Sanofi Transforms Data Center with EMC VPLEX to Migrate 4

EMC Corporation today announced that Sanofi, a global pharmaceutical company, has implemented EMC® VPLEX® virtual storage research to transform Sanofi's IT environment by consolidating 26 data centers to only three and migrate 4,000 applications in order to increase the utilization, efficiency and agility of its IT environment so that information can easily be shared, accessed and moved within, across and between its data centers.

Result of a major acquisition

As a result of a major acquisition and steady business growth, Sanofi was struggling to manage its geographically dispersed IT infrastructure that spanned 26 separate sites around the world. Additionally, Sanofi's employees were finding it increasingly difficult to access and share data-a capability in other words critical to advancing Sanofi's pharmaceutical technology, regulatory approvals and product distribution.

Sanofi implemented EMC VPLEX to migrate 4,000 applications to a centrally managed IT infrastructure during consolidating its sprawling 26 data centers to just three, now located in the US, France and Singapore. With more than 200 applications already migrated, Sanofi has achieved increased agility in its data center.  The "Federated AccessAnywhere" innovation inside VPLEX was a key enabler to achieving and expediting a in fact massive IT consolidation-during avoiding any downtime of production systems. This migration and new ability to share, access and move information has significantly reduced Sanofi's operating costs and improving business agility.

"As part of our ongoing IT transformation, VPLEX will help us to deliver IT services to numerous business groups across Sanofi.  We will reduce our operating costs by 20% and increase overall efficiency once our migration is complete.  With these savings, we'll be able to pour more IT resources into strategic projects that support our scientists and healthcare clients."
"We chose EMC VPLEX because it allows us to create a robust IT environment with seamless management of our data regardless of where it resides. EMC's extensive experience in the data center gave us the confidence that we would have the right innovation to make this project a success."
