Getting it right saves time, money and frustration
“We saw that CTGlobal had the cutting-edge knowledge of how to set up a fabric domain in conjunction with our Storage Spaces Direct installation, and we decided to ask them to assist us on our project. We are in the IT provider and consultancy business ourselves, and if there are two things we know it is these: It is always worth doing things correctly from the start; and always advisable to base your approach on best practices and on insights from the true experts. Addressing complex IT projects accurately from the beginning ultimately saves you a lot of money, frustration and resources,” says Håkon Svendsen about Braathe Gruppen’s decision to enlist CTGlobal’s services.
Implementing a good storage solution requires expert insight which very few organizations have readily available in their in-house pool of IT professionals:
“There are a great number of tasks and processes involved in a successful installation – design, deployment, setting up processes, customization, validation, optimization and maintenance – and the more experience and expertise you can apply to these projects, the faster and better the results,” explains Jan-Tore Pedersen, Senior Consultant on the project for CTGlobal Norway.
The installation at Braathe Gruppen is based on Lenovo data center hardware:
“Lenovo’s hardware is without question the best hardware choice for the majority of our customers as the backbone of any Storage Spaces Direct solution. It is incredibly flexible solution that allows the organization to add storage space incrementally and on demand. Basically, it’s well-designed and well-built, and reasonably priced. As a result, a customer like Braathe Gruppen no longer needs to be able to predict what storage space requirements they may have five years down the road – they can just add space as the need arises,” explains Jan-Tore Pedersen.
