Staying informed means sharing data

Mediengruppe Pressedruck was one of Germany’s first integrated media companies. But its heart is in print and online news. 

Competition and cost pressures are immense in the daily newspaper business. An economically successful future depends on high-quality content, loyal customers, and ongoing digital transformation. To meet strategic and operational requirements, Mediengruppe Pressedruck employs a cloud-based IT infrastructure. From journalistic investigation to timely delivery, NetApp serves as a hub for newspaper data.

Nobody is interested in the newspaper of yesterday. NetApp storage delivers data quickly and reliably.

Günter Aue, Head of IT Infrastructure, Mediengruppe Pressedruck

A massive daily undertaking

More than 450 virtual servers, around 1,500 PC workplaces for internal and external users, and the online news offering are running at high performance on NetApp all-flash systems in NAS mode for Linux and Windows environments. An FC SAN was eliminated to simplify the infrastructure.

A NetApp AFF A300 MetroCluster IP provides business  continuity across two data centers. It stores only primary data. Another two all-flash systems serve as primary and archive storage and as secondary storage on demand.
