Saudi Aramco is to standardise of Compaq’s Windows 2000 ProLiant server platform. The deal includes the supply of related accessories and support from the vendor’s global services organisation.

Compaq only won the deal after beating off heavy competition from rival vendors. According to Compaq’s press statement, the ProLiant won through due to its ‘quality and reliability.’

“The Compaq solution is expected to reduce many administrative functions which will save the company time, effort, and money," explained Hany Abu-Khadra, manager, computer & communication systems department, Saudi Aramco.

"Furthermore, the ProLiant DL760 system offers complete flexibility, control, and most importantly, interoperability,” he added.

The ProLiant DL760 offers integrated management, administration, and security functions that will enable Saudi Aramco to ‘proactively’ manage its entire network of servers regardless of application or location.

According to Peter Blackmore, executive vice president, sales & services with Compaq, the standardisation on the ProLiant platform will enable the oil & gas giant to pass on operational efficiencies to its customer base.

“Our range of enterprise capabilities, technical leadership, and global services continue to be attractive to customers seeking stability, reliability and scalability in business-critical applications,” he added.
