Proof of Concept Westfriesgasthuis
Proof of Concept (PoC) of PowerEdge R640 servers for the Citrix environment and SQL Database servers.
Why was a Proof of Concept needed?
To obtain certainty about performance (in order to determine sizing).
The Proof of Concept was successful. Westfriesgasthuis and its partner Infotheek were delighted with how it went, and the involvement of Dell EMC (in brainstorming/offering support) and the expertise provided by IRENT.systems via the rapid delivery of test servers helped to ensure a successful result. Ultimately a total of 30 servers were purchased. HPE had been the standard at Westfriesgasthuis, but following the successful Proof of Concept the organisation has now switched to Dell EMC PowerEdge servers.
