Strategic Storage for Hosted DevOps PAAS at CollabNet

less footprint more performance

DevOps customers know CollabNet as the developer of Subversion, CollabNet TeamForge and CollabNet CloudForge. The list of customers using CollabNet’s products and services is a veritable who’s who in the technology industry and they demand a great deal from CollabNet’s products and services. Naturally, CollabNet’s IT organization has to plan ahead to ensure their operations can continue to deliver at the levels these customers expect.

One of the areas they were concerned about was storage for their hosting environment. Their existing NetApp gear was aging out and CollabNet had to evaluate whether they should stay with the NetApp systems they were familiar with or change to something else that might better suit their needs. Obviously, flash storage was interesting to them as a way to keep up with their customers’ service demands. In the end they chose Tegile for a number of reasons that are outlined briefly below and in this webinar recorded with CollabNet’s Richard Moon, Senior Director of World Wide Operations and Corporate IT at CollabNet, Inc.

  • Reduce the footprint consumed by storage in their colo
  • Increase storage performance for data access on a worldwide basis
  • Easily understood by NetApp administrators
  • Multi-level cost/performance for primary and replication-target arrays
  • Maintain operations for protocols and data protection a la NetApp
  • Support increased consolidation levels
  • Provide encryption to meet their customers’ requirements
  • Introduce a new modern platform designed for future requirements and growth
