To keep guests happy and relaxed, the applications and IT services that support resort properties need to be up and running 24/7. At Cambrils Park Resort on the Mediterranean coast, NetApp MetroCluster is never on vacation, providing uninterrupted service across data centers.
Cambrils Park Resort is a holiday complex on the Catalan coast that opened its doors 25 years ago with the aim of becoming a destination for families to enjoy their summer. As part of the Blasi Group, it is interconnected and shares data center resources with two other companies, Camping & Resort Sangulí Salou and Futbol Salou Sport Center.
All the services the companies offer are based on a shared IT infrastructure, so virtualization and storage infrastructure have to guarantee total availability at all times to keep guests happy. To meet this challenge, the company has decided to entrust ICOT as an integrator for the implementation of a NetApp MetroCluster solution.
All the services offered to users in the resort itself or via the internet are based on our own infrastructure, so virtualization and storage have to guarantee availability at all times.
Salvador Gavarró, CIO, Cambrils Park Resort
The project, carried out by IT services provider ICOT, aimed to improve the performance of the current storage systems and, above all, to guarantee the availability of the systems for the business applications. Among the results obtained, the system recovery time is particularly noteworthy. In the past, if the data center went down, it took between 4 and 5 hours to restore the service. Now this process is instantaneous.
The MetroCluster solution chosen allows Cambrils Park to have two data centers separated by more than 1.5 km. The company’s data is replicated synchronously between the two centers, so that the resort can lose one of them without affecting the availability of the services.
Reduced site restoration from 5 hours previously to virtually instantaneous today.
