Hertel has established operations in Europe, Caspian, Asia, Australia and the Middle East, a solution needed to be found, that manages data replication to different sites. For VMware ESX server it was also nessesary to get reliable iSCSI SAN solution.
Another important point was the support of an uninterruptible power supply and a rich feature set with expansion options to be prepared for future challenges.
After an intensive evaluation of various available solutions on the market, the decision fell on euroNAS. The main arguments that led to the decision, was the cross-site data synchronization functionalty, the extensive feature set and UPS support.
The Hertel AG today uses several euroNAS installations primarily used as data server, iSCSI SAN Storage for VMware ESX and as a backup server.
“euroNAS was the only software that supported all features we needed out of the box. I can highly recommend it.”
