Digitisation steered by software-defined data centre technology
As a leading-edge software developer, Ambientia has every reason to have high ambitions for its own IT infrastructure. A software-defined storage platform supported by Proact enables Ambientia to build and deliver cloud-ready applications tailored to customer needs. When it came to building this solution, zero downtime was the first, but not only, critical requirement.
On-demand automated storage provisioning built into customer applications
Software defined storage facilitates adaptation to different use cases
Partnership with Proact includes updates and consulting on new technology
Ambientia wanted to implement software-defined storage to meet the evolving requirements of its software development. The storage solution should match the flexible cloud deployment options offered to customers, deliver predictable performance with a clear upgrade path, combined with optimised lifecycle costs.
To manage Ambientia’s transformation and enable development for all clouds, the company’s own IT infrastructure has evolved over time. For more than a decade, Proact has supported Ambientia’s three data centres, which now form a private cloud.
At the heart of this infrastructure you’ll find a server environment with some 600 virtual machines and clustered NetApp FAS All-Flash (AFF) storage arrays, together with backup and archiving using low-cost mass storage.
Proact is an excellent IT partner, not only for support and maintenance. We also appreciate them as a good source of news, sharing information and letting us know what’s brewing in the storage world.
