Press Release
Monday, September 17, 2012

IBM contracted by Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) to revamp its IT infrastructure.

DSME), one of the world's largest shipbuilding and offshore companies, has engaged IBM to build a stronger and more resilient IT environment around IBM's advanced storage systems to help the company better manage its Big Data challenges.

"With a vision of becoming the top general heavy industry group in the world, DSME aims to drive business transformation and innovation for continued growth," said Seung uk So, Leader of the DSME IT Planning Group. "We look at IT as a strategic imperative for our business aspirations and wanted to work with a service provider that shares our vision and passion. Our engagement with IBM would help create a sophisticated storage environment, a critical infrastructure requirement in this age of data explosion."

To do it, IBM will help DSME create a storage infrastructure built around four IBM XIV Gen3 high end disk storage systems and the IBM Storwize V7000 virtualized storage system. The systems will integrate with the DSME's core business applications, including mail service, enterprise resource management (ERP) and database management, among others, and manage the company's more than 255TB of data. The smarter computing solution will not only create an integrated storage environment for DMSE to better analyze and use data, but ensure readiness for disaster recovery. IBM was selected as the preferred partner over HP and EMC.

IBM XIV Gen3 is a multifunction high-end disk storage solution with an innovative architecture that offers exceptional performance and scalability. It also significantly reduces cost and complexity and enables improved performance to the application workload, such as virtualization, analysis, and cloud computing. Moreover, the system can optimize the storage performance of various applications, including database, email, online transaction processing, and ERP applications.
