As part of its public cloud strategy, LeaseWeb wanted to accelerate infrastructure delivery to enable customers to place their mission-critical workloads in the cloud. LeaseWeb needed an enterprise-class solution offering low latency, reliability, constant throughput, zero downtime, and minimal administrative overhead.
LeaseWeb ultimately chose NetApp – to increase uptime, accelerate its services delivery, and maximize overall customer excellence and satisfaction.
“LeaseWeb can offer a level of service that often only large enterprises can afford to deploy,” said Robert van der Meulen, Cloud Manager, LeaseWeb. “With our current public cloud offering built on NetApp, we can take the extra step that we need to satisfy the customer’s needs. The continuous operation, stability, and great performance that our current infrastructure offers is a winning combination.”
LeaseWeb implemented NetApp All Flash FAS (AFF) systems globally, running on NetApp ONTAP data management software. By using solid-state disks and stepping away from traditional hard disk drives, LeaseWeb gained performance efficiency and sub-millisecond latency. Their servers would now work at higher efficiency, allowing CPUs to work to their full potential. According to NetApp, storage upgrades can now be performed without downtime and data can be moved between nodes without disruption.
