Skyscanner Selects Dell to Build New Converged Data Centres

Dell has announced that Skyscanner has teamed with Dell to architect and build new converged data centres in the UK and Singapore and has plans to deploy in Hong Kong in January. Skyscanner has recently moved away from hosted IT resources and has built its own data centres in Europe and Asia to support its customers globally. Skyscanner also selected transport support through the Dell ProSupport Mission Critical four-hour response service, which offers a local single point of contact that is able to address IT issues. Following the test phase, Dell's end-to-end, scalable services were put into place at Skyscanner's new data centre sites. Each site was equipped with multiple Dell Converged Blade Data Centre services, which combine Dell EqualLogic blade arrays, servers, switching and management to provide an entire data centre within a single blade enclosure and helping to streamline IT management and operations. Skyscanner deployed EqualLogic hybrid SSD arrays, which auto-tier hot application data to provide optimal performance for Skyscanner's priority workloads. Skyscanner worked closely with Dell IT Advisory Services throughout the implementation process.
