DataCore Software-Defined Storage Replicates Critical Data Center Infrastructure between the USA and Europe for JULABO
JULABO GmbH is one of the foremost providers of high-quality, reliable and high-performance “Made in Germany” temperature control solutions for high-tech industries. The company recently chose the DataCore SANsymphony™ software-defined storage platform to support its flexible virtual infrastructure, to ensure business continuity and high performance of VMware vSphere virtual machines synchronized across German and U.S. data centers.
With 10 branch offices on three continents and more than 400 employees, the central IT team provides support for Microsoft Dynamics ERP and other business-critical applications. JULABO was faced with the need to move data between its remote sites and to headquarters, while also supporting rapid growth and new business requirements in its local markets. Growing workloads caused increased demand for high availability and greater flexibility, prompting it to implement a comprehensive virtual infrastructure across the entire organization.
DataCore partner and system integrator Leitwerk AG was commissioned to implement DataCore SANsymphony on the main site. Today JULABO maintains mirrored computer centers in two different sites, protected with various fire compartments, as well as a third computer center located to support off-site storage of backups. All systems are virtualized, with workloads running across 170 virtual machines on redundantly designed VMware ESX servers on HP Proliant hardware, each with 768 GB RAM and 16 cores. The sites are connected via a high-performance fibre channel network.
