Z600 Workstation case study

.

Introduction

Data is fundamentally changing the way companies do business, driving demand for data scientists and increasing the complexity in their workflows. Getting the performance required to transform massive amounts of data into insights is what one Swedish Research company was looking for when they came to Intelligent Servers.

Since 2005, the Swedish Research company has become a global provider of survey feedback systems hosting a comprehensive platform for data mining. Counting billion-dollar TV networks and consumer electronics companies amongst its key clients, the company was one of the first in the world to offer survey technology that could be used on mobile devices. Today, the research company’s suite of tools includes 14 software solutions supporting 28 languages.

Industry: Research

Hardware: HPE Z Series Workstations

Software: Windows 10 Pro

Workstations Configured to Exact Business Requirements

The Chief Technology Officer was familiar with HP Z600 Workstations but required them to be configured with powerful components to ensure they could combat the data-intensive tasks the company embarks on every day. He was quickly and easily able to choose the exact Processors, Memory, Hard Drives and Graphics Cards he required using the Intelligent Servers online build tool. Combining the power of Intel Xeon X5600 processors, NVIDIA Quadro NVS Graphic Cards, 48GB of HP Memory and 1TB Seagate SATA Hard Drives, the HP Z600 Workstations were specifically optimised for data science.

Knowing that all the components in the online build tool were fully compatible with the HP Z600, despite them being from a range of brands (Intel, NVIDIA, HP, Seagate) saved him time going back and forth with quotes and checking spec sheets for compatibility. The three year warranty with all parts including remote setup and support also reassured him of the quality of the hardware he was buying.

.

"After a lot of researching, I decided to purchase my HP Z600 Workstations from Intelligent Servers largely due to them having a three year hardware warranty despite them being refurbished (most suppliers only offer 3-6 months, if any)." – Chief Technology Officer, Swedish Research Company

.

"Second to None" Aftercare

Although their offices are located in Sweden, over 1,000 miles away from the Intelligent Servers UK warehouse, the Chief Technology Officer benefited from the free delivery on all orders worldwide offered on the Intelligent Servers website. The Workstations were fully configured by HP specialists and thoroughly tested to ensure they were ready for immediate deployment upon arrival. Packed in bespoke packaging to ensure a safe transit, the Workstations arrived with 48 hours of placing his online order.

Integrating new IT systems into existing infrastructure is not always a simple task, and when a few teething problems occurred, the Intelligent Servers team were on hand to support deployment. IT specialists talked him through the process over the phone and via email and his issues were quickly resolved.

"The systems arrived in less than 48 hours after purchase and were extremely well packed for its journey. I was struggling to get Windows to see that there were two CPU's and not one, however to my surprise Intelligent Server’s aftercare service both via email and over the phone was excellent, truly second to none! In my experience, most companies take your money with a smile and then become varying degrees of unhelpful when problems arise. It took a few ideas bouncing back and forth but between us, the solution was identified (a very simple one as it turned out), and it is now purring like a well fed kitten!" – Chief Technology Officer, Swedish Research Company
