Apparel manufacturer TAL Apparel was finding it tough to keep with the pace of its business expansion in Asia. Complex issues in IT infrastructure and shortage of skilled IT talent in local markets added to the woes.
That’s when the company adopted Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform by Nutanix, a leader in enterprise cloud computing. The solution has helped the apparel manufacturer in reducing time required for IT infrastructure management, and focus more on leading innovations in garment manufacturing.
With the deployment of Nutanix, solutions including the JBoss application server on Linux, Apache webserver, IBM WebSphere application server, IBM DB2 and file server, as well as network services including Windows Active Directory, DHCP and DNS servers were successfully migrated to the new platform.
“With years of experience deploying legacy infrastructures in multiple markets, we believe that web-scale, hyper-convergence and cloud-like infrastructure should be our way moving forward. As we expand our footprint across a number of growth markets, IT infrastructures at our corporate offices and off-site locations must operate with both simplicity and scalability in order to ensure efficiency and give us peace of mind. The Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform enabled us to evolve past our legacy IT infrastructure and scale out anytime, anywhere,” said Kai Yuen Kiang, Vice President, Information Technology, TAL Apparel Limited.

It may be mentioned here that Nutanix has completed one successful year of installation at TAL Apparel.
“Our enterprise cloud offerings not only allow TAL Apparel and other customers to embrace the evolution of next generation enterprise IT infrastructures with ease, our solutions also enable easy, non-disruptive upgrades and automatic dispatch of preventive alerts to ensure operational efficiency,” said Edward Yeung, Managing Director, Hong Kong and Taiwan, Nutanix.
