Featured Case Study

Global pharmaceutical company maintains non-interrupted access to ECS with Kemp


Dell's ECS customer is a leading pharmaceutical company with a global research organization. They need to store large amounts of data indefinitely and with an automatic user enabled archive which is why they opted for Dell’s ECS solution. Dell requires a load balancing solution to be deployed in conjunction with ECS. Alternative storage and load balancing combinations did not offer the same value, especially for high volume business, as Kemp and Dell EMC ECS. Kemp load balancing offers a more practical option than was available previously and was implemented in the customer's ECS solution. Moreover, Kemp’s solution is validated and optimized by Dell EMC.
