Broadband and telecoms provider, BT, has chosen the NetApp storage kit to enable it to offer customers a pay-per-use virtual data centre.
The set up will use high end FAS6080c Clusters that have been integrated with networking and server systems.
This will then allow a Windows based virtual data centre to be run from one console.
BT’s customers will be able to set up a virtual server in no time at all.
In many cases, once the virtual data centre is set up, it may only take fifteen to twenty minutes.
This is a standard move by BT, as it is already using NetApp equipment and therefore know its limitations etc.
It is easier to go with what they know rather than going with another provider that may be more expensive.
