European retail display supplier secures virtualised environment with SANmelody

DataCore Software : 17 March, 2009  (Application Story)
DataCore Software partners Waterstons to install SANmelody as the Storage Area Network virtual infrastructure at Radford HMY Group, part of HMY France group, one of Europe's largest suppliers of retail display equipment to leading high street brands.
"Together with Waterstons we have embarked on implementing a new Virtual Infrastructure that guarantees the highest level of fault tolerance and availability. To do this, we have used a combination of two IBM servers running DataCore's SANmelody storage Virtualisation software to provide a synchronously mirrored high availability architecture." Mark McDonald, IT Manager, Radford HMY Group Ltd

Radford HMY Group connected the two storage servers over isolated Gigabit Ethernet links where all disk write I/Os are replicated instantly providing total '2-N' redundancy. In this configuration an entire storage server on the SAN can fail without impact to the attached Exchange mailstore or ESX hosts.

"Waterstons and Radford HMY Group wanted to achieve highest degrees of resilience but did not want to incur heavy set-up or annual support costs. The combination of two commodity servers running cost-effective SANmelody software provides this re-assurance and enterprise functionality such as thin provisioning, snapshoting, and increase in performance to boot," commented Keith Joseph, Regional Manager, DataCore Software.
