Proact delivers redundant data centre to the energy company Elenia
Proact delivers an updated data centre to Elenia, the leading energy company in the field of smart electricity networks, operating in several parts of Finland.
Proact is in charge of implementing a redundant data centre featuring NetApp Clustered Ontap technology to Elenia. The implementation of a new data centre is the result of Elenia’s requirement for more storage capacity and the need to centralise virtual IT services on two system entities. Updating Elenia’s infrastructure facilitates cost-efficient and easy management of the services. Proact premium support is also a part of the delivery.
"We were looking for updating and expanding our storage system and to make it more competitive. We needed help in the preparation of the storage system project update plan and particularly the migration plan.
Our interactions with Proact revolve around constant collaborative development in order to find the best solution for each issue,” comments Elenia’s System Analyst, Matti Lääkäri.
According to Lääkäri, Proact is easy to work with. Proact was responsible for delivering Elenia's previous storage environment as well.
”The client possesses extensive technical expertise, and often relies on us to confirm their conclusions on technical matters," says Proact's Sales Manager, Jani Lehtinen.
