Manor - A future-oriented, agile storage infrastructure.

Happy customers are key; a superior shopping experience the gold standard. That’s why Manor strives to create a welcoming atmosphere in its department stores, with knowledgeable and cordial personnel, and smooth processes to boot. Switzerland’s largest and most successful department store chain accepts no compromise. Not when it comes to service and not when it comes to IT. The company has a keen eye on the future and an avid interest in innovative technologies. It was hence a very fortunate coincidence when HP launched an all new storage generation just as Manor was in the market for a new system.

Solution.

HP 3PAR ticks all the boxes: Delivering I/O performance up to 220,000 IOPS, it supports mixed storage media including SATA, Fibre Channel and SSD disks, automatically balances server workloads with Thin Provisioning and threshold-based policies, and dramatically simplifies administration and provisioning of virtualised servers. With HP 3PAR, manor has opted to leverage some brand new technology.

During the evaluation phase, Manor’s IT managers have visited the sites of various reference installations and subsequently worked with Bechtle Regensdorf and HP to set up a test environment in order to gain first-hand experience and validate system virtualisations as well as application operation. Step by step Manor then adopted the setup in its production environment.

We have relied on HP storage solutions for years. With HP 3PAR, we are now able to leverage state-of-the-art technology from a manufacturer we trust. Naturally, there was a learning curve as we stepped into uncharted territory for us. But the support we got from Bechtle Regensdorf and HP throughout testing and implementation was exceptional.

Business benefits.

For Manor, HP 3PAR was a logical step in developing its IT infrastructure, employing state-of-the-art technology to drive its growing business and tackle new requirements. Indeed, Manor’s VMware specialists are very pleased with their new storage environment while users are thrilled by the significant boost in performance.

What’s more, HP 3PAR’s capability to use storage media with a variety of price points for different applications and optimally spread capacities means Manor was able to cut the price per Gigabyte used. A Mission Critical Support agreement with HP adds complete peace of mind round the clock.
