KISTA, Sweden--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Regulatory News:
Proact IT Group (STO:PACT):
Proact, the largest independent storage integrator in Europe, is to supply a new NetApp data storage system to software company Eniram. Eniram supplies decision support systems for the maritime industry, enabling ships to save up to a million euros’ worth of fuel each year.
Eniram’s systems collect real-time ship speed data, helping officers to determine the optimum travelling position, speed and propulsion of the ship while also observing weather conditions.
The new, scalable NetApp data storage system forms part of the overhaul of Eniram’s IT infrastructure.
The company is aiming for growth.
“We maintain approximately 10 to 20 terabytes of data, comprising the core of our business activities. Without this data we have no services, and hence no business,” explains Antti Peltonen, head of IT operations at Eniram.
Eniram has to maintain a massive amount of measurement data, which goes on increasing day after day. As well as storing data, all data is archived for the provision of various analysis services. Data must be readily and reliably available.
“We have looked at alternative ways of backing up data using public cloud services, for example, but in the end we concluded that the best way is to create the backups ourselves. As well as to NetApp’s Snapshot technology, we utilise various external media which we supply for long-term storage,” says Peltonen.
NetApp’s Snapshot technology facilitates the backup of active data within the system. This technology can be linked effortlessly to NetApp’s SnapVault if necessary, so allowing easy offsite backups to be made. This feature provides additional security for daily backups.
“SnapVault could be used to replace long-term storage. This would also improve the internal quality of service,” concludes Antti Peltonen.
Proact is Europe’s leading independent integrator in the fields of data storage and cloud solutions. Proact supplies business benefits by helping companies and authorities over the world to reduce risk and costs, and above all, to supply flexible, accessible and secure IT services.
