Insurance giant simplifies infrastructure with HDS virtualization solutions

File attachment: 

German insurance company HUK-Coburg has been diligent in its determination to manage data growth as efficiently and cost effectively as possible. With expansion of the insurance services and products it provides to more than 8.8 million German households, and an accumulation of acquisitions and branch offices, HUK-Coburg has experienced several surges in the volume and complexity of its storage environment. As requirements for availability, performance and scalability increased so did the need to simplify administration and reduce both capital and operational expenses.

To adeptly meet new business conditions, HUK-Coburg implemented a wholly virtualized, multitiered storage solution based on a pair of Hitachi Universal Storage Platform™ V systems.

HUK-Coburg makes extensive use of Hitachi data mobility and virtualization technologies to dramatically simplify its storage environment, improve storage utilization, and reduce operational costs and risks. The entire storage infrastructure is managed as a single pool of virtualized storage via a single, easy-to-use management interface. HUK-Coburg uses Hitachi Tiered Storage Manager software and Hitachi Tuning Manager software to further define the capabilities of the enterprise and simplify how data is migrated and monitored throughout the tiered architecture.
