Paper Maker Taps DataCore

MUNICH -- DataCore Software, the leading
provider of storage virtualization software, today announced that IT
service provider ISO Datentechnik has completed a successful server and
storage virtualization project at Felix Schoeller Group. With six
locations in Germany and Canada, Felix Schoeller Group is one of the
largest manufacturers of specialty papers worldwide. Schoeller selected
DataCore virtual storage area network (SAN) technology to complement its
VMware ESX Server systems. SANmelody was initially deployed since it
increased SAN performance compared to the previous hardware solution.
The system also provided high availability protection and then was
subsequently further enhanced by way of upgrading to DataCore’s
SANsymphony™, which provides the company with the unlimited storage
capacity that it requires.

“To migrate the consolidated VMware server workloads into the production
environment, we needed a high-performance, failsafe SAN,” explained
Michael Mohlmann, IT department director, Felix Schoeller Group. “We
searched for a technically mature and affordable solution, which we
found in DataCore. The DataCore solution fulfills our requirements in
terms of performance and high availability – and, in addition, we have a
very flexible and reliable SAN platform that gives us hardware
independence and long-term costs savings.”
