World’s Leading Car Manufacturer Adopts Infortrend’s Storage for Enterprise Data Backup

“Infortrend storage dramatically improved file access performance and reduced server backup time to help workers of the famous car manufacturing company increase productivity output and, hence, gain higher profits,” said Kelvin Chuah, Sales Director of IO Datamovers.

World’s leading automaker aimed to modernize IT infrastructure by replacing old storage systems used for enterprise data storage and backup/archiving. They employed IO Datamovers as a System Integrator to find a suitable solution able to provide a smooth access to enterprise data, quick backup, and tight data protection.


  • IT Department was constantly receiving complaints that the existing File Server didn’t provide for employees fast enough file access (both read and write), especially to large files during peak hours.
  • Backup process took long hours and overlapped with work hours, which negatively affected overall productive performance of the company.
  • Data protection functionality of the existing outdated storage was insufficient to ensure non-stop data protection and integrity of valuable enterprise data.


For the regional office and the factory, SI deployed two systems of enterprise unified SAN/NAS EonStor GS 1000 loaded with 20 x 4TB, 7.2k rpm HDD (80 TB total). The solution provided ease of management with stable performance. IT Manager doesn’t receive any more complaints from employees: GS solved the main issue of slow access to files and greatly improved performance of server’s full backup to within minutes, whereas previous storage required overnight backup or even longer, sometimes overlapping with production hours. The File Server is accessed by around 120 users and is shared across all departments, including Sales, Marketing, Finance, Operation, Logistics, and their Factory production site. At least 50% faster file access greatly contributes to improving user productivity. For Marketing team, it helps with meeting deadlines in creating advertisement materials, for Drawing and Design professionals — with sharing files with related users on production site/office, while making sure company’s ‘know-how’ is protected with properly structured user authentication and file access rights.

Why Infortrend

  • Better performance of the unified SAN/NAS storage GS 1000 for backup/archiving application compared to competitors’ solutions.
  • User-friendly GUI management.
