Xpeedio optimizes mixed workloads with AiRE’s flexibility

A seamless migration from a legacy unit to a next-generation unified data platform, AiRE.

The customer

Xpeedio was founded in 2003 and has closely watched how the ever changing IT era has evolved ever since. Based in Stockholm, Sweden, the managed service provider’s mission is to simplify everything related to IT for their customers. Xpeedio provides a secure, GDPR-compliant private cloud and a comprehensive portfolio of managed IT services with a focus on support, operations and monitoring.

They are experts in the field and offer 24/7 support directly from Sweden. Their name, Xpeedio, is derived from the Greek word “Expedio”, which means to liberate, and they simply altered it a bit to make it sound cooler. This is aligned with their aim to liberate customers from cost and time consuming IT-related tasks.

The challenge

When the subscription for its legacy system was up for renewal, Xpeedio took the opportunity to look for a modern and more agile data storage solution. They learned of STORViX through a business partner and were impressed with AiRE’s flexibility, simplicity, and outstanding performance in a mixed workload scenario.

More specifically, when asked what the most important features are when choosing a data storage solution, Xpeedio’s IT manager answered: “latency, ease of use and accessibility. We have virtual machines and a lot of them. The solution has to be SIMPLE while still being more powerful and feature-rich than a basic solution.” Tomas Buckau, IT Manager Xpeedio.

The solution

One of the main reasons Xpeedio chose to deploy AiRE IntelligentFiler model 3128 was its flexibility to support mixed workloads. This flexibility is based on AiRE’s capability to automatically optimize datasets for a wide range of workloads with intelligent management of custom profiles and policies. As a result, Xpeedio is better able to provide tailored solutions to its customers and rapidly deploy new innovations.

“We always aim to have the newest and best technology in the market so we can provide our customers with the best solution.” John Josefsson, CEO & Sales Executive Xpeedio.

AiRE’s integrated data protection capabilities with always-on self healing and point-in-time snapshots help Xpeedio improve the efficiency and sustainability of its data protection process. This is crucial for ensuring high security and GDPR compliance, especially for Xpeedio’s private cloud, while meeting uptime commitments to its demanding customers.

AiRE’s simple and consistent user experience across multiple classes of memory and workloads enabled Xpeedio to get up and running with the new solution quickly. This also enables Xpeedio to ”spend less time on administrative tasks, saving our team a lot of headache and enabling them to focus more on value-added activities,” according to Tomas Buckau, IT Manager Xpeedio.

The icing on the cake, in line with one of Xpeedio’s key requirements, is that AiRE does not compromise on performance and features at all to achieve this simplicity. On the contrary, AiRE’s powerful optimization capabilities help Xpeedio tailor performance, redundancy and efficiency to a variety of different workloads, such as their many VMs.
