Proact IT Group: Ekro Chooses the Storage and Back-up Solution from Proact

UTRECHT, Netherlands--()--Regulatory News:

PROACT IT Group (STO:PACT)

Ekro, part of the VanDrie Group, the global market leader in veal, has chosen Proact for the delivery and implementation of a new storage and back-up solution. Proact provides a complete solution, including wholly-owned, 24x7 support for hardware and software. Ekro signed a three-year contract.

The storage and back-up environment of Ekro was already more than 5 years old, and in need of renewal. Ekro asked Proact to provide advice and a proposal for the replacement of the primary (storage) platform including backup hardware.

Dirk-Jan van Delden, IT Manager at Ekro: “We invited Proact to provide us with independent advice regarding the selection of a new storage solution including back-up. We were positively surprised by the wide-ranging know-how of Proact and the way in which they thought along with us as a partner. We have great confidence in this new collaboration, in which our 24x7 operations connect seamlessly with the 24x7 (support) services provided by Proact.”

The total solution consists of two EMC VNX unified storage solutions for two sites, including two back-up targets on the basis of EMC Datadomain. In addition to the implementation, Proact also provides a wholly-owned, 24x7 support for the hardware and software.

“With its choice of Proact, Ekro has ensured itself access to best-in-class, innovative products and services”, says Lucas den Os, Managing Director of Proact Netherlands. “The combination of EMC and Proact has been extremely successful over the past year after Proact became the fastest growing EMC partner of the year for the second time in a row. We are looking forward to a successful partnership with Ekro, and, together with EMC, hope to welcome many new customers.

About Ekro

Ekro was founded as a company in 1952, and has always specialised in the production of veal. The company’s premises became too small in 1988, and a new slaughterhouse and veal processing operation was built on the large Apeldoorn Zuid industrial estate on the Laan van Malkenschoten.

Since 1994, Ekro has been part of the VanDrie Group, the global market leader for veal, which is active in all stages of production. The increasing customer demand for bone-free products led to the building of a modern deboning plant in 2001. Ekro is the largest veal producer in the world.
