Data 'generally'duplicated and ill handled, storage wasted

Suggesting data to be "generally" and "often duplicated and ill handled" during distribution across data centres, and that this resulted in "alarming amounts of storage volumes wasted and paid for;" PC House-owned Greenwhich Lanka announced that it had installed Dell's Equallogic storage platform at local safety glove and shoe manufacturer, Industrial Clothing Limited.

Utilising a Storage Area Network architecture where data is stored centrally and used by virtual data centres, Equallogic was indicated as being both scalable and economical by Greenwhich. And, according to Industrial Clothing's ICT Head Sumeda Gunarathna; “Our decision to go with Dell Equallogic is based on a number of variables. Dell Equallogic's simplicity and open ecosystem approach to storage management will allow us to enhance our functionality across our environments through interoperability, scalability, expandability and the support of cross platform environments.”

eanwhile, also revealed in Greenwhich's announcement; "Green IT, energy efficiency and flexibility are important goals for IT organizations today. It is our objective to help our clients meet these goals by simplifying data centre operations," according to Greenwhich Chief Executive Suran Fonseka. (JH)
