For most companies, today Microsoft Exchange and SQL Server are mission-critical applications whose performance and availability impact the company’s bottom line. This was very true for YP, the 133-year old company that created the original Yellow Pages, which used these systems to manage over 60TB of digital content and 10,000 corporate users. YP’s Exchange and SQL Server implementations were being adversely impacted by their legacy NetApp SAN and servers. In looking for a new solution, YP had three goals: 1.) a storage solution that could meet today’s needs; 2.) easily scale to meet tomorrow’s needs, and 3.) 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 and Exchange performance, while realizing lower CapEx and OpEx costs at the same time. 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.
