Mondriaan for Mental Health

Leading mental health institute uses EMC for disaster recovery and data storage reliability

It's been a while since I've posted my last article. Everyone will be familiar with the term 'busy, busy, very busy'. Believe me when I say, I was very busy. Not only with work, thank god! In addition, I had the pleasure to plan a nice vacation to Egypt. And now I'm back again I packed my suitcase for a trip to Las Vegas USA. Between those two I have some little time publish this article.

Most of you know I'm responsible for a large high-end (VMware) virtualization and (EMC) storage infrastructure for a mental health care organisation in the South of The Netherlands. I work with a great team and I am more than proud to what we have achieved so far/up to now/till today!

Thanks to great design, implementation and maintenance of this environment, we keep a very high uptime of our IT services. We are very flexible with our combination of VMware and EMC because of there reputation for proven and reliable IT infrastructure knowledge.To ensure that this doesn't looks like an EMC sales talk :) we go to the beginning of the story, because I truly believe in what I say.

I am always in for a great story and so is EMC. A couple of months ago I received a call from Daniel Schmutz, Senior Manager, Studio E Customer Reference Team. I can't remember what triggert it. He asked me if we could build a customer case study. A resounding yes from my side was al what was necessary to start this Mondriaan EMC case study. For those not aware of Studio E, it's not just a one-way reference program. Studio E incorporates a host of programs and technologies that put it at the top of the list of customer reference communities in any industry. Participants get to take advantage such as:

  1. Achievements
  2. Referrals
  3. Newsletter
  4. Events
  5. Networking

I had a nice interview with one of the writers EMC hires. After I told my story the preparations for a great document could begin.It seems a lot like a sales story afterwards. But what the hell, it is what it is, a good story!I think mondriaan agrees. Finally, it is free advertising for them too.
