Red Bull racing gets kitted out with hp storageF1 team chassis designers get faster back up and recovery across two datacentersRed Bull Technology, the company that designs, engineers and builds the chassis for the Red Bull Racing Formula One team, has bought hp owned 3Par storage.
Dual-redundant HP 3PAR F400 Storage systems in Red Bull Technology’s two datacenters provide a truly mirrored system between sites for full disaster recovery. For additional security, HP 3PAR GeoCluster Software runs Red Bull Technology’s disaster-recovery process by automating storage failover between primary and backup sites. Off-site tape backup and rapid application recovery are both enabled by HP 3PAR Virtual Copy Software, which delivers instant, point-in-time snapshots of data.
HP 3PAR Thin Provisioning Software allows Red Bull Technology to manage storage capacity upgrades in line with actual usage.
Red Bull Technology worked with OCSL, an HP 2012 Gold Converged Infrastructure Specialist.
“Red Bull Technology is a company where decisions need to be made fast, so we need a scalable, high-performance storage platform that supports our advanced IT applications," said Matt Cadieux, chief information officer, Red Bull Technology.
“Our new HP storage system enables the team to get the most out of critical engineering, manufacturing and trackside applications, which are vital to improving the performance of our cars. HP 3PAR Storage has also future-proofed the system by providing us with the scalability to handle desktop virtualization and more complex simulations over the next two years. The quality of HP’s technical resources and support has contributed to an excellent relationship.”
