Established in 1981, and a privately owned company since 2002, KT (formerly Korea Telecom) is an integrated wired/wireless telecommunication service provider, with the largest portion of South Korea’s local telephone (95% of fixed line telephone subscribers) and high-speed Internet business. Its business includes more than five million IPTV household subscribers, a public cloud for 1.5 million private users, and nearly 1,800 enterprise subscribers, along with a new data center with Softbank employing 700 racks.
With the explosive expansion of data from smart phones, the Internet, and multimedia, KT wanted a storage solution for its public cloud services business that would support growth now and into the future.

Mokko Case Study
Mokko Studio has been committed to the creation of compelling visual effects and animation for film, television, and commercials. With more than 70 experienced resident artists, the Montreal-based company provides cutting-edge video services, including multi-camera production and editing.
With an extremely high rate of daily data creation, along with high throughput requirements from network clients, Mokko was facing major data storage and retrieval issues. The company had to, on a weekly basis, groom large data sets so as to not run out of space. In addition, there was the added complexity of having to cater to all its in-house operating systems, including Linux, Windows, and OSX.
The entire system was far too slow and there was a growing need for a single file system in order to relieve management and access tasks. Mokko needed the solution to support the network load without any slowdowns, thereby keeping productivity high.
Municipality of Rheden Case Study
The Municipality of Rheden's IT department is responsible for providing services for the people of Rheden and the application infrastructure for its employees. The infrastructure is heavily virtualised with as many as 90 virtualised servers using VMware ESXi. It runs a significant number of environments, including Zarafa Groupware, SAP / Netweaver, Oracle, MySQL, Microsoft SQL, and many other Windows and Linux servers.
The Municipality’s HP EVA 4000 storage environment in its main office was suffering from performance and capacity problems. A decision was taken to replace the EVA environment and introduce a second storage infrastructure as a disaster recovery site to sync with the storage in the main office. The second site also would be used to provide a test environment and a copy of the production environment. The Municipality was under pressure to implement the new solution before any problems occurred on the old storage environment.

Queen Elizabeth's Grammar School Case Study
The school recently was struck with the common issue of effectively storing increasingly growing amounts of data. The school’s aging Intel SAN storage solution was rapidly reaching capacity and, as a result, was slowing down and not providing the performance required.
Under pressure to make the most out of the school’s allocated IT budget, Mr. Munro enlisted the help of high performance computing specialists VA Technologies.
The aim was to find a flexible and reliable storage solution at a competitive price—one that would significantly upgrade the storage infrastructure, increase performance, and not overwhelm the IT staff with technical issues.

The company’s Dell EMC SAN was reaching the end of its life and was struggling to meet the required performance and capacity Scalepoint. needed. And the coming growth would only add to that predicament
Simply Mail Solutions Case Study
With the daily increase in its customer base, and a significant influx in the level of email and Web traffic, SMS’ previous storage system was showing signs of strain. The cost of replacing or upgrading the system with the original supplier was prohibitive, so another solution was paramount to the company’s future growth and success.
SMS required a solution that was agile, reliable, and could handle the everincreasing IOPS requirements. The solution needed to be scalable, when needed, yet had to have some cost controls as expansion occurred.
Space2U Case Study
Like many web-hosting providers, Space2U was faced with the increasing problem of growing volumes of data and finding a way to manage it effectively. The infrastructure consisted of numerous physical servers with direct attached storage units.
This decentralised solution provided a low utilisation ratio and hindered the company’s ability to expand and develop new offerings for its customers. In addition, Space2U also needed a simple way to pool storage so as to gain access wherever it was needed.
Immediate access to mission critical data is essential for most of the company’s customers, and Space2U needed to consistently and effectively provide large amounts of data at very high speeds.
Spital Triemli Case Study

TerraTel Case Study
After moving to a VMware infrastructure, it became apparent that the company’s existing storage infrastructure, which included a number of different SAN solutions, was unable to cope. The company required a consolidated, reliable enterprise storage solution to underpin its virtual environment, but at the most competitive price.
Some of TerraTel’s reasoning for a major upgrade was that the company was spending about three times as much on storage as they had allocated. The need to control these costs moving forward was a critical company need.
In addition, performance metrics were suffering, productivity was down, and the company was concerned about meeting all service level agreements. TerrTel needed a new direction for its data storage requirements.

For education of next generation of engineers in aircraft industry the institute relies on professional and modern IT solutions.
The institute is an independent entity within Hamburg University of Technology. The building is located close to Airbus Operation in Hamburg-Finkenwerder and, thus, is remote to the university’s main campus in Hamburg-Harburg. When funded in 2008, the institute had the challenge to set up a new IT infrastructure at its site, meeting various demands of administrators and the growing numbers of research assistants, and students, as well as the nature of the research and education itself, which is heavily reliant on state-of-the-art computing services.
University of Kiel Case Study
The Laboratory of Specialized Hematological Diagnostics (Hematology Laboratory) provides a wide range of diagnostic methods needed to provide vital information for treatment of hematological malignancies in today’s clinical protocols. Diagnostics include classical methods such as morphology, as well as advanced methods inmultiparameter flow cytometry and molecular genetic analyses.
The consolidation challenges faced by the Hematology Laboratory were numerous, and included utilization of a wide array of servers such as Linux, Windows NT, and Nexenta/OpenSolaris. The end solution needed to integrate into a Citrix Xen virtualization environment. It also had to enabe both block (iSCSI) and file access from a single storage array.

The staff of employment attorneys, along with safety, HR, and benefits professionals guide businesses from all sectors, large and small, through the maze of employment issues, from the everyday to the complex.
Vigilant is a company that uses technology to advance its business. Ironically, it was all that technology that was crimping the company’s ability to grow and serve its customers. Using SharePoint 1.0, deployed on a Windows 2000 server in 2005, and then using WSS 3.0 since 2009, Vigilant realized that it needed a migration path from its older servers that were using aging RAID arrays. A major problem existed in that when new services were added (Microsoft Dynamics CRM, WSS 3.0, Mitel PBX, and VoIP phones), the system would overheat, leading to potential appliance and staff downtime.
