The challenge

The challenge

With a complex NetApp environment which hadn't been configured optimally, the archdiocese couldn't do anything quickly as too many services were running and the storage system could no longer support them. The organisation was also struggling with administration duties due to its streamlined IT workforce and at the same time, the archdiocese needed to ensure high availability of its services. A cost efficient, easy-to-manage solution was required.

The solution

The solution

Proact created a comprehensive design that could fulfil requirements for the next five years. With the new system, Proact's experts were able to meet the customer goal of 100% full virtualisation. A classic MetroCluster from NetApp is the basis of the new infrastructure which consists of four FAS8040 nodes that are distributed over two data centres. MetroCluster is supported by ClusterLion in order to reduce administrative costs, which automatically detects a site malfunction. Commvault Simpana was also replaced by Commvault IntelliSnap, this solution modernising backup.

If you look at all factors such as ease of maintenance, availability, administration, speed, scalability, as well as savings on backups, we now benefit from a much better price for performance.
