The challenge

The challenge

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.

The solution

The solution

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.
