Language Weaver, a leader in automated language translation solutions, needed to control costs fueled by their explosive annual data growth, comprised mostly of ASCII and HTML data stored on NetApp 6030 filers. A high-availability pair of Storwize STN-6800 appliances was selected based upon their unique ability to provide 75% real-time data reduction while supporting the high-performance data access requirements driven by the NetApp 6030 filers which can have as many as 600 client CPU’s writing to the same file system at once.

“Our data grows more than 70% per year so we need to control costs while optimizing data center floor space and power,” said William Wong, VP of Engineering at Language Weaver. “The Storwize solution delivers a unique combination of data reduction and performance. With 75% data reduction we get more capacity from our existing storage, making more efficient use of our current floor space, power and cooling resources. And, we can do this all with absolutely no compromise to our storage performance requirements.”

“Language Weaver is a great example of why capacity optimization solutions must deliver both data reduction and performance,” said Peter Smails, Senior Vice President of Marketing at Storwize. “Organizations need to reduce cost by making more efficient use of their existing capacity, floor space, power and cooling, but they must be able to accomplish this without compromising the performance and accessibility of their business critical data. We appreciate Language Weaver’s selection of Storwize based upon our unique ability to deliver on these requirements.”
