"For applications where latency is critical, we rely on a combination of Fujitsu hardware and All-Flash storage from NetApp. The fact that this combination has been certified is very important to us."
Alexander Harth Head of User Support, Deutscher Wetterdienst
The German Meteorological Service, Deutscher Wetterdienst (DWD), is a higher federal authority that falls under the country’s Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure. It is responsible for supplying meteorological information to all areas of the German economy and society. This includes providing services that help to keep air and sea transport safe, as well as issuing official warnings about weather events.
DWD’s data center has to process enormous volumes of data from more than 2,000 measuring stations, 17 weather radars, numerous high-resolution weather satellites and a number of international data sources. This must be done with as little delay as possible to provide customers in the airline, shipping and emergency services industries with the high-quality graphical information they need to keep people safe.
For applications where latency is critical, such as providing weather forecasts to airlines or the emergency services, DWD relies on a combination of Fujitsu PRIMERGY servers and All-Flash storage from NetApp. This enables the company to provide visualizations of its modelling results with no time delay.
