Laser Surveys Limited

Providing a robust shared storage platform for data

The Brief

Laser Surveys Limited supply spatial data primarily across the land and property sector through the online portal The data drives everything from a single A4 planning application map to design CAD/GIS data for major civil engineering consultancies or data feeds for large land or asset holders who require constantly updated spatial information and imagery. They required a robust shared storage platform for this data which their business relies on, so choosing the right solution was key.

Key Deliverables

  • Allows investment in a variety of disk technologies including SAS disks and SATA disks, thin provisioning, deduplication and compression
  • Highly scalable and removes the possibility of storage capacity being reached within it’s planned lifecycle at Laser Surveys
  • Provides cost effective, expandable and compatible storage, which proves best fit with existing infrastructure.

The Solution

Laser Surveys Limited opted for the EMC Clariion range as it provided high performance block storage from an array that will scale up as they grow their data sets. The dual controller fibre channel array gives not only high throughput but also resiliency. As a trusted supplier 101 Data Solutions continue to work with Laser Surveys Limited on IT projects to date.
