Godrej Consumer Products keeps pace with a flexible server infrastructure for virtualization

Godrej Consumer Products Ltd (GCPL) is one of India’s fastest growing companies with many well-known household and personal care brands. Headquartered in Mumbai, GCPL is one of India’s leading fast moving consumer goods companies with a strong emerging presence in markets outside India where nine recent foreign acquisitions have brought brands and trademarks in Latin America, Europe, Australia, Canada, Africa and the Middle East.


In recent years its expansion has accelerated with a series of international acquisitions, but its IT infrastructure was struggling to keep pace. They wanted new technology that would support virtualization and provide the speed, scalability and high availability needed for an increasing number of new projects.


Godrej Consumer Products Ltd chose HP BladeSystem to meet this challenge, as part of an HP Converged Infrastructure solution, key components included a series of powerful HP BL460c Gen8 blade servers with HP Virtual Connect Flex-10 and Virtual Connect Fibre modules.


The increased computing power of the HP systems means that I am now supporting more and more critical applications that are coming onto my infrastructure and we are getting those applications into production much more quickly than we could before” says Dinesh Chandra Gupta, Deputy General Manager for IT, Godrej Consumer Products Ltd.
