The municipality of Hedensted has selected an All-Flash solution from Proact which has allowed the municipality to make power savings of more than 93% on their storage systems, as well as enhancing performance.
The municipality of Hedensted is running a VDI solution for 800 users, which places enormous demands on the performance of the storage system.
Support for the controllers used by the municipality of Hedensted was about to expire and could no longer be renewed. As a result, the municipality of Hedensted got in touch with Proact to discuss the purchase of new controllers. Their initial intention was just to meet their current needs. Moreover, they wanted to reuse their existing SAS, SATA and SSD disks for the new controllers.
After dialogue with Proact, the municipality of Hedensted agreed to acquire some larger controllers and at the same time purchase an All-Flash solution which could meet the municipality's requirements for better VDI environment performance. At the same time, it was necessary for the new All-Flash solution to be scalable and capable of meeting future needs. And all this was provided for almost the same amount that an equivalent hybrid solution involving mixed SAS, SATA and SSD disks would have cost.
As an additional bonus, the new solution has resulted in the municipality of Hedensted making 93% power savings on their storage systems compared with their previous solution, resulting in an attractive amount of energy subsidies.
As the municipality of Hedensted is already running a clustered Data ONTAP solution, there will be no downtime during the changeover as all existing data will be migrated internally in the cluster.
The team at the municipality of Hedensted were very pleased to receive the coaching and advice supplied by Proact throughout the entire process, so the decision on this purchase was not difficult to make.
