Toronto - One of the country's largest providers of health, dental, group, life, disability and long-term care benefits, Aetna Inc. has selected CiRBA's data center intelligence (DCI) solution to capture and better understand the attributes and dynamics of the company's data center assets and resources"Aetna is expanding its business through acquisition and organic growth at an accelerated rate, with revenues increasing to over $22.5 billion in 2005," says Patti Schlosser, head of server & storage services, of Aetna Information Services. "Supporting an employee base of 28,000, Aetna's business segments demand increased flexibility, performance and reliability from its IT resources. With the growth of our business, the size, diversity and complexity of our IT infrastructure have dramatically increased, requiring us to have a firm grip on the management of the technologies and processes within that environment. We view CiRBA's Data Center Intelligence (DCI) as a solution that will immediately address Aetna's configuration management and compliance reporting requirements."

Aetna is expecting to gain efficiencies in server and storage resource management by implementing DCI to measure change across a heterogeneous infrastructure (AIX, HP/UX, SUN Solaris, Linux, VMWare and Windows); displace current manual processes and one-off script-driven activities; and contribute to inventorying and asset management objectives. CiRBA's data capture and reporting capabilities will build greater rigor into production support processes and audit-control compliancy requirements.
