In 2016, a company-wide file server was introduced by Softbank (SB C&S) to enable employees to share essential business data. This system was completely revamped in April 2020 using NetApp® AFF all-flash arrays.
Softbank Commerce & Service Corp's aim was to create a user-friendly data-sharing platform to help improve employees’ productivity. By seamlessly linking on-premises and public cloud storage, the company’s data fabric allows data to be used in innovative ways.
This solution enables us to operate in a rational way, with frequently used data in the flash area so it can be accessed quickly, and infrequently used data protected in the public cloud to keep costs down.
