Eibach Federn
Case Study

 Der Schriftzug Eibach ist rot und das Wort Federn in weiß - was zusammen das Logo von Eibach Federn bildet.

Quality, reliability and speed are important not only for the customers of Heinrich Eibach GmbH but they are also criteria for Eibach’s internal infrastructure. Thus, the data centre was recently enhanced technically by up-to-date blade server, fibre-channel SAN, high availability RAID systems and consistent virtualization. This modernization includes also a new concept for data archiving in conjunction with the document management system by PoINT Storage Manager on scalable hard disk systems. The old UDO jukebox, which has already been part of the previous solution, is reasonably used as replication device with additional offline media production in the new solution architecture.
