LG consolidates IT infrastructure

Syneto has consolidated the IT infrastructure of LG Electronics Italia, part of worldwide brand and leading provider of flat panel TVs, mobile devices, air conditioners, washing machines and refrigerators LG Electronics.

The IT deployment, consisting of a HYPER Series 3100 all-in-one hyperconverged platform with built-in Disaster Recovery (DR) capabilities, has reduced admin time by five hours per week from 21 hours, and lowered recovery time objective (RTO) from 21 hours to just under 15 minutes.
Gianni Velardi, Senior IT Manager at LG Electronics Italy, and his team were looking for an affordable solution that would provide ease of use as well as disaster recovery capabilities. The team needed to have control of and insight into applications, files and video surveillance data. After researching the market, Velardi’s team was underwhelmed with the available products, and found that none satisfied all of their criteria, also including a user-friendly and easy to manage built-in disaster recovery function, complete 24/7 data protection and the lowest possible DR RTO possible.
After identifying Syneto’s HYPER Series 3100 all-in-one array, LG Electronics Italy approached Syneto to find out more about the company and its hyperconverged technology. It found that the HYPER Series 3100 met its strict criteria, being able to host all applications and store all the company’s files simultaneously at a highly competitive price. Furthermore, while LG Electronics Italy’s previous IT infrastructure, composed of three obsolete traditional servers without DR capabilities, was unable to generate detailed reports, Syneto’s system offered a user-friendly integrated analytics feature, which the team found highly appealing.
“Syneto’s hyperconverged platform has helped cut the time we spend managing our IT infrastructure by five hours a week while providing complete data protection with granular data recovery policies. An RTO of 15 minutes is now also possible, and it is a fantastic improvement, given that our previous RTO was over 21 hours,” said Gianni Velardi, Senior IT Manager at LG Electronics Italy.
Since the Syneto deployment, the LG Electronics Italy IT team has been able to optimise its infrastructure by carrying out detailed performance analysis to determine how additional workloads would impact performance. The team now spends far less time on IT administration, and instead is able to focus on innovating and delivering value to the business.
“LG Electronics Italy, like many companies of different sizes, was looking for an all-in-one hyperconverged solution with built-in and highly reliable disaster recovery capabilities at an affordable price. Added to that, the ease of use we are able to offer our ROBO and SMB customers is unmatched in the storage market today.” said Vadim Comanescu, CEO Syneto.
