WD-40 Company Eliminates Roadblocks to Accommodating Business Growth with FlexPod
Originally designed for use in the aerospace industry, WD-40 multi-use product is now one of the most recognized brands in the world. Their challenges are to accommodate continual business growth while improving availability and performance of business-critical applications. They chose NetApp to overcome these challenges. They have deployed a FlexPod solution with VMware technology at the primary data center and replicate data off site for disaster recovery purposes. The results of implementing NetApp were accelerated application performance, with sufficient headroom to accommodate business growth for years to come, provide 24/7 availability for business-critical application, improve business continuity by recovering data in minutes from NetApp Snapshot copies and position the company for growth with standardized infrastructure and processes.
