26/October/2016

Madrid, 18 October 2016.- Informática El Corte Inglés is part of the El Corte Inglés Group and specializes in technology solutions for business and managed services. It has been working with NetApp since 2010, after undertaking a thorough study of the market and deciding that this is the best technology to optimize all its virtualization infrastructure. 

The first NetApp solutions were used by its datacentres in Madrid and Blimea. According to Julio Cesar Candil, who is the Continuous Support & Cloud Datacentre Director at Informática El Corte Inglés, these solutions were "a tremendous leap forward in the way we provide and support our storage infrastructure". He added that few years later, in 2014 "we also decided to implement NetApp cabinets to support our Cloud Datacentre Service in our mission-critical datacentre being built in Murcia, due to the success of this solution at our datacentres in Madrid and Asturias". 

NetApp Technology "has contributed to our Cloud Datacentre solution becoming a market-leading solution" explained Jose I. Vaquero, who is the Cloud Datacentre Business Development Manager at Informática El Corte Inglés. 

Informática El Corte Inglés believes that NetApp storage is a vital component of the CLOUD DATACENTRE solution that it provides to its customers, whatever their size and requirements. As it secures MISSION CRITICAL datacentre services, within a secure environment, "using all the available resources (infrastructure supplied by the client, by Informática El Corte Inglés, or public clouds); and provides solutions and services that secure the availability of information systems supporting our customer's business", explained Mr. Vaquero. 

Advantages of this technology 

Informática El Corte Inglés manages over 2.5 petabytes of storage on NetApp at its 4 datacentres (Madrid, Asturias, Barcelona and Murcia), with FAS systems to boost performance, while reducing the cost and complexity of its virtualized infrastructure. 

It also uses a version of the NetApp Data ONTAP system, which can be configured in clusters. This has contributed to a non-disruptive volume of operations with large scalability, and secured high availability for its solutions. 

Moreover, NetApp technology has introduced other advantages such as: 

  • Centralized storage management at all the Informática El Corte Inglés datacentres.
  • Total integration of all Cloud Datacentre Solutions (hypervisors, broker…).
  • Performance improvements.
  • Optimized space utilization and energy consumption.
  • Integration with backup solutions, to guarantee that data is protected and secure. 

"NetApp technology is continuously evolving. It is secure, reliable and can easily be adapted to changes in the market, with a very efficient quality to price ratio. So I would recommend it to any company that wants to optimize its virtualization infrastructure and datacentres", concludes Julio Cesar Candil, who is the Continuous Support & Cloud Datacentre Director at Informática El Corte Inglés.
