EMC, a global leader in enabling businesses and service providers to transform their operations and deliver information technology as a service, recently published a case study featuring the Novantas Solutions product PriceTek® Deposits.
To support the continued enhancement of its solutions towards more granular data and sophisticated analytics — and to address its rapid growth — Novantas added 30 terabytes to its previous storage environment in only three months, an increase of 100 percent for the PriceTek product.
With this increase in volume, novantas needed to ensure that there would be no potential latency issues. The company was anticipating more than 50 percent annual growth in its analytical solutions each year for the foreseeable future and needed to make sure its back-end environment would support this surge.
To address these issues, Novantas chose EMC® VNX® unified storage for its performance, scalability, and reliability. For increased storage performance and efficiency, VNX incorporates a FLASH 1ST strategy, which leverages the EMC FAST™ Suite, consisting of FAST Cache and FAST VP, along with flash and high-capacity disk drives.
EMC Professional Services handled the design and implementation of the VNX infrastructure. EMC partner CDI provided additional knowledge transfer and local training for Novantas’s IT staff.
Ariel Kornberg, Novantas’s vice president of technology, notes, “We liked VNX auto-tiering because we can grow our environment cost effectively. It’s a very flexible, agile solution, which is important in a dynamic, fast-growing business like ours.”
