Vidys Corporation, an ARES Security company, global leader in providing enterprise security solutions. Their goal is to help organizations from various sectors to streamline security operations, reduce risks and manage security events in real time for a more rapid and effective response.
The main task of the new data storage implementation was to provide suitable and efficient backup. However, there were other objectives ahead as well, such as:
- High performance
- Low latency
- Advanced data protection
- Good price-performance ratio
In order to adapt to increasing demands, old and aging storage architecture had to be replaced with a new, sufficient for growing infrastructure needs. After analyzing various products on the market, Vidsys reached out to Nfina, a long-standing partner of Open-E, and presented us with a challenge.
Replacing the old storage with an advanced HA cluster, with 52 TB of storage, running 124 Virtual Machines, working together with 100+ VMs on 106 TB of storage allowed to apply Nfina’s Hybrid Cloud service - an Open-E JovianDSS-based product. The software can manage an immense amount of data, and synchronize the whole infrastructure while providing public cloud benefits at a reasonable price at the same time.
"We provide software solutions that ensure homeland security and business continuity against an entire range of risks that jeopardize people and business assets, revenue,and operations. Nfina’s products and managed solutions, and Open-E software, play a crucial role in insuring that our security solutions are continuously up and running and maximizing the availability of our IT Ecosystem and ultimately, the protection for our clients"
