Tata Sky, a broadcast satellite television provider in India, has selected a new IBM hybrid storage system to help it better serve its 30 million customers.
“As the fastest growing, direct-to-home, digital television satellite service provider in India, Tata Sky simply cannot operate without mission-critical storage that provides the utmost business continuity and operational efficiency in both our primary and disaster recovery sites,” said N. Ravishanker, CIO of Tata Sky. The technology deployed at Tata Sky relies on mitigating risk of data loss and at the same time, accessing data swiftly. “With IBM DS8000 hybrid flash storage, our response time has significantly improved and queries now return in less than one second, bringing higher efficiencies.”
The company is using IBM DS8000 systems as its primary storage for all critical workloads, including CRM, billing and disaster recovery.
