Proact IT Group (STO:PACT)
Proact, the leading independent storage integrator and cloud infrastructure enabler in Europe, will deliver a new disk system to the University of Oulu. The purpose of the solution, to be located in a new data centre, is to store the home directories of 20,000 users, among others.
"Due to our high number of users, centralised storage systems is one of the most critical information systems of our university," says Veikko Suorsa, IT manager of the University of Oulu.
Proact will deliver an EMC VNX 5700 disk system to the University of Oulu. The new solution complements well with the existing storage system. With VNX, it is possible to expand and replicate the current storage system without problems.
Proact and the University of Oulu have been cooperating for a long time.
"The university's own information management people know a lot. However, they do not need to acquire all special expertise by themselves especially when that type of expertise is required very seldom. Our experts work closely throughout the project and even afterwards," states Sales Manager Kimmo Nurmivuori of Proact.
For the next few years, the goal of the University of Oulu is to solve the long-term storage and archiving of data.
