A lesson in collaboration – how Durham University and Proact delivered a more intelligent way to store data
The Proact and Durham teams jointly developed a solution based around our on-premises Storage as a Service model. We chose the most appropriate storage solutions for each tier of data, ensuring they were matched to the performance, resilience, data and protection requirements.
Can choose storage location & cost based on requirements
Capacity savings achieved of up to 5x
Reduced expenditure on most expensive storage
Pay per use
Departments can pay for the storage they need & use
Team can focus on apps & users, instead of maintenance
Systems maintained by Proact's round-the-clock team
The university’s previous storage solution was expensive to expand, complicated to manage and was reaching the end of its support life. The university replaced this storage infrastructure with another platform. Unfortunately, this failed to deliver on key requirements so the university sought an alternative.
Developed by working closely with the Durham IT team, Proact developed a solution that’s powered by NetApp and Pure technology. This architecture was designed in-line with Proact’s Storage as a Service model. The university’s data is split into different tiers, features deduplication and compression, and is maintained 24/7 by Proact’s Service Management team.
