NetApp Efficiency - assisting in the future of emission control

Concorde has partnered with Eminox, a leading designer and manufacturer of exhaust and emission control systems for heavy duty diesel vehicles and equipment, to provide a resilient IT storage solution for their high-tech Research and Development facility based in Gainsborough, Lincolnshire.

Pioneers in their field and the largest subsidiary of the Hexadex Group with six European sites, Eminox use their in-house Research and Development facility to develop and test the next generation of exhaust and emission control systems, placing considerable strain on their data storage environment.

Big Data continues to loom with studies predicting that the average business expects over 50% data growth in the next 12 to 18 months (Gartner, 2013). The scope, scale and complexity of today’s data-driven world creates new demands for businesses and the ability to forecast the impact data growth will have in 2015 becomes an unthinkable task.

Tristan Hargreaves, IT Manager at Eminox was particularly impressed by the collaborative approach taken to the project, “We approached Concorde to seek advice around the provisioning of a dedicated storage solution for our Research and Development team. Concorde’s Professional Services team worked hand in hand with our IS team to provide data resiliency and scalability based on our long term data forecast.”

Concorde were able to design and implement an efficient and high capacity storage solution powered by NetApp, one of the world’s leading computer storage and data management providers, which will scale to meet new data demands in the next five years.

Tristan goes on to say, “Concorde designed, supplied, installed and now support our NetApp solution. Their approach was refreshing. They knew the technology inside and out and had the resources, tools and knowledge to respond to any queries we had. The technology is a perfect fit for our requirements and with Concorde’s ‘can do’ attitude, we’re confident that we are in more than capable hands. “

Concorde, a valued NetApp Silver Partner with headquarters in Wakefield, are one of the UK’s leading IT support providers with technical expertise in storage, data and cloud based services.

Gavin Lee, Business Development Manager at Concorde, “We’re thrilled to welcome Eminox on board as a Concorde customer. This is a great project to be involved in and demonstrates the strength of knowledge and technical expertise within our company. We offered the customer choice and delivered an innovative solution to meet their specific requirements.”
