Ontario Universities’ Application Centre Selects Nutanix
The Ontario Universities’ Application Centre (OUAC) was relying on an aging IT environment, with HP servers and NetApp storage systems for its business- critical MS SQL workloads and web services. When it came time for a techno- logy refresh, the center’s IT team made the decision to look at some of the newer storage technologies on the market. “We were running out of storage space, and the NetApp systems were getting a little ‘glitchy,’ since the systems were over five years old,” explained Peter Schaefer, Manager of Systems Infrastructure and Facilities at the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre.
OUAC was originally planning on just replacing its storage systems during the refresh, since the HP servers were still under warranty. OUAC’s IT team made the decision to evaluate storage solutions from Tintri, Nimble, NetApp, Nutanix, and Pivot3 for the refresh. The chosen solution needed to provide sufficient disk space to accommodate 100% growth over the next two years, and integrate with OUAC’s existing backup/recovery solution and 10G network. The final decision criteria for the new storage systems included ease of management, superior reliability, and great vendor support.
