Who is

Pöttinger Landtechnik, founded in Grieskirchen in 1871, is an innovative and reliable partner for agriculture worldwide.

Pöttinger has production sites in Austria, Germany and the Czech Republic, as well as numerous sales locations in Europe, Canada, Australia and China.

CANCOM Austria emerged from K-Businesscom (formerly Kapsch BusinessCom) at the beginning of 2024. The following case study was written before that and therefore the text was left in the original version.

Business Challenge

The initial situation was the need to expand the capacity of the existing Hitachi VSP G400 storage solution. The installation of an additional data center was intended to increase the availability of the IT infrastructure and improve reliability.

  • Planning
  • Commissioning
  • Data migration
  • Failure test
  • Transfer to operation
  • Support during operation
  • Hitachi Vantara mid-range enterprise storage systems from the E series (Hitachi VSP E990)
  • Synchronous data mirroring on both data center sites, networking via geo-redundant fiber optic connections
  • Maintenance of IT operations in the event of failure of a storage system, data center or fiber optic transmission link
  • The Hitachi E990 storage system (based on NVMe flash storage technology) offers consistently low latency with significantly improved performance
  • Transparent data reduction function increases the efficiency of storage usage and optimizes the energy and space requirements in the data centers
  • Sustainable improvement of the entire IT system
  • Increased security and availability
  • Future-proof and investment-proof solution
  • Comprehensive services

We can't say it any other way: the KBC solution with the new Hitachi Vantara storage is working to our complete satisfaction. Thanks to the comprehensive support from the initial consultation through to support during operation, our trust in KBC as a trusted advisor has once again been confirmed.
