The problem

VUB and IIHE were searching for a solution to fit the requirements of their T2B project to establish a large computing facility for physics experiments. The solution needed to accommodate 1000s of existing local and remote users while allowing for future growth. The project also required Business Continuity, a robust data security feature set and a smart set of performance and efficiency technologies to keep costs down.

The solution

Deploy a powerful 200TB Syneto HA series storage cluster that easily accommodates the current user base while maintaining easy scalability. Achieve Business Continuity with a multi-node high availability cluster, completely protect stored data with end-to-end data integrity and fast data snapshots while yielding high performance and efficiency with hybrid storage pools, in-line deduplication and compression.
