Why did they come to us?
Axill Europe approached Apple for help directly, but when the scope of their project proved too wide to address using only Apple solutions, Apple recommended that Axill get in touch with us.

What did they need?
High-availability SAN storage for 30 public-facing web servers at their London data centre.

How did we help?
Our consultants worked with Axill to ascertain their requirements. Axill needed highly- scalable backend storage, so we began with support for 30 web servers at their London data centre. Their other needs included the initial provision of between 100 and 300 Terabytes of shared storage, full file-level read-write access from each server to all data volumes (accessible from Windows and Linux), fault tolerance and load balancing, and extra options for data replication and mirroring.

What were the benefits?
Axill Europe’s servers are now supported by a fast, Fibre Channel storage setup that’s highly scalable, supports intelligent load balancing and offers a high level of redundancy.
