Guardian adopts IDEAS Advantage for datacenter planning

Ideas International announced that The Guardian Life
Insurance Company of America (Guardian), has adopted its IDEAS Advantage
service, a family of online information and analysis tools, to help remodel the
company’s datacenter infrastructure.

It’s wonderful to have such a prestigious company as
Guardian as excited as we are about IDEAS Advantage, said Stephen Bowhill, CEO
of IDEAS.”

Our Capacity Planners and Solution Architects have been
able to use the Server Consolidation module in IDEAS Advantage to establish
which approach best fits our organization and what savings we can expect to
achieve,” said Richard Scott, Chief Technology Officer of Guardian.

We are using IDEAS performance rankings, RPE2, to help
us with server sizing and capacity planning as they allow us to compare the
performance of our existing infrastructure against new servers that are now
becoming available. The IDEAS data tools are also helping us to establish a
cost per performance unit measurement for future server acquisitions,” Scott

IDEAS provides the IDEAS
Advantage service to many large global institutions, which helps Solution
Architects analyse the best solutions available in the market.

IDEAS Advantage distils a broad array of public and
non-public data into an easy to use tool that helps architects make decisions
