“The demands made on modern IT environments that guarantee access to company data from any location, at any time, have risen dramatically within a few years,” says Gregor Kremsmüller, CMO and executive board member of Kremsmüller Industrieanlagenbau KG. The challenge was to share business data securely. High data mobility is necessary to transfer data between branches (Romania, Russia, Abu Dhabi, Turkey), suppliers and customers. Recognizing that data mobility is a critical success factor for business, Kremsmüller opted to continue its successful cooperation with Hitachi Data Systems to construct the solution.
“We knew that pure cloud solutions harbor risks, as the data is usually stored in different physical locations. We therefore made a very conscious decision to use the HCP Anywhere solution, since all data is stored within the company on the existing HCP 300, which acts as a foundation,” says Kremsmüller. The HCP Anywhere solution was the logical extension for reflecting all modern business requirements and equipping ourselves for the future.” It was not necessary to create additional capacity, since the existing HCP 300 platform owned by the Kremsmüller group provided ample archiving capacity.
