BMW logoMotor giant BMW will migrate about a third of its fleet of proprietary Unix servers to commodity Intel machines with Linux and Windows to take on the workloads.

Eckard Schiffler from BMW’s group data center in Asia said the global company has some 80,000 desktops and 6000 servers supporting about 4500 applications.

“BMW IT is highly standardized in both infrastructure and processes,” he said.

With three main data centers in Europe, the U.S. and Asia, BMW supports over 100,000 employees and the manufacture of nearly 1.4 million vehicles per year.
