Hymans Robertson was set up in Glasgow in 1921 and is one of the longest established independent firms of consultants and actuaries in the UK. Their challenge is to replace end-of-life HP EVA storage system with platform that would enable future business growth. They chose NetApp to overcome this challenge. They have implemented NetApp SAN and SnapManager tools to enable deep integration with Microsoft System Center 2012 and Hyper-V Server and provide foundation for hybrid cloud platform. The results of implementing NetApp were full migration to NetApp SAN in three months, cohesive high-performing platform for future business growth, reduction of backup times from hours to minutes, bolstered disaster recovery, deep integration with Microsoft tools to provide hybrid cloud platform, rapid growth of compute capacity and enhanced service and product delivery.
