IT Central Station – Case Study NetApp AFF

Bell Canada, a telecommunications company, have 27 data centres across the country, and wanted to be able to standardise them and do storage replication. NetApp helped solve that issue and allowed the company to reduce labour hours, operations, and time wasted trying to figure out moving data. The most valuable features were dedupe, compression, compaction, and the flexibility to offload cold data to StorageGRID. This case study discusses how Bell Canada leveraged NetApp’s All-Flash FAS to provide a faster storage solution for their VMware customers.
