Regent’s University London had invested heavily and commissioned two datacentres within their campus and were looking for a solution that would increase resiliency through replication between different storage vendors. They also required extra storage capacity for VDI and other they were deploying. Shift F7 installed a Datacore mirrored system backed by Nexsan storage to replicate data resident on their existing NetApp Filer.
This was achieved, maintaining levels of resiliency, much more cost effectively in comparison to an end-to-end NetApp solution. Shift F7 also deployed a VDI solution across the two Datacentres using application acceleration within the DataCore servers to achieve excellent levels of data tiering.
"The DataCore solution with Nexsan storage allowed us to increase flexibility on existing infrastructure and benefit fully from the investment we had already made in our datacentres and VDI solution"
