Ipca selects NetApp to secure its critical medical data

Ipca, an integrated Indian pharmaceutical company manufacturing over 350 formulations and 80 APIs for various therapeutic segments, has chosen NetApp to secure some of its most critical data. The company has 14 manufacturing facilities across multiple cities in India.

Each of Ipca’s manufacturing units generates critical data, which require to be quickly accessed by multiple departments for multiple analyses. Ipca selected NetApp’s FAS2500 Series for its benefit as unified architecture running Data ONTAP, NetApp’s data management platform that spans flash, disk and cloud resources.

According to the company, the unified FAS Series for SAN and NAS Gateways architecture have resolved Ipca’s storage requirement by having a single box for all types of workloads. NetApp’s SnapMirror was used to perform deduplication and compression on the data to drive down bandwidth usage. NetApp’s 99.99% RAS (Reliability, Availability, and Serviceability) commitment has added more value and lowered TCO.

With NetApp, Ipca has brought down its overall storage requirement by approximately 40 percent, and reduced bandwidth requirements by 45 percent.

“Our challenge was to ensure data sovereignty over 14 physical locations to the central repository. Also all data transfer between the central repository and 14 locations was a very costly affair in terms of bandwidth.  NetApp provided us with a very powerful replication mechanism which has lowered overall bandwidth consumption with the solutions’ deduplication and compression feature. We are extremely pleased with our partnership with NetApp and we are exploring setting up a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure at each of our locations with NetApp,” said Ashok Nayak, General Manager - IT, Ipca.
