Fully Redundant Stretched-Metro SAN Solution

"You won't find another company in server & storage solutions that extends its service so well"
Fabrice Zander, IT Manager, Boost Group

Boost group needed a server and storage solution with 100% guaranteed uptime. S3S installed a full SAN solution connecting 300 meters between two buildings of the Boost Group headquarters in Hulst (Netherlands)

This allowed Boost Group to create the flexibility that they were looking for towards their customers. It also gave them the ability to start new projects fast and create new link-ups for their customers to its systems.

The price tag for the installation & maintenance was very sharp, 30% lower than its competitors!

Meeting stiff requirements

In addition to high availability and cost-effectiveness, the solution also needed to be flexible and easily scalable. "We wanted to increase the flexibility of services to our customers; a cutting-edge dynamic solution for hosting their websites & back offices for financial transactions at their webshops."

The solution connected two machines in different buildings at the company’s headquarters for server & storage purposes. A 300 meter optical fiber cable was used with six physical connections.

"In case of an unexpected power outage, we can seamlessly switch between the two machines at each physical location", said Zander. "It also allow us to perform maintenance without anyone noticing a performance drop. It is an extremely stable system."
