A multinational food services and facilities management company, located in Italy, was looking to virtualize its environment with a hyperconverged solution. The company had previously been using a combination of two compute nodes and a physical SAN for its IT infrastructure, and found the system to be lacking in performance and reliability. With their hardware at the end of its support life, they were seeking a new solution that would ensure maximum availability and increase performance in their datacenter.
From staffing restaurants, to catering, meal delivery, and facilities management, customer service is a top priority for this organization, and they needed a solution that was highly reliable, to prevent unexpected system downtime. After evaluating several different options, they decided to move forward with StorMagic SvSAN.
By eliminating its physical SAN, the company has been able to converge compute and storage into a lightweight commodity server footprint, and dramatically reduced its overall IT spend. Overall, the company reported SvSAN to be highly reliable and simple to manage day-to-day, which has enabled a substantial increase in performance.
“In order to best serve our customers, we need to ensure high performance and availability in our datacenter, since any downtime is detrimental to our business and our customers’ experience,” said the company’s IT Security Department Manager. “This is why we turned to StorMagic SvSAN for high performance, simplicity and affordability in our infrastructure. With SvSAN, we are impressed that our overall performance has had a 100 percent improvement.”
