About Naquadria

Naquadria is a managed IT resources provider that manages the entire supply chain from start to finish with its own high-performance data center. This allows the company to serve both multinationals in sectors such as aerospace and oil and SMEs with top-of-the-line hosting and colocation services built on unprecedented support and customization. Naquadria provides complete technological support for websites with domain registrar services, email hosting featuring extra-strong anti-spam capabilities, and a variety of web hosting packages utilizing the absolute latest in CMS technology.

Naquadria was born when IT industry experts with more than 10 years of experience came together and pooled their collective expertise and guru-level skills to build a data center that is one of a kind in the Piacenza province of northern Italy. The company ensures outstanding redundancy with both electrical and network safety systems. With UNI CEI EN ISO/IEC 27001:2017 certification, Naquadria also provides 100% GDPR compliance for virtual machines and data stored in its data center. The data center and related services focus on combining business and technology perspectives to add lasting value for clients with superior performance and tailor made solutions.

The challenge

Given Naquadria’s high-profile clientele and its emphasis on ensuring top performance, the company was looking for even better equipment to get the most out of its high-performance data center and related services. Therefore, bringing down energy consumption was a major priority in order to cut costs and improve profitability. Ensuring greater data storage flexibility was also a critical parameter for being able to keep its customer promise of providing tailored and customized solutions. Making data storage more flexible would also enable Naquadria to achieve efficiency improvements and optimize processes such as provisioning and moving virtual machines.

The solution

Given STORViX’s Italian roots and strong track record in the Italian market, it was only natural that the companies crossed paths. To meet Naquadria’s consumption and flexibility needs, STORViX delivered AiRE IntelligentFiler model 3122. As the heart of IntelligentFiler, AiRE has powerful features that serve as the lifeblood of the full AiRE IntelligentFiler solution. These features provide continuous protection from corruption, disasters and breaches while optimal performance is always ensured by automating I/O path management, application profile recognition and data reduction.

With AiRE IntelligentFiler, Naquadria saw clear improvements in energy consumption and data storage flexibility. After being impressed with the capabilities of AiRE IntelligentFiler and the expertise and flexibility STORViX brought to the table, the two companies embarked on a strategic partnership. Together, they have tested a variety of units and configurations and engaged in several specific R&D projects to find groundbreaking new ways to add value for clients. 

In pursuit of their joint strategy, STORViX also developed dedicated units to match specific requests from Naquadria. This demonstrates the alignment of the two companies’ ways of working by customizing and going the extra mile to find the best solution in specific circumstances. The partnership has been praised as a success by both STORViX CTO Luca Minoja and Naquadria CEO Alessandro Solari, they both look forward to what it will bring in the future.
