International Airport Manages Control System Data to Heat and Cool
its Terminals

StorMagic®,
simplifying storage at the edge, today announced that Amsterdam Airport
Schiphol selected StorMagic
SvSAN
to manage control system data in its backup power facility.
The airport's two-server solution with SvSAN enables firmware and
hardware upgrades to run during live production, and the systems have
experienced no errors or downtime in more than six years—and counting.

Amsterdam Airport Schiphol operates a complete, fully-automated power
plant, managed by a control system that reduces energy costs associated
with heating and cooling terminal buildings and gates. Netherlands-based
ENGIE, a value-added reseller focused on selling energy savings
solutions that reduce costs, reviewed and advised Amsterdam Airport
Schiphol to update their data management infrastructure.

"We replaced an aging system with a highly available supervisory control
and data acquisition (SCADA) system to ensure redundancy and meet our
stringent SLA requirements," said Bart de Goeij , asset
management/maintenance and operations, Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.
"SvSAN's high availability has delivered 100 percent uptime, thus
protecting our organization from fines and penalties associated with
downtime."

Amsterdam Schiphol's new configuration includes Dell PE520 servers,
VMware vSphere v5.5, Enterprise Plus Edition hypervisor and StorMagic
SvSAN Advanced Edition, and is running on a 10Gbit, directly connected
network. More than 70 users access and analyze I/O data for pump
controllers and industrial equipment, and remotely monitor the systems.

"ENGIE presented the two-server SvSAN as the ideal option for Airport
Amsterdam Schiphol due to the solution's unmatched availability,
affordability and because it complemented Schiphol's energy saving
requirements," said Eric Roos, Lead Application Engineer IA, ENGIE.
"Software-defined storage solutions like SvSAN have much lower power and
cooling requirements than large physical SANs."

"Edge deployments run onsite where data is created, giving users
unsurpassed control and management of their systems and information due
to sheer proximity of the infrastructure to the data itself," said John
Glendenning, SVP of sales and business development of StorMagic.
"Customers like Schiphol are flocking towards hyperconverged
infrastructure deployments now because of the simplicity, flexibility
and affordability HCI delivers."
