SITA: Reaching for the Clouds

Airline communications and IT provider SITA standardizes on Intel® Xeon® processors to enhance application performance and move toward a flexible cloud computing environment. For more than 60 years, SITA has been providing communications and IT solutions that keep the air transport industry moving.

To enhance the flexibility, scalability, and cost effectiveness of the infrastructure used to host its solutions, SITA transitioned from an outdated mainframe to a virtualized environment based on open, industry-standard platforms.

Today, SITA has standardized on IBM® BladeCenter® HS22 blade servers equipped with the Intel® Xeon® processor 5600 series. This reference architecture provides the dense, high-performance environment for the organization’s native and virtualized x86 deployments and the foundation for a cloud computing environment that will allow SITA to meet rising demand and deliver new solutions more rapidly and cost-effectively than ever before.
