The ETERNUS AF250 All-Flash Array makes Ongo’s virtual server infrastructure up to 20 times faster than previously
"The performance has markedly improved with instant responsivity, which makes our users more effective. Furthermore, backups are much quicker and less prone to failure. That makes my life easier."
Ongo has deployed a scalable Fujitsu All-Flash storage solution to support 450 users and 15,000 tenants, leading to a 20-fold increase in performance.
Ongo provides 10,000 homes for people on social or affordable rent primarily in North Lincolnshire. Along with homes to rent, it also provides a wide range of property management and maintenance services, plus support services to help tenants live successfully and independently within their home.
Ongo’s ageing collection of storage systems was suffering from poor performance and limited capacity. As a result, applications were slow, leading to low employee productivity. It wanted to find a cost-effective storage solution that would provide scalability and increased performance.
Working with IT specialist Central Networks, Ongo deployed a Fujitsu All-Flash storage solution. Over the course of just one week, 70 virtual machines were seamlessly migrated, covering core business functions such as document management, mobile applications, the tenant self-service portal and other business applications.
- Application performance has increased 20-fold, boosting user productivity
- Market-leading reliability has ensured zero downtime over six months
- The Fujitsu storage platform can scale easily as demand grows
- Simple administration saves Ongo 40 man-hours per week
- More time spent working on business efficiency rather than reactive tasks
