Tendring Council Gain Mobile Experience With ETERNUS Storage and PRIMERGY

"The Fujitsu ETERNUS solution is scalable to 1PB which blew the competition away. Fujitsu also represented the best price-performance with minimal commercial risk"

John Higgins, IT Manager, Tendring District Council

The customer

Situated in the East of England on the Essex coast, Tendring District Council is approximately 130 square miles in size, with a population of almost 140,000. Its Town Hall headquarters is based in Clacton-on-Sea, the largest town in the district. Other towns in the district include Frinton-on-Sea, Walton-on-the-Naze, Brightlingsea and Harwich. The Council is responsible for local government across the district.

The challenge

Tendring District Council needed to replace its aging legacy systems with a new virtualised server and storage solution that would drive down costs while increasing performance and introducing mobility.

The solution

The Council is installing two Fujitsu ETERNUS DX200 storage systems, with 90TB of data storage, and 16 PRIMERGY RX200 servers to help support its Microsoft Hyper-V virtualised environment.

The benefit

  • Introducing a mobile experience for employees increases productivity, flexibility and their interaction within the community
  • Ongoing costs will be significantly reduced through lower power consumption
  • Real estate currently dedicated to document storage will be freed up
  • One intuitive GUI interface can manage the entire system, making administration simple, giving the IT team more time to focus on strategic objectives
