Telecom expands datacentre capacity
- 03 July, 2012 22:00
Telecom NZ has selected a storage array solution from EMC to expand its datacentre capacity.
An EMC Symmetrix VMAX data storage subsystem will used across Telecom’s business units including Gen-i, and will deliver capacity of up to 2.5 petabytes (roughly 2.5 million gigabytes) of data.
According to EMC country manager Phill Patton telecommunications and cloud IT service providers have some of the highest demands for storage capacity and system reliability.
James Allison, GM for shared technology operations at Telecom says, “Telecom's requirements for storage continue to grow significantly from both organic volume increases and the continually developing information needs of the business. This growth, occurring in both structured and unstructured data, is predicted to accelerate.
“The criticality of timely and reliable information imposes greater demands on the availability and performance of our very large data storage environment, to enable business processes and decision making."
Symmetrix VMAX (Virtual Matrix) is EMC’s high-end storage array. Each array can contain up to 2,400 hard disk drives, provide a variety of connection types such as FICON, fibre channel, iSCSI and gigabit Ethernet, and deliver expandability by federating additional VMAX units.
