Mobility Drives Car Sharing Into the Cloud Using NetApp SAN Storage
Mobility is Europe's largest independent car-sharing platform. Mobility is Switzerland's leading car-sharing provider. It handles 5,500 reservations every day, processing 93% of them electronically. Due to the huge importance of online bookings, 24/7 availability is an absolute must. They need to set up remote data centers, improve availability, renew data protection, and introduce a strategic e-business platform to boost international growth. Mobility chose NetApp to overcome these challenges. They implemented NetApp storage with cross-mirrored data and integrated backup combined with server virtualization using VMware vSphere. The results of deploying were provided a single platform for all requirements, supports corporate growth through scalable architecture, delivers top performance, and created highly available basis for cloud offering and released up to 90% storage space for virtual machines by deduplication.
