Simplified data management, ensuring a high performance, robust, future-proof data infrastructure, reflecting Marrickville Council’s commitment to its community to deliver high performing services

Solution delivered in partnership with:

Marrickville, with a population of 81,000, is one of the most diverse, vibrant and innovative communities in Australia. Inner West Council plays an important role in the community with a mission to be a responsive, innovative and efficient council that exercises leadership and builds community strength.

As technology use within the Council became all pervasive, the organisation was hit with the first of its challenges:

  • unprecedented data growth that had a cascading effect on performance affecting the users, operations and storage

As performance, manageability and scalability were high on the list of requirements, VMtech positioned migration to a hybrid NetApp array running Clustered Data ONTAP and optimizing performance and capacity by tiering the storage with Flash technology. As the next step, VMtech looked at a holistic backup/recovery and DR platform. VMtech’s solution provided several benefits to the council.
