Transportation and logistics firm replaces legacy storage platform with PogoStorage ZFS-based solution for uninterrupted, round-the-clock data access.

"The Pogo-Nexenta StorageDirector integrated solution enabled Landair to deploy a scalable HA cluster solution while reducing costs and storage administration," said Erik Logan, CEO of Pogo Linux.

Pogo Storage (http://www.pogostorage.com), a market leader in ZFS Software Defined Storage integration and a division of Pogo Linux (http://www.pogolinux.com), announced that Landair, a full-service transportation and logistics firm based in Greeneville, Tennessee, has upgraded its infrastructure with a Pogo StorageDirector unified storage solution powered by NexentaStor (http://www.nexenta.com). Landair’s technology infrastructure must deliver uninterrupted, 24x7 data access to its drivers and clients. Moving to an Open Storage platform based on ZFS allowed Landair to implement a single enterprise-grade, high-availability cluster solution, at one-quarter of the cost of legacy HA cluster technologies.

With its storage needs growing, Landair’s technology department was experiencing support headaches and hardware management difficulties caused by islands of legacy direct-attached-storage (DAS) systems. Faced with the high cost of expanding its storage infrastructure, the company’s IT management team decided to research alternative storage technologies.

Ultimately, Landair selected a Pogo StorageDirector HA solution. The StorageDirector solution is an integrated storage area network (SAN), meaning Landair’s infrastructure gets enterprise-grade high-availability, cost-effective scalability, and ease of management, all at a reasonable price-point. Making the switch to an Open Storage solution meant that Landair’s IT department was able to maintain around-the-clock transportation services, while dramatically lowering their storage acquisition costs.

“We're growing. With that comes volumes of data, a trend that is not going to slow down. We needed a storage solution that met our requirements for flexibility and scalability. Pogo and Nexenta™ provided just that, all on a reasonable budget,” said Chris Dolese, IT Director of Landair.

“Selecting an Open Storage solution was the right choice for Landair. The StorageDirector solution meets Landair’s rapidly-growing storage needs, without sacrificing enterprise features,” said Erik Logan, CEO of Pogo Linux. “Their deployment is a great example of how ZFS can change the storage economics for organizations that want to get the most from their IT budgets. The Pogo-Nexenta StorageDirector integrated solution enabled Landair to deploy a scalable HA cluster solution while at the same time reducing costs and storage administration.”
