Case Study: Capgemini

Introduction

This case study of Capgemini is based on a February 2014 survey of DataCore SANsymphony-V Storage Virtualization Software customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service.

“This is game changer which is ahead of the trend and key element to help organization to truly able to have a SDDC (software-defined data center).”

Challenges

  • Has been running DataCore without any storage-related planned or unplanned downtime for < 2 years.

Use Case

  • Has been able to defer 2 storage hardware refresh cycles using DataCore software.

Results

  • Realized a positive ROI in < 6 months with DataCore.
  • Effectively reduced their storage-related spending by > 25% with DataCore.
  • Improved performance by 5x since virtualizing their storage with DataCore.
  • Reduced their storage-related downtime by 100% since implementing DataCore.
  • Cut planned downtime on data migrations, upgrades and technology refreshes by > 30% with DataCore.
  • Turned stranded storage capacity into > 100% more free space with DataCore.

Thanks to DataCore, we reduced our storage-related downtime:

100%: 25%
90% or more: 35%
75% or more: 10%
50% or more: 12%
Less than 50%: 17%

Several Years without Storage-Related Downtime Thanks to DataCore

We’ve been running DataCore without any storage-related planned or unplanned downtime for:

8+ years: 3%
5+ years: 14%
4+ years: 16%
2+ years: 28%
Since DataCore has been installed: 40%

Der Wartungs, und Administrationsaufwand des SAN hat sich auf ein Minimum reduziert. Downtime des Storages gibt es seit Einführung vor 4 Jahren keine. Selbst aufwendige Upgrades von z.B. Melody auf Symphony mit Wechsel des Betriebssystems lief nahezu reibungslos ohne Downtime.

DataCore Customer Testimonial

Der Hauptvorteil liegt in der Unabhängigkeit von den Hardware-Produktlebenszyklen. Ganz nebenbei erhält man eine bessere Skalierbarkeit, denn ein Storage-Server ist viel einfacher aufzurüsten als eine Appliance. Die höhere Leistung – trotz Microsoft Betriebssystem als Basis – hat mich am meisten überrascht.
