HP announced that Jordan based Aqaba Container Terminal (ACT), part of APM Terminals' global terminal network, has virtualised its main data center with HP Converged Infrastructure to guard against loss of critical data and keep services available. The highly available new IT environment with off-site disaster recovery has quadrupled ACT's system performance while reducing costs, and is considered the ideal model for virtualisation. "ACT is always looking to update its secure, reliable IT environment to ensure the highest levels of service. The new HP infrastructure automates previously manual tasks and simplifies management, which means we spend less time on maintenance." said Munther Dweik, IT Manager for Aqaba Container Terminal.
