  • Challenges

    The company required a clustered storage solution that could operate as a cluster and was compatible with their packet capturing software and Red hat Open Ceph as a SDS (Software-defined storage). The main issue was that the system created was not compatible with their packet monitoring software as well as Red Hat Open Ceph software technology.

    In addition, the cluster solution needed to store data for a certain amount of years that is in line with the requirements of the Federal data legislation. This creates a demand in trialling various components to ensure correct storage and performance functions required. Many first-tier competitors offer storage clusters but also lock-in clients in on future scalable projects, whereby expansion of solutions will not be compatible with different branded hardware.

    Ultimately, the company desired a specified and unique solution for their Storage and performance needs.



    How We Helped

    We offered a tailored IT solution that was compatible with Red Hat Open Ceph and met the specification and legal requirements across their data-driven ecosystem. We understood our client’s workload demands that focused on different use case aspects such as storage density and usage, software compatibility, performance profiling and scalability. Overall, fortifying a long-term hyper converged, flash-based, high performance storage solution that could be scaled up accordingly for future projects.



    Results

    The solution fulfilled the main priorities of software and hardware compatibility for Red Hat Open Ceph and packet capturing. As a result, the company looked to expand their project by implementing disaster recovery technology and implement the success to other data centre locations across Australia with our help.

    We were able to provide a local solution that met their purpose and specification requirements, paired with competitive pricing and the flexibility to make any necessary adjustments to the system. Not only did we offer high quality and suitable solutions, we also focused on delivering a high level of technical support and customer service through our expert representatives.
