The customer operated HDS VSP G600 disk arrays that were approaching the end of their intended service life. The performance of the original disk arrays had been at the limits of the hardware capabilities throughout their lifetime, causing dissatisfaction and operational problems.
Objectives and requirements
The primary requirement was a technology update of the storage infrastructure. An additional requirement was to implement a storage solution that would provide sufficient performance to meet the demanding needs of the customer.
Based on the customer’s requirement, we implemented a pair of Hitachi VSP G5500 disk arrays in the High Availability (HA) configuration. HA is based on Global Active Device (GAD) technology and protects the customer from any HW failure or failure of the entire disk array. In addition to the implementation, we also took care of data migration from existing disk arrays at Tatra banka. Thanks to the professionalism and years of experience of the PosAm team, we delivered the migration within the required time-frame.
With the deployment of this innovative storage technology, Tatra banka has ensured reliable operation of its applications for a minimum period of 5 years. By implementing flash technology, all applications get the fastest possible response time of the storage infrastructure, leading to data processing at the maximum possible speed. Tatra banka customers will feel this in the form of a quick response to any request. Thanks to the implementation of top-of-the-line disk arrays, Tatra banka has sufficient performance for its applications that will enable it to maintain the long-term satisfaction of its customers and business partners.
PosAm, as a long-time reliable partner in the field of Hitachi Vantara disk array support, has contributed also with this activity to the modernisation of our IT infrastructure and the improvement of the environment for banking applications, which continuously require a more powerful and modern infrastructure.
