Nextra Teleservices Calls
for IBM PureSystems
IBM recently announced that Nextra Teleservices Pvt
Ltd (Nextra), an emerging Internet Service Provider (ISP), has selected IBM's
PureSystems technology to provide the IT backbone for its high-speed broadband
infrastructure. The system will also support Nextra's business growth, allowing
it to introduce innovative value added services securely, quickly and in-line
with increases in available bandwidth.
The new IBM PureFlex System will help Nextra to
remove system bottlenecks, streamline internal processes and ensure
uninterrupted high-speed broadband service for individual clients as well as
for small and medium companies in Delhi Northern Capital Region (NCR). The IBM
PureFlex System, with its integrated storage capability, is ideal for the
management and virtualization of internal and third-party storage that
typically slows down ISP infrastructures. In fact, since deploying the system,
Nextra has seen its storage utilization increased by up to 30 percent.
“We were looking at starting a new line of business
and IBM PureFlex was the best solution matching our needs because of its fully
fledged cloud capabilities,” said Puneesh Singla, General Manager – Information
Systems, Nextra Teleservices. “We believe PureFlex will help us to be faster
and more efficient in designing and marketing new collaboration services to
cater to millions subscribers."
With high demand for its hosted and next generation
services, Nextra required a reliable, flexible and robust IT infrastructure to
handle current offerings, as well as provide data backup and archiving. Nextra
deployed an IBM PureFlex System with IBM Storwize V7000 storage to help
maintain the high quality of its base services such as FTTH Broadband, and
introduce new ones - such as IPTV/ OTT Video based Services requiring
ultra-high system availability .
