Storegate is known as "Your Internet hard drive". Storegate's business idea is to offer an external hard drive to corporate and private customers, enabling them to store, access and distribute digital information in a secure, comfortable, and cost efficient way. Storegate expects from a storage platform what their customers expect from them: high security, high performance and high availability. Storegate chose NetApp to overcome these challenges. They implemented ETAPP FAS6030 METROCLUSTER software. NetApp SyncMirror software provides the synchronicity of the data at both sides. With NetApp, Storegate is able to fulfill this promise while maintaining high profitability. NetApp storage is quickly scalable without causing any downtime. Storegate significantly improved capacity planning, and storage costs are kept on an economic level.
