SYDNEY, Australia, Oct. 12, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — NetApp® (Nasdaq:NTAP) today announced that TechnologyOne (TechOne) has implemented NetApp® Private Storage (NPS) on a FlexPod® data centre platform with NetApp MetroCluster™ technology to help reduce costs and increase performance for its global customers.
TechOne is Australia’s largest enterprise software company, with offices in six countries. The company’s software powers its diverse range of customers, which includes more than 1,000 leading corporations, government departments, financial institutions, universities, and statutory authorities around the world.
After the floods in Queensland in 2011 damaged TechOne’s data centre, the Brisbane- headquartered company decided to go all in with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to reduce risk. AWS did just that, allowing TechOne to have up to 99.9% resiliency. However, TechOne needed a storage solution that also provided the same levels of reliability and flexibility.
Because many of TechOne’s customers have seasonal workloads, for example, universities that have students registering for courses during the year, TechOne needed a storage solution that could react in real time. In addition, many of the company’s customers are global, with their data accessed worldwide, so the company required a highly efficient solution for stored data.
