The company was founded in 1984 and employs more than 140 people at 20 locations across the globe.

Challenge

Growing data volumes on iba’s virtualisation platform began to slow down data access and backup processes. The existing infrastructure could no longer handle demands so iba decided to redesign and rebuild its data centre. The ultimate goal: to create reserves, improve performance and increase reliability in order to prepare for future requirements.

Solution

Proact took into consideration economic factors and technology trends to develop a cost-efficient and future-proof concept with products from Fujitsu, NetApp, Veeam and VMware. We then integrated this technology with existing solutions and optimised their use as part of a highly unified overall solution.

“Proact understood our requirements for this solution right from the start and thought very efficiently and customer-oriented when designing the systems and licenses.”
