Compuverde Providing Bloxham Mill With vNAS Storage Solution


To offer expanded data center infrastructure services to iSME customers

Compuverde AB announced that it has enabled Bloxham Mill Business Centre, a provider of flexible and cost-effective alternatives to conventional offices, to offer expanded data center infrastructure services to its SME customers.

Bloxham Mill needed a storage solution that would provide synchronous data replication between two discrete data center locations at a competitive cost and without the complexity that normally comes with it. The solution had to support virtual and bare-metal workloads; block, file and object protocols; and directory integration, as well as offer secure multi-tenancy. All of these requirements would typically mean multiple solutions from multiple vendors, like a combination of Isilon and Nutanix. But Compuverde's vNAS solution and hyper-converged infrastructure met all Bloxham Mill's needs in a unified storage fabric capable of spanning multiple data centers.

  • Mirrored, distributed data: Compuverde can be deployed as a metro cluster, without additional hardware as storage controllers or FC switches. Within a metro cluster, data is synchronously mirrored and distributed to two independent physical locations.
  • Scalability: Bloxham Mill needed a forward-looking storage solution that could scale out nodes easily and incrementally. To scale a Compuverde metro cluster, new nodes are simply added at the primary and secondary location, without downtime.
  • Protection against loss: The Compuverde metro cluster tolerates situations where one entire data center goes down and the other one is still up and running without service disruption. Compuverde also uses erasure coding for additional protection against data loss; it increases the logical storage capacity of the cluster.

Ray Avery, MD of Bloxham Mill, said: "Our business is built on providing impeccable service to our customers. Compuverde has given us a fantastic platform to build upon, offering a level of flexibility and resilience which would have been impossible to achieve with a legacy alternative - and at a competitive price point."

Carl-Henric Möllerström, VP, Compuverde, said: "As organizations look for storage solutions to meet their changing needs, they can run into complex issues that require expensive solutions. Our unique approach enables us to leverage a vNAS metro cluster to offer a solution with significant improvements in performance, availability and simplicity. At the same time, it is easy to deploy and manage and doesn't break the budget. Together with our UK partner Ethos Technology, we are happy to help Bloxham Mill expand its offerings and position itself as a forward-thinking business partner for its customers."
