“ Thanks to this IBM solution, the reliability of our data storage resources has greatly increased.IBM Storwize operates in a reliable and efficient cluster, so that we have two independent control points instead of one. The high scalability of the system removes any limitations from our plans for the future. ”

Danone is a French food products company that markets a broad range of products, including dairy products such as yogurt and cheese. The company began operating in the Polish market in 1990. Initially, it acted exclusively as an importer of food products, but in 1992, the first Danone production plant in Poland was established in Warsaw. Two years later, in response to growing market demand, production started in Bieruñ in the province of Silesia.
With growing volumes of data putting pressure on its existing storage systems, Danone in Poland sought to extend and virtualize its infrastructure in order to enable optimal use of disk resources.
Danone deployed two IBM® Storwize® V7000 storage systems, adding new high-performance disk capacity and virtualizing the capacity on its existing storage devices to give them a new lease of life.
Implementing IBM Storwize V7000 helped Danone achieve 40 percent greater efficiency in the use of storage resources, optimizing its infrastructure, simplifying management, and boosting performance and business continuity.
