Macquarie stitches up infrastructure deal

Australian wool textile manufacturer Macquarie Textiles has signed a $300,000 contract to expand its IT infrastructure to meet its growing business demands.

Under the deal, with Hewlett-Packard (HP), the textile company will put into service 14 HP ProLiant DL Series Servers and 115 HP Compaq Business Desktop d530 Small Form Factors, therefore doubling the organization's current server amount.

Macquarie Textiles IT manager Paul Cullen claims that to keep up with increased demand the organization needed to upgrade.

"Given the regional location of our headquarters in Albury, NSW, HP's reliable support services were vital," Cullen said.

The new HP ProLiant DL Series Servers and HP Compaq Business Desktop d530 Small Form Factors will be used to increase office efficiency and reduce IT maintenance costs.

The implementation is expected to take 35 days and provide a 37 percent return on investment in the first year.
