YP Transitions to a Simpler and Lower-Cost Storage Solution

Going from “classical” disaggregated IT infrastructure to a hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) can be a scary experience. For YP, the 133-year old company that created the original Yellow Pages, an HCI implementation to replace their legacy NetApp SAN and servers had a lot of appeal because of the promise of simpler and more agile management and lower costs. However, whatever they chose had to work – YP had over 60TB of digital content and 10,000 corporate users.  YP needed a storage solution that could meet today’s needs, easily scale to meet tomorrow’s needs, and eventually provide a converged computing/storage solution that lowered their operational costs. YP turned to Microsoft and DataON for their solution. In a two-phase solution, YP deployed DataON’s CIB-9124 hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) solution and storage that allowed them to 10X better SQL server performance for lower CapEx and OpEx costs. Find out how DataON can help you solve your storage and hyper-converged infrastructure issues by downloading the YP case study at Here, and the technical white paper on YP’s Exchange deployment using DataON at Here.
