Case Study
IBM Blade Center and Storage Case Study for EIPICO

Business situation

Egyptian International Pharmaceutical Industries Co. (EIPICO), the largest local producer of pharmaceuticals in Egypt, has shifted to SAP applications to manage its core business, alongside Microsoft Office, Exchange and other Microsoft Windows-based applications.

They are now using a range of SAP ERP functionalities including financials, controlling and distribution, materials management and warehouse management and they determined that multiple business systems were not serving the corporation efficiently.

Diversified backup, archive and restore processes and an uncertain disaster recovery plan needed to be improved to secure business data.

Technical situation

The technical objectives were to simplify the IT infrastructure, reduce costs and implement a robust and scalable solution that offers a unified data backup, restore and archive environment. Additionally, Nile.Com offered a storage area network to help reduce total storage costs, by maximizing disk utilization, and to cut backup system administration costs through process automation.
