Customer

MDC BMS runs 16 apps on 1,500 virtual servers, all on the same storage architecture. Each is mission-critical and performance-intensive, requiring high levels of performance and reliability. Previously, the IT team had to manage seven storage arrays from multiple vendors, occupying nearly seven racks it its data center and producing a high TCO.

  • Management of several disparate storage systems was complex and time consuming.
  • Multiple disk-based storage solutions incurred a high total cost of ownership (TCO).
  • The company needed more than reliance on server memory to enhance app performance.
