ESDS Software, a Managed Cloud and Data Centre service provider announces NetApp as the preferred partner for storage solutions.

ESDS, with its primary state-of-the-art, Uptime Certified, Tier 3 Datacenter in Mumbai (Mahape) has its secondary Datacenter located in Nashik.
ESDS was looking out for a fully integrated solution that could consistently deliver high performance with low latency and also provide with high capacity that is designed to scale out without disruption.
With NetApp’s fully integrated solution that comes with a single management window for the entire setup, ESDS was able to save cost and establish themselves as the early innovator in the global cloud space.
Piyush Somani, Founder and CEO, ESDS stated, “We are extremely happy to have partnered with NetApp. It was a challenge for us to find the right player that would help us set up an Enterprise storage system to achieve high performance with low latency and also provide high capacity that could scale out without disruption. Our concept of Floating Virtual Machine across Data Centre’s is a very unique and innovative concept, therefore the Storage technology required to make this concept successful had to be scalable and flexible. NetApp has helped us to find exactly what we were looking for and we are hopeful of reducing costs as we go along.
Anil Valluri, President, NetApp India & SAARC said, “Once we understood the innovative floating Virtual Machine concept developed by ESDS, we demonstrated the ability to cater to its current and future needs that primarily revolved around cloud and agility. Our solutions such as cDOT and AFF resonated well with their needs and we are confident that the deployment of these solutions will help them reap the benefits to attain maximum efficiency.”
ESDS chose NetApp’s FAS2554 with Flash Pool, Snap Mirror, Flexclone and Snap Restore to be deployed at its Nashik site for Disaster Recovery (DR) Hosting requirement of some large Enterprise customers. It has deployed NetApp’s SAP applications which are known to lower SAP storage and Data Management costs by up to 50 per cent.
ESDS also choose NetApp All Flash FAS (AFF) 8060 with de-dup, compression configuration and premium bundle for optimized performance at their datacentre.
This enterprise storage system comes with a maximum raw capacity of 7200TB and will serve as the backbone of the Hybrid Cloud delivered from ESDS Datacenter.
With NetApp AFFs, ESDS could reduce its time to market and realize the ease with which DR drills can be performed without any performance or capacity overhead.
