Qualcomm Inc. has relocated its regional data centre to Taiwan and IT Services provider Dimension Data has undertaken this US$ 1 million migration project for the San Diego, California-based semiconductor company.
A press statement by Dimension Data, whose offerings include data centre migration services, said the transfer had been prompted by constraints in Qualcomm's previously existing data centre.
It added that Dimension Data developed for this particular client a migration plan with new enhancements based on a variety of multivendor solutions, which included WAN optimization, load balancing and high performance security devices.
The press statement claimed that since the data centre's complete migration, Qualcomm has benefitted from 99.9% uptime, high scalability, low latency and improved security.
At the same time, Qualcomm now expects to realise a 30% reduction in utility charges and a 10% drop in office rent, the relocated data centre requiring less space. As a result, it will be able to pay for itself in six months.
