Chances are that your storage area network (SAN) is already feeling the pressure from an avalanche of data.   All that data can add real value to your business, but only if you can access it and use it instantly, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  To make this happen, IT managers need to be able to implement a single storage solution that can scale massively and cost-effectively, without causing performance, reliability, or security issues.

To address the high demand for storage in today’s IT environments, driven by proliferation of data from next-gen applications, customers are implementing innovative and affordable solutions to scale their datacenter.   In one of India’s largest states (Madhya Pradesh), 6000 government entities across 53 departments need to grow their storage capacity, requiring thousands of network connections ultimately deliver traffic to the ‘Madhya Pradesh data center SAN’.   Today, the data center SAN houses 120 TB of storage. Based on projected growth, soon it will need to support 500 TB. The Madhya Pradesh data center SAN is also operationally complex.  Read the full case study to learn, What difficulty they faced ?, How did they overcome the challenges ? and What results they achieved?

Business Challenge:

  • Increase SAN performance
  • Support QoS and other advanced characteristics across a massive SAN and multiple vendor operating systems
  • Simplify everything—management, scaling up, and eventual cloud services deployment

 

“We had expected to use 120 TB of storage capacity in three years and we used it in one year,” Rajesh Banbah, IT Head for Madhya Pradesh “Now with the Cisco MDS, we can evaluate storage needs every six months and scale in baby steps with pay-as-we-grow simplicity.” ( Read full case study here )
