LeaseWeb Accelerates Infrastructure Delivery with NetApp Flash

With NetApp systems in place, LeaseWeb helps customers move to the cloud with confidence

“LeaseWeb can offer a level of service that often only large enterprises can afford to deploy. With our current public cloud offering built on NetApp, we can take the extra step that we need to satisfy the customer’s needs,” said Robert van der Meulen, cloud manager at LeaseWeb. “The continuous operation, stability, and great performance that our current infrastructure offers is a winning combination.”

LeaseWeb, one of the world’s largest hosting brands, offers a wide variety of cloud hosting solutions, bare metal servers, CDN services, and more. The company operates with the customer at the heart of its operations.

As part of its public cloud strategy, LeaseWeb wanted to accelerate infrastructure delivery to enable customers to place their mission-critical workloads in the cloud. LeaseWeb needed an enterprise-class solution offering low latency, reliability, constant throughput, zero downtime, and minimal administrative overhead. The company ultimately chose NetApp (NASDAQ: NTAP) to increase uptime, accelerate its services delivery, and maximize overall customer excellence and satisfaction.

LeaseWeb implemented NetApp® All Flash FAS (AFF) systems globally, running on NetApp ONTAP® data management software. By using solid-state disks and stepping away from traditional hard disk drives, LeaseWeb gained performance efficiency and submillisecond latency. Servers now work at higher efficiency, allowing CPUs to work to their full potential. In addition, storage upgrades can now be performed without downtime and data can be moved between nodes without disruption.

With NetApp, LeaseWeb has also been able to:

  • Free up resources to work on innovation rather than on data center administration.
  • Increase the responsiveness and reliability of applications.
  • Perform maintenance without disruption.
  • Eliminate storage bottlenecks for consistent high performance.
  • Offer scalability as an option to scaling to demand.
