"We felt that Fujitsu and microstaxx really understood our needs and provided excellent advice throughout the preparation stage of this project."
Sebastian Schölzel IT Manager, Fraunhofer IVI
The Fraunhofer Institute for Transportation and Infrastructure Systems (Fraunhofer IVI) in Dresden focuses on the key areas of transport planning and ecology, traffic information, vehicle, drive, sensor technology and telematics, information and communication to the areas disposition and logistics. Its electronic ticketing application, mobile public transport navigation solution, and cross-border disaster protection system have received particular recognition. It operates a number of high-performance laboratories with innovative test platforms and vehicles as well as modern IT structures.p>
The Fraunhofer IVI wants to focus more heavily on big data applications going forward. To lay the foundations for this, it required a performant, scalable storage infrastructure for VMware applications such as virtual machines and database and web applications.
The FUJITSU Storage ETERNUS DX500 particularly impressed the Fraunhofer IVI with its Extreme Cache feature, which delivers high performance without tiering. The Institute also installed FUJITSU ETERNUS Snapshot Manager (ESM) and ETERNUS SF Storage Cruiser for visualizations.
