On course for growth with the HCI complete solution

With FUJITSU PRIMEFLEX for Microsoft Storage Spaces Direct, Harrer Ingenieure GmbH has put the necessary technical foundations in place for further growth. This integrated holistic system enables customers to build and expand a secure, hyper-converged IT infrastructure while at the same time saving on financial and human resources.

When companies grow, classic IT infrastructures often come up against their limitations. This was also the experience of Harrer Ingenieure GmbH, which currently runs three offices in Baden-Wuerttemberg and is on course for further expansion. When the classic server/storage infrastructure was no longer serviceable, a new solution had to be found. The solution needed to be secure and future-proofed, as well as provide a service that was fit for purpose and take account of the hitherto Microsoft-based IT processes of the company. Following a rigorous benchmarking process, the company opted for the IT systems company Bechtle, which offered good value for money with a system based on Fujitsu components.


Small turnkey “data center”

As an integrated comprehensive system, the FUJITSU PRIMEFLEX for Microsoft Storage Spaces Direct is primarily based on the server and storage virtualization technology Storage Spaces Direct, which is integrated with Windows Server 2016. The hardware backbone is composed of high-performance standard components from Fujitsu, specially certified for Storage Spaces Direct and optimized for the particular use case. The PRIMEFLEX solution was delivered as a complete turnkey system: pre-configured and tested. This meant that Harrer Ingenieure was able to have a high-performance hyper-converged infrastructure up and running within a short space of time and with a manageable amount of work and hardware investment.


Solid IT basis for day-to-day business and expansion

Since their go-live, the benefits of the new infrastructure have been immediately apparent: The new environment has impressive levels of stability and efficiency, as well as providing a high level of availability when it comes to the company’s data. The latter is ensured thanks to the redundant configuration with automatic failover. So what other benefits does Harrer Ingenieure feel the new solution provides? An ideal product support service that takes the burden off the in-house IT team; and above all, flexible scalability in terms of capacity and performance, which means that the new IT infrastructure will be able to keep pace with the firm’s future growth.
