Australia’s Brisbane Airport Selects VCE to Virtualize its Data Centre
When the leaders and Finance Ministers of the G20 countries attend the G20 Leaders Summit in 2014, many will have the opportunity to travel through Brisbane Airport, the most recent Cisco, VMware and EMC virtualization customer.
More than 21 million passengers funnel through the bustling Brisbane Airport each year and it’s one of the premier aviation hubs in Asia Pacific. As operators of the crucial regional hub, Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC) must link with the 420 businesses, 20,000 workers and 27 airlines located at the airport, as well as maintain effective links with the community and government.
BAC’s strategic vision is to transform Brisbane Airport into a major commercial centre for business and leisure that supports the economic and cultural growth of Brisbane and Queensland. The airport is set to have an important role in Brisbane’s transformation into a new world city.
To improve business agility and airport operational effectiveness, BAC selected Cisco partner Corpnet, recently acquired by Logicalis, to deploy a private cloud built on the Cisco Unified Computing System (USC), Cisco Nexus switches, EMC VNX storage system and VMware vSphere server virtualization software.
Like many other enterprises, airports must provide the highest availability of operations while offering maximum flexibility to accommodate the ever changing needs of their business environment. Cisco is pleased that BAC has selected the scalable and easy to manage Cisco UCS to provide it with more flexibility and greater agility as it expands to achieve its vision.
