Proact to supply disk system to Lappset

Proact, Europe’s leading independent storage integrator, has supplied a storage system to Lappset Oy. Proact also replaced Lappset’s SAN network switches at the same time.

“We already had a similar storage setup, but this used previous generation equipment and was five years old. We were running out of capacity, and the maintenance agreement was getting more and more expensive because our hardware was getting older. These were our most important reasons for replacing the systems,” explains Vesa Takala, leader of the Lappset IT management team.

The new system supplied to Lappset was dimensioned on the basis of the performance analysis of the old system.

“Tenders nowadays involve transferring huge image and video volumes. Using such images and videos has massively increased the need for capacity. So we explained to the company how they could achieve savings using cheaper, smarter technology,” says Jouni Tuhkanen, Sales Manager at Proact.

“The supply contract covered a period of three months, and things clicked into place perfectly. We were even brave enough to replace the disk system mid-week as so much care had been taken over advance preparations,” says Vesa Takala with enthusiasm.

Proact supplied Lappset with a centralised storage system (EMC VNX5300) and SAN network switches (EMC Connectrix DS-300B).
