Unlocking information faster
There are 23 water boards in the Netherlands which ensure that Dutch waters - from large rivers to small streams - are maintained and that wastewater is made clean again. This is also the case for the Aa en Maas water board, which is active 24 hours each day, providing services for around 744,000 inhabitants and companies in East Brabant. This requires a stable IT environment.
Proact supported the water board by supplying and configuring a new SAN and backup environment, based on leading EMC technology.
De-duplication to reduce physical storage
Employees can work together effectively
Supports round-the-clock operations
Aa and Maas was faced with the question of how it should update its SAN and backup environments in the coming years. The existing environment was ageing and was approaching the end of support. The water board wanted a new environment which had sufficient speed in terms of unlocking information, better utilisation of capacity, and which significantly shortened backup windows.
After working on an implementation plan together, Proact introduced EMC Unity300 systems for SAN requirements and EMC DataDomain for backup. With strong de-duplication credentials, a lot of physical storage was saved alongside backups being three times quicker than the previous solution. All employees now benefit from a solid information facility which allows them to collaborate.
Proact proved to be a very professional partner that resolves issues quickly and effectively.
