Made Hse was looking to create a brand new IT architecture through a unified data solution to ensure that its data storage, disaster recovery and virtualization resources would be secure and GDPR‑compliant. VMWare VMs and CRM systems played an important role in the existing IT infrastructure, and various performance improvements for these would be key value drivers for the new setup, such as faster I/O to VM. In the long term, Made Hse was looking to manage its data more intelligently and efficiently by taking a more holistic approach to the data lifecycle.
MBIT was helping Made Hse analyze their needs and find the best solution for its new IT infrastructure. After careful consideration, AiRE IntelligentFiler model 3122G2 was chosen as the centerpiece of a unified data lifecycle approach. As the heart of AiRE IntelligentFiler, AiRE is designed to automatically optimize datasets for specific workloads with intelligent management of custom profiles and policies. When combined with the platform’s true concurrent multiprotocol support and continuous protection from corruption, this enables AiRE to offer a uniquely simple user experience, superior performance and airtight disaster recovery.
MBIT had the easy‑to‑install solution up and running in no time and added value by helping Made Hse get the most out of STORViX’s 2nd gen unified data platform. Database storage was optimized so efficiently that a compression factor of 3 to 4 was achieved. That along with other performance improvements driven by AiRE’s AI‑driven optimization algorithms enabled a performance gain of more than 50%. As a result, the data footprint factor was reduced by more than a factor of 3 – without having to use deduplication. By managing the entire data lifecycle, the solution also makes compliance with data retention policies and accurate data classification much easier.
“Instead of having to choose between security, performance and ease of use, we were able to get the best of all worlds. Now we can sleep easy knowing that GDPR compliance and robust data security are in place. We can also work efficiently with higher performance for our VMs and CRMs than we even knew was possible. We are pleased with the professionalism of MBIT in selecting and implementing the STORViX solution, the fact we can meet the needs of our entire data lifecycle with a single solution and with the ROI we are seeing in the form of reduced storage costs,” says (insert executive name and title) at Made Hse.
