InteleNet Serves Up Enhanced Services With IBM's BladeCenter While Reducing Energy Costs
InteleNet Improves Reliability, Accessibility, Serviceability

IBM has announced that InteleNet Communications, dealing in on-demand managed hosting and Internet services, has improved the reliability, accessibility and reduced energy costs in its sprawling 55,000-square-foot data center by using the IBM BladeCenter platform.

IBM's innovative approach to blades delivers a new kind of IT building block that helps improve reliability, accessibility, and serviceability. The result of IBM's innovation is a blade solution that is easier to manage, uses less power, produces significantly less heat, has longer life spans, and is easy to set up and scale, says the company.

Rising electricity costs and real estate space have become major issues for companies with growing data centers. Nowhere is it more apparent than in Southern California where land is at a premium and local utility companies have increased their electricity rates by as much as 55 percent since the start of the year.

Orange County, California-based InteleNet, is a prime example of a company taking an aggressive approach to conserving energy by adopting new energy-smart computing technology from IBM to substantially reduce its electricity costs while, at the same time, improving the reliability of its hosting services. InteleNet provides on-demand managed hosting services for SMB and Fortune 500 clients 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

"Our electricity bill has traditionally been the second largest expense after salaries to run the business, as we require the power of thousands of servers to manage hundreds of worldwide networks, complex e-commerce platforms and enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems, in one hosting data center," said Mark E. Towfiq, president and CEO, InteleNet Communications Inc. "By working with IBM to deploy blade servers and innovative tools to manage our power consumption, we have been able to reinvest money saved into new applications for improved customer service. We have not only been able to reduce energy costs but able to improve the services provided to our customers. This has been a win-win strategy for our customers."

"By deploying slim, BladeCenter servers based on ultra-low power Intel Xeon dual-core processors, InteleNet can continue to scale its technology investment on the fly to meet customer demand and benefit from exceptional performance per watt," said Doug Balog, vice president and business line executive, IBM BladeCenter.
