KARLSKRONA, Sweden, Feb. 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Compuverde today announced the successful deployment of its software-defined vNAS hyperscale solution for service provider WWI, a high-quality managed service provider in Denmark. This resulted in a 300 percent increase in performance compared to similar solutions tested and an estimated 50 percent reduction of total cost of ownership, while making the storage highly scalable.
The details are outlined in a case study, available for download at http://compuverde.com/media/154535/compuverde-case-study-wwi.pdf
Service providers are facing exponentially larger data loads that call for agile storage solutions that can meet current and future needs. WWI contacted Compuverde when it needed a suitable and solid back-end storage solution for Veeam Cloud Connect. The project would require hundreds of terabytes of storage from day one and, more importantly, the potential to grow to petabytes and beyond in the following years.
The Compuverde deployment delivered the following business benefits to WWI:
- Innovative storage: Efficient and cost-effective managing of high-volume storage. Compuverde's software solution leverages clusters of standardized servers to store petabytes of accessible data at the lowest possible cost. Its innovative approach distributes data access traffic evenly to all storage nodes, increasing performance multiple times over compared to similar solutions.
- Availability and scalability: Extreme scalability and high availability with less required administration compared to other storage options, along with the ability to perform hardware and software maintenance without any storage downtime.
- Affordable flexibility: Compuverde empowers WWI to take advantage of new hardware when it needs to scale, without having to replace its entire storage environment. This helps WWI stay ahead in its industry and keep up with all the new hardware trends, without having to constantly perform expensive "forklift upgrades."
- User-friendly management: The Compuverde offering is easy to install, configure and manage. "There's no longer a need for our engineers to attend week-long courses in SAN management. The management tool is easy to get started with, and with little to no training an engineer can manage the solution on a day to day basis," WWI executives said.
Carl-Henric Möllerström, vice president, Compuverde, said: "Service providers today are facing exponentially larger data loads than ever before. This calls for agile storage solutions that can meet current and future needs – without breaking the bank. Our work with WWI demonstrates that it is possible to increase capacity and performance in demanding environments while reducing costs and simplifying management."
Mathis Nybo, chief technology officer, WWI, said: "Compuverde has managed to make storage simple, without sacrificing either features or performance. The level of high availability we achieve with Compuverde would have been impossible with local storage. We have already begun looking into other areas of our hosting service where we can benefit from deploying Compuverde."
With Compuverde, you get a self-contained and flexible hyperscale storage solution completely built upon software-defined principles. Offering a single file system spanning all servers while providing full horizontal cache synchronization, Compuverde delivers extreme performance, scalability and reliability. Based on constructive and innovative principles while combining software flexibility with hardware efficiency, Compuverde provides the entire software stack with storage, cache, multiple operating system and protocol integration.
