Increases the availability and performance of Nexica’s data centre infrastructure by 100%
ICT infrastructure managed services provider Nexica has selected EMC VNX unified storage, together with Cisco UCS and VMware virtualisation and cloud infrastructure technologies, to power its public cloud services for its exceptional performance, efficiency, simplicity and data protection.
With EMC VNX unified storage, Nexica has increased the availability and performance of its data centre infrastructure by 100% and achieved 20% cost savings by optimising storage utilisation and reducing power usage.
With the integration of EMC Unisphere software with Cisco and VMWare virtualisation and cloud infrastructure offerings in Nexica’s environment, the IT administrators can manage Nexica’s infrastructure through a single-pane view and devote lesser time for maintenance and configuration.
Nexica’s environment also includes Cisco UCS blade servers and VMware vCenter, VMware vCloud Director and VMware vShield.
With EMC VNX, Nexica has centralised and simplified its storage management, while having the required scalability and availability levels to automatically manage storage requirements needed to meet its client’s SLAs.
Nexica Technology and Operations director David Suárez said with EMC, Nexica now has the ability to automatically ensure that each client receives the best quality of services in accordance to their storage needs, as well as the ability to scale should their needs suddenly change.
"Since deploying EMC unified storage, we have been very pleased with the results as we have experienced 100% improvement in storage performance in relation to the previous infrastructure. We have also decided to standardize all of our services and mission critical applications on EMC unified storage," said Suárez.
Nexica managing director Jordi Mas said ErmesTel has understood Nexica’s needs and has become its business advisor for technological decisions and strategy.
"They’ve accompanied us in implementing the new Cloud Computer architecture and proven themselves to be specialists in infrastructure consolidation," said Mas
