Glencore Agriculture B.V. has selected Proact to replace its current server, storage, and network environment. The data centre solutions provider and cloud specialist is set to provide a complete IT infrastructure, including 24x7 support.

The solution by Proact will integrate with Glencore Agriculture B.V.’s existing environment without a long and risky implementation process. Glencore Agriculture B.V. chose to work with Proact because the data centre provider was able to demonstrate advanced knowledge and expertise. In addition, the two companies already had a committed relationship due to successful work on previous projects.

Glencore Agriculture B.V. has a significant presence in key import and export markets in more than 35 countries all over the world. Due to this, the organisation is dependent upon a highly available IT infrastructure. Proact’s solution will provide simplified management, flexibility, and will be able to meet important hardware and software demands.

Proact suggested a future-proof solution based on Cisco UCS Blade servers, Cisco Nexus, and a NetApp AFF8080 MetroCluster. Thanks to 24x7 support, Glencore Agriculture B.V.’s admin team will always be able to count on Proact’s experts for support and advice. The solution will utilise proven technology and consequently project risks will be reduced. Furthermore, the company will benefit from improved performance thanks to All-Flash technology.

Rick van Emden, Head of IT Operations at Glencore Agriculture B.V., said: “Throughout the years we have worked with Proact, the organisation has proven to be a reliable partner. With this solution we have created a future-proof infrastructure, without having to make great changes to our existing environment and the way we work.”

Sander Dekker, Business Unit Director Europe West at Proact, said: “The collaboration with Glencore Agriculture B.V. has provided us with yet another great assignment. A stable and fast infrastructure is crucial for Glencore Agriculture B.V.’s business. We are very proud that Glencore Agriculture B.V. wants to use our expertise once more, and we are looking forward to expanding this collaboration in the future.”
