Inteva To Standardize On Nasuni Unified Storage In Locations Spanning 18 Countries And Four Continents

NATICK, Mass., Feb. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Nasuni ®, a provider of enterprise storage to large, distributed organizations, today announced that Inteva Products will deploy Nasuni to address the challenges associated with controlling, storing and accessing data across geographic boundaries.  Nasuni's storage-infrastructure-as-a-service solution uses an on-site appliance that integrates public cloud storage as a key component.  It will be the primary storage solution in manufacturing plants, engineering, finance, sales, and marketing offices. These locations are distributed across 18 countries on four continents.

Inteva was founded in 2008, when private investors bought Delphi's global interiors and closures businesses. Inteva more than doubled to more than 40 locations in 2011 with the acquisition of ArvinMeritor's Body Systems group.

Due to the rapid growth, Dennis Hodges, Inteva's CIO, faced a daunting task. Inteva's IT systems were outdated and needed to be upgraded, but he also needed to keep IT strategic investment at less than 1 percent of revenue. The storage infrastructure represented one of his biggest challenges. For example, engineering teams in Germany and India needed to access large CAD files for their work, but transferring files between the two offices could take six hours. In addition, the backup process at each site was expensive and ineffective.

"I knew there had to be a better way to update the storage infrastructure than buying small SANs and putting them on site," Hodges said. "When I heard about Nasuni and what the company did, I knew it was right up our alley."

Given his capital limitations, Hodges works to take care of as many of his infrastructure needs through the operating budget as possible, so he was attracted to Nasuni's terabyte per year subscription service, in which he pays only for usable storage. With direct access to the data in every office, Engineers would finally have fast, local access to the most recent version of CAD files, eliminating the need to wait hours for downloads to complete. Backups are built-in with Nasuni, which would eliminate a massive operational headache, and all locations could be managed centrally, which would free up local IT personnel to focus on more strategic initiatives.
