Real-World Customer Success



A national insurance company was in the process of shifting away from their current managed services data centers and building out two new data centers. Because this included the expansion of the VDI, Commvault and ESXi environments, which were already partially built on Lenovo, they needed a server platform that was flexible in configuration, could be easily integrated into their existing environment, and offered world-class performance and support.


Using existing approved reference architectures, Eastern proposed three different workloads using Dell EMC servers – one each for VDI, Commvault and ESX VMs. The solution included:

bank vSan ready nodes in two data centers to allow for redundancy for the VDI environment.
bank Three different builds on the Dell EMC PowerEdge R640, which allowed them to keep the same ESX VM platform for better rack space utilization.
bank For Commvault, deployment at four different data centers, including Equinix, Dallas, Weck and Tierpoint, giving them the ability to back up all environments in a scale-out architecture.
bank In addition to the Dell EMC server solution, Eastern expertly deployed the initial rack/stack/cable and hypervisor, alleviating the time and resources it would have taken the customer to initially install and deploy this new environment.


The customer was able to adapt their new data center to three different workloads, giving them the ability to continue to expand their software environments. The solution delivered:

checkmark A dual-vendor strategy within their compute environment
checkmark Lower acquisition costs
checkmark Improved ROI
checkmark More efficient use of resources
