IBM Systems Supports PJ LHUILLIER, Inc.
PJ Lhuillier Incorporated (PJLI)recently strengthened its IT infrastructure with IBM BladeCentre servers and IBM’s latest eX5 systems to support the company’s continuous growth nationwide. PJ Lhuillier is the company behind the 1,500 Cebuana Lhuillier Pawnshop (CLP) branches nationwide.
The new IBM systems will also help PJLI address increasing customer demands and better prepare for the anticipated surge of business transactions in the last quarter of the year.
According to the news released, the IBM – PJLI team-up was first established in 1996, where PJLI made its first IBM server acquisition. This continuous enhancement is one of the manifestations of PJLI’s goal in providing the best service to its clients, truly living up to its slogan “Walang Kapantay Magpahalaga.”
The IBM Blade Centre server is a highly integrated system comprising of blade servers, storage, management and networking options which help reduce management complexity, increase performance and energy-efficiency. It also significantly reduces costs with a highly reliable and flexible design that deters the need for “rip and replace” as capacity needs change.
As part of the solution, IBM BladeCentre HS22 blade servers will provide hot-swap drives and integrated systems management tools, common across all new x86 servers, to help improve the economics of PJLI’s current infrastructure, including fueling faster performance to a reduction in IT footprint, energy and connectivity costs.
