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.
