Challenge: With plans for expansion and growth, Cormar Carpets needed infrastructure and storage that could handle the new direction.
Project: Set up a flexible, modern NetApp storage solution that is able to grow and scale as the business does, as well as integrate a solid disaster recovery solution.
Outcome: Cormar Carpets experienced faster RPO and RTO around back-ups, the ability to deploy new systems with additional space, a more robust disaster recovery process, and better reporting and monitoring functions. Cormar Carpets has big plans for future growth trajectory, and the implementation of NetApp gave them what they needed to pursue those business goals securely. Cormar’s new tiered storage system enabled them to categorise their data by importance, resulting in their most crucial files being backed up every 15 minutes.
“We know there is going to be significant growth in services to the business, which includes the deployment of new database technologies. NetApp gives us the room we need to grow with scalability that is second to none.”
