National Fish & Seafood Deploys StorTrends High Performance Storage Area Network (SAN) to Manage and Protect Sea of Data

Resiliency, Redundancy, Lightning Fast Performance and an Unbeatable Price, Combined With Microsoft Hyper-V Integration, Makes StorTrends the Perfect Catch

NORCROSS, GA--(Marketwired - Nov 24, 2014) -  StorTrends® today announced that National Fish & Seafood, one of the nation's leading suppliers of seafood to distributors, retailers and restaurants, has deployed a StorTrends high performance storage area network (SAN) to ensure the resiliency and protection of its data, and consequently its business. 

National Fish & Seafood's value to its customers and partners is directly related to its ability to not only provide the highest quality and freshest seafood, but in its consistent delivery of the highest levels of customer service. In order to help ensure these goals, National Fish & Seafood utilizes an immense implementation of Infor Adage ERP software to support its team at its headquarters office in Gloucester, Massachusetts manage hundreds of transactions each day, and a highly sophisticated supply chain with hundreds of touch points, product SKUs, etc., as well as to support its buyers across the globe in managing thousands of supplier and partner records. Together, these systems and activity create a veritable sea of data, which can be as slippery as a freshly caught flounder to manage. In order to help streamline management of its front office operations, National Fish & Seafood recently updated portions of its physical server infrastructure into a virtual environment. In addition to easing management burden, the goal was to increase data protection and resiliency, as well as to reduce cost. National Fish & Seafood then turned its attention to finding a data storage solution that would further support these goals.

Working with Prevare, a leading end-to-end IT solutions provider, National Fish & Seafood evaluated a number of potentially viable solutions. In the end, StorTrends stood out and was chosen for its superior features and functionality, as well as its price. The StorTrends storage arrays, which were deployed utilizing two single controller units in a high availability (HA) configuration (SAN), have delivered the required levels of resiliency, redundancy and failover protection, as well as automatic data tiering and Zoned Bit Recording for performance, an easy to manage interface via its ManageTrends™ GUI, and certified integration with Microsoft Hyper-V.

"When we sat down with Prevare to review options, it became clear that StorTrends was the right choice for our business," said Andrew Marenghi, IT Director, National Fish & Seafood. "The StorTrends array had the specific capabilities we were looking for, the integration with Hyper-V and a price tag that was much less than we anticipated. A true value."

"The StorTrends HA configuration has lived up to its promise -- its failover capabilities have been tested and met the challenge perfectly -- allowing National Fish & Seafood to recover virtually instantly and maintain service availability," said Justin Bagby, Director of StorTrends. "And, because I/O performance remains lightning fast and creating new volumes via ManageTrends is easier than ever, National Fish & Seafood can efficiently and cost effectively manage its high volume workload environments, and consequently maintain its uncompromising levels of customer service."

"We are very happy with our StorTrends investment," concluded Marenghi. "I'm completely satisfied with its performance and ease of management with the software GUI, as well as the fact that it works seamlessly with Hyper-V. And, now the array is truly battle-tested. Of course, we are also delighted with the cost reduction we have seen since implementing the StorTrends arrays."
