Read/Download White Paper (PDF)
Business Solutions for IT Managers: AutoVAZ is one of Russia’s largest auto manufacturers. Founded in the 1960s following a collaboration with Italian manufacturer Fiat, the company has grown into a worldwide player in the automotive market segment. In early 2011, the Renault–Nissan alliance increased its stake in AutoVAZ to 25 percent. In practical terms, this meant more information sharing among the three manufacturers, as each seeks to use designs and specifications from each other to manufacture cars. Within this context, AutoVAZ wanted to upgrade its servers and information systems that ran its mission-critical enterprise resource planning (ERP) applications. It turned to the Intel Xeon processor E7-4860 to power these new servers.
