Press Release (ePRNews.com) - DEERFIELD, Ill. - May 19, 2017 - Fujitsu Award Datacenter Partner 2016 to Concat AG
Stiftung Hospital offers 3 QOS levels with ETERNUS platform
Bensheim Germany – May 15, 2017 – Concat AG, part of Meridian Group International, Inc, was recently awarded regional partner of the year, 2016 by Fujitsu Germany in recognition of these three criteria: very well-trained employees, good long-term cooperation, and exciting joint projects. One of the joint projects was the realization of a lean, consolidated SAN with high performance at the Hospital for the Holy Spirit Foundation in Frankfurt.
“The storage systems of the ETERNUS family from Fujitsu offer us the opportunity to provide our internal customers with three different service levels,” explains Reimar Engelhardt, IT manager of the hospital. “Thanks to the modular design and scalability, we are not forced to change again in five years, because the infrastructure is growing with the requirements.”
The systems automatically support the transparent failover of the SANs in the two mirrored data centers – another decision criterion for the foundation’s IT management board. According to Engelhardt, every native operating system on a storage device is supported simultaneously in the entire cluster.
“Today, a hospital can hardly afford a halt to IT,” says the IT manager. “Our users must be able to continue to work in any case, including maintenance, failure of a component, or data centers,” added David James, Head of the IT InfraSys team.
