BarCharts is the premier publisher of quick-reference materials to assist customers worldwide in accomplishing their educational and professional goals. The company started out by running Windows 2008 as its IT infrastructure and consolidate into a single cluster shared storage platform based on Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 with the use of Storage Spaces.
The challenge that BarCharts faced was that they needed to consolidate the storage infrastructure while being cost effective and also supporting Hyper-V core implementation with minimum down time. The storage solution needed to be cost effective as well, highly available scalable and a simpler set up than the clustered shared volume storage solution for virtual application.
After reviewing their research, BarCharts decided to go with DataON Cluster-in-a-Box (CiB) Hyper-Converged platform delivering highly-available services and shared storage in an energy saving and condensed footprint.
Some of the benefits that the company received by implementing this solution were easy and simple deployment, hardware footprint reduction, being able to manage all virtualized VM on single box and many more.
