SimpliVity Corporation Key Developments

Coughlan Companies Standardizes IT on SimpliVity’s Transformative Hyperconverged Infrastructure

The Coughlan Companies is the latest enterprise to transform its remote office IT with SimpliVity’s leading hyperconverged infrastructure, the only hyperconverged solution that assimilates all IT below the hypervisor. After replacing its legacy IT systems with SimpliVity’s solution, the Coughlan Companies: Achieved incredible data capacity savings as high as 896:1 through inline deduplication, compression, and optimization; Improved data protection processes, enabling backup and restore in seconds, rather than hours or days; Increased performance for mission-critical applications, including Microsoft Dynamics AX ERP, by 20% in pre-production; Drove operational changes that increased productivity and significantly reduced total cost of ownership (TCO) of the IT infrastructure. The Coughlan Companies manages its entire multinational presence from a central data center in Minnesota including four remote offices throughout the U.S. and the U.K. Prior to SimpliVity, the company’s distributed multivendor IT environment had become increasingly inefficient, risky and costly to operate. The company decided to embark on a project to refresh and standardize its remote office infrastructure to streamline operations, improve performance and mitigate risks. After receiving outstanding results with SimpliVity for their remote office project, the Coughlan Companies executed an enterprise-wide Microsoft Dynamics AX ERP implementation on SimpliVity's hyperconverged solution. The in-house deployment model offered significant TCO and performance advantages over their legacy infrastructure and cloud-based alternatives.

Australian Customer Deploys SimpliVity's Hyperconverged Infrastructure Solution

SimpliVity announced that a new Australian customer has recently deployed SimpliVity’s hyperconverged infrastructure solution in order to simplify its IT environment and increase performance in its primary data center and disaster recovery co-location site. SimpliVity partner, The IT Consultancy Group, identified the management of a cluttered data center with aging hardware and software as the key issues facing the Sydney-based Credit and Investment Ombudsman (CIO). The IT Consultancy Group recommended SimpliVity’s OmniCube hyperconverged infrastructure solution to meet the company’s IT infrastructure needs. By deploying a pair of 2U, modular SimpliVity OmniCube CN-2200s in the primary data center and a third at a co-located site for disaster recovery, CIO has been able to vastly increase performance for report generation and achieve a 295:1 improvement in data efficiency; a figure that is climbing every day. SimpliVity’s OmniCube provides a globally federated, hyperconverged IT infrastructure platform that uniquely combines eight to twelve core data center functions below a VMware hypervisor. These include computation, storage, networking, backup, acceleration, replication and WAN optimization to provide real-time data efficiency, performance acceleration and global unified management in a single solution. The CIO’s legacy IT system was designed for the early stages of the company’s operations. Without any virtualization, the infrastructure impaired the CIO’s ability to expand and adapt to new business growth. The company’s servers were dedicated to running various applications and the organization performed weekly system backups and nightly incremental backups. While the CIO had only small amounts of data, this operation was manageable, however it became more challenging as the company grew. While this was viable for CIO’s early growth phase, a new strategy was needed that also improved data availability and enabled improved off-site data protection and disaster recovery.
