International Service Provider's Data Center Modernization Virtually Eliminates Emergency Calls

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwired) -- Gridstore?, the leader in hyper-converged infrastructure purpose-built to optimize Microsoft workloads, today announced that Hibernia Networks, a privately-held provider of global capacity telecommunications services, has chosen Gridstore for their company-wide solution hosting all of Hibernia Networks' critical systems. The Gridstore system configuration, totaling 72TB capacity with Windows Server running in a Hyper-V environment, is installed in Dublin, Ireland and in Lynn, Massachusetts replicating data across the Atlantic. Hibernia Networks maintains additional locations in Canada, Northern Ireland, England, The Netherlands, The U.S and India.

Hibernia provides secure and diverse dedicated Ethernet, DTM, wavelengths and carrier grade IP transit services. As a true, end-to-end service provider, Hibernia also offers cloud connectivity, low latency connectivity, video services and HiberniaCDN for seamless anytime, anywhere content delivery.

According to David Gargan, Global IT Administrator, Hibernia Networks, "To keep up with our explosive growth, our current storage area network was becoming limited in its ability to deal with our complex technology expansions, our infrastructure was in need of a company-wide upgrade. We did a great deal of research ultimately choosing Gridstore."

There have been numerous benefits to Hibernia Networks' IT environment since implementing the Gridstore solution. Most importantly they have achieved a reduction in technical staff hours and costs. Additionally, because of the dramatic increase in performance and higher IOPs for both applications and database servers, they have been able to increase the amount of users accessing the systems. From a business perspective, Hibernia will not have to buy a whole new SAN when it is time to expand, they can grow simply by adding another node to their grid.

Gargan added, "Gridstore is easy-to-use, resilient and provides the IOPs we need while enabling us to add extra hosts without impact to the international services we provide our customers. For a global telecom provider with 217 points-of-presence in 89 markets in 25 countries that is a very big deal."
