HP today announced that the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) has chosen HP Converged Infrastructure to support its operations in 15 offices around the world with improved technology performance to meet demands of operating global charity efforts.
IFAW was created four decades ago to protect white-coat harp seals against commercial hunting on the eastern coast of Canada. Today, IFAW is the world’s leading international animal welfare organization focused on saving threatened species and animals in crisis through a variety of campaigns and programs.
The organization’s primary data center, housed in an older building at its U.S. headquarters in Massachusetts, suffered from space, power and cooling constraints. Additionally, IFAW was looking to upgrade its technology infrastructure to continue to effectively manage increasing global business demands.
As an HP partner for more than 12 years, IFAW chose HP Technology Services to manage the relocation of its data center to a more energy-efficient building that recently gained LEED gold certification. HP helped IFAW move more than 40 HP ProLiant servers and other infrastructure in less than 24 hours. As part of the relocation, IFAW consolidated its data center with HP Converged Infrastructure technology, including servers, storage and networking equipment with unified management.
