Hitachi Data Systems Case Study: eBay
Source: Hitachi Data Systems
When the eBay online auction site was founded in 1995, it quickly became a giddy infatuation for online shoppers. eBay wanted to secure a robust and scalable storage infrastructure that would meet current and future requirements for availability, performance and interoperability with the Sun Solaris environment already in place. To master these challenges eBay chose Hitachi Data Systems as its solutions supplier. eBay deployed the Hitachi Lightning 9960 enterprise storage system designed for redundancy and resilience. The Lightning 9960 system continuously destages the data to redundant hardware that runs on an independent power source.
