Compudyne improves app performance & maintains 100% service availability for clients with HP Gen8


Guest blog written by Rosie Chiovari, HP Industry Standard Servers


Compudyne, a long-time HP partner based in Duluth, Minnesota, prides itself on building lasting relationships with its customers. Over the last 30 years the company has grown from a local computer reseller offering break/fix services into a regional systems integrator that provides a full complement of repair, maintenance, support as well as network management services.


As an HP Partner, Compudyne has long relied on HP ProLiant servers, both in its own server infrastructure as well as at customer sites. Over the last several years, their virtualized HP Proliant-based environment has grown to support a variety of workloads that also include manufacturing and retail applications. Dustin Simonson, Systems Architect at Compudyne commented, “We’ve migrated through generations of HP ProLiant servers over the last three years, and we have nothing but good things to say. We’re very, very happy with the HP ProLiant Gen8 servers.”


To keep up with business growth, Compudyne needed to upgrade its virtualization technology to VMware vSphere5, which serendipitously coincided with the release of the DL380 Gen8.  As a result, Compudyne was able to take advantage of improvements in server capacity, provisioning, performance and especially the management features of the iLO Management Engine and Active Health System so critical to meet the SLAs of their customers.

In addition, with the HP ProLiant DL380 Gen8, Compudyne has experienced the following IT improvements:


  • Reduced power and cooling costs by 50%
  • Decreased administration time by 40%
  • Consolidated customer environments by up to 90%


As a result, Compudyne has experienced the following business benefits:

  • Improved performance for running customer applications by 20%
  • Helped their client base consolidate their respective serer infrastructure and a means of controlling costs
