Case Study Announcement: StorMagic Enables E.ON Climate and Renewables to Achieve High Availability at 100 Facilities with SvSAN
The Storage Virtual Appliance provides a cost effective and flexible solution to help improve efficiency and shared storage requirements
BRISTOL, UK – Aug. 15, 2012 – StorMagic, a leading provider of storage virtual appliance solutions to simplify SAN adoption in core and VMware IT environments, announced today that it is helping long-time customer E.ON Climate and Renewables achieve high availability to manage their remote sites cost-effectively.
The E.ON Group is the world’s largest private investor-owned power and gas group of companies with facilities across Europe, Russia, and North America. Headquartered in Düsseldorf, the E.ON Climate & Renewables (EC&R) division is responsible for global renewable activities.
Uwe Fischer, Head of Asset Information Systems at E.ON Climate & Renewables (EC&R), is tasked with delivering high availability to over 100 remote renewable energy facilities across Europe. After an extensive search, Uwe determined that StorMagic’s SvSAN storage virtual appliance solution was the right choice.
With SvSAN, E.ON’s Climate & Renewables division has the cost-effective and flexible shared storage solution they need to centrally manage their remote sites. Uwe Fischer reports that since implementing SvSAN:
- E.ON achieves VMware high availability at a fraction of the anticipated acquisition and management costs.
- SvSAN’s user-friendly design and vCenter integration enable E.ON to deploy and manage shared storage at each location quickly and easily from the central office.
- It is no longer necessary to have any IT staff physically located at each facility.
“StorMagic’s SvSAN enables us to cost effectively implement simple, 2-server highly available systems with minimal hardware requirements,” explains Fischer. “With VMware® and SvSAN at each location, we dramatically reduce the risk of downtime for energy-production applications and eliminate the need for on-site support.”
