HP powers expansion for London’s Spencer Hart


HP announced that tailor Spencer Hart is deploying HP
Converged Infrastructure to enable its global expansion.


Spencer Hart designs made-to-measure bespoke suits and
other men’s fashion for a client list that includes David Beckham, James
Corden, Lawrence Dallaglio and Robbie Williams. Capitalizing on growing
customer demand, the company decided to open concessions in major retail stores
worldwide and a new London flagship store this month.


To support business growth, Spencer Hart needed to
replace its rigid, outdated infrastructure. With HP and HP Gold Partner
LAN2LAN, Spencer Hart deployed a cost-effective IT infrastructure for fast,
secure data management across all its operations.


As our business grows, so does our need to make the most
efficient use of our IT resources,” said Gavin Barrett, chairman, Spencer Hart.


HP provides Spencer Hart with an easily managed
infrastructure of servers, storage and networking. Now we have the operational
agility and speed to continually exceed client expectations on a global scale,”
Barrett added.


Spencer Hart chose the following HP
Converged Infrastructure solutions to support worldwide expansion:


HP ProLiant DL380 G7 servers deliver enterprise-class
uptime to ensure business continuity. Simple to configure and maintain, these
servers are easily scalable to meet future demand.


High-availability HP E2510 network switches provide fast,
secure communications between Spencer Hart’s head office and branches.


Secure data protection is ensured with an HP Ultrium 920
SAS tape drive that automatically creates backup tapes for secure off-site
archival storage in the event of a disaster.


The whole HP Converged Infrastructure is easily managed
by Spencer Hart’s small IT team, and underpinned by a support contract with HP
Technology Services for ongoing performance and reliability.


HP Converged Infrastructure is a core element of an
Instant-On Enterprise. In a world of continuous connectivity, the Instant-On
Enterprise embeds technology in everything it does to serve customers,
employees, partners and citizens with everything they need, instantly.


HP recently announced that it has appointed
John Visentin as executive vice president of HP Enterprise Services.


Visentin will be responsible for driving growth in HP
Enterprise Services, which delivers technology infrastructure, applications and
business services. He will become a member of the company’s Executive Council,
reporting directly to Leo Apotheker, HP president and chief executive officer.
