Case Study - iSCSI based solutions instead of Expensive SAN
TBS were approached by a major UK brand experience specialist for implementation of SAN. As they were growing, needed a shared storage that can be used by different application and machines.
Problem Statement & Solution Offered
The client contacted big names in industry for providing SAN solution but all those solutions were too costly and time consuming for them. The storage was to be used for shared files system and as block devices for virtualised guest machines running on hyper-visor. The whole idea was to implement a solution which is less in cost, high in performance and open-source. TBS engineers gathered information and analysed to check the resources, effort and time required in the implementation process. Two raid arrays were configured to cater for different purposes. LVM was configured on top of those raid arrays. A TBS engineer installed and configured IET as an enterprise level target server to act as a SAN. Several testing was done to check the performance.
