Consolidated Minerals Strikes a Motherlode of Storage with FlashStack

Consolidated Minerals receives a superior return on investment in its IT infrastructure.

Summary

Consolidated Minerals (ConsMin) is an Australian mining company that is one of the world’s leading providers of manganese ore, an essential element in the production of steel and iron. The company’s Woodie Woodie mine in western Australia has been recognized internationally as a source of high-grade, low-impurity manganese for some 70 years but was placed in care and maintenance mode in 2015 due to a drop in manganese prices. Executives, finance professionals, geologists and other key personnel are more productive with fast, reliable access to data and applications, and the company receives a superior return on investment in its IT infrastructure.
