Published on: 04/01/2012
Heineken is a global beverage brand with 140 breweries in more than 70 countries. Today, it operates two main brewing facilities in Zoeterwoude and Den Bosch in the Netherlands.
The IT infrastructure at Heineken grew rapidly in response to the company’s worldwide expansion. By 2004, the brewery was facing the challenge of managing and supporting 460 servers in 12 separate server rooms in the Netherlands alone. The Zoeterwoude facility is its largest data center, hosting four clusters comprising 121 physical servers.
Since adopting Dell Compellent Data Progression automated tiered storage, the company not only spends less on initial device costs, but it also can reduce power consumption cost effectively. Automated tiered storage dynamically moves enterprise data to the optimal tier based on actual use.

And with highutilization data on the top tier, the IT team can deliver optimized performance to Heineken employees.
