A winning Formula 1 car is built with 80,000 parts and components that must perform together at speeds of over 200 mph. To support the success of such a technologically advanced racing car, a wealth of compute, storage and network technologies are required to analyze data, aid design, support manufacturing, monitor on-track performance, and more. Smaller, lighter and faster are the driving forces behind IT as much as they are in Formula 1 racing.
To accomplish all that, it takes an IT infrastructure that’s as streamlined, sleek and powerful as the car itself. Today, with a converged infrastructure from EMC, Lotus F1 Team has achieved that goal.
A mere five months ago, Lotus F1 Team and EMC embarked upon a partnership to create the IT backbone necessary to underpin the Team’s aspiration to challenge for the World Championship in 2015. Together we are completely overhauling our IT infrastructure. I am thrilled to report that the infrastructure was fully designed, tested and deployed in record time.
Working in pit-crew-like fashion with our friends at EMC, VMware and VCE we ensured that the solution being deployed not only meets our future needs, but is fully integrated with our legacy environment.
