Source: Sun Microsystems
O2 wanted to streamline and simplify storage management and increase ability to respond to new requirements. The challenge was to minimize costs associated with managing storage. As lead contractor, Sun directed the consolidation of O2's heterogeneous storage landscape onto a central SAN infrastructure. In partnership with HDS and Brocade, Sun designed the storage architecture and migrated the data without affecting production operations. Sun provided performance analyses, advised on storage layout and developed proofs of concept for disk-to-disk backup and reporting. Sun also implemented a tiered storage architecture to lower costs and provide better support for O2's business processes.
