for nearly 10 years, Germany-based CANCOM was excited by the potential enhancements cloud computing could offer. It recognized that with increased virtualization capabilities, its Application Hosting Platform* (AHP*) could become the AHP Private Cloud*, an entirely new proposition for its customers.

Eager to ensure its new offering was based on the most appropriate platform, CANCOM deployed HP ProLiant* DL380 G6 servers powered by the latest generation of Intel® Xeon® processors – beginning with the Intel Xeon processor 5500 series and soon upgrading to the Intel Xeon processor 5600 series when it was subsequently released.

“We have a longstanding relationship with Intel. We’re a Gold member of the Intel® Technology Provider Program and almost all of our IT environment is based on Intel® architecture,” comments Pavlovits. “So, it was a simple decision for us to make use of this technology in this solution. We knew that only Intel would be able to deliver the energy efficiency, performance, and long-term stability that we required. In addition to this, virtualization was to play a crucial role in this new platform, so a processor with the power to support the consolidation of multiple applications and heavy workloads was essential.”
