Thai Ruam Toon Warehouse streamlines their data management with QNAP Turbo NAS TS-879U-RP
"QNAP Turbo NAS makes outstanding contributions to our daily operation, especially during peak season."- Thai Ruam Toon Warehouse
Thai Ruam Toon Warehouse Co., Ltd was founded in 1976 to provide warehouse and loading/unloading facilities for ocean going vessels. Part of the Thai Roong Ruang Group, a leading sugar manufacturer and exporter in Thailand, Thai Ruam Toon Warehouse plays an important role in international logistics. Now it has three large-scale warehouses in Thailand. These are not just everyday 'normal' warehouses, Thai Ruam Toon Warehouse has received ISO 9001:2000 Certificates from both the SGS and UKAS and is actively involved in social responsibility programs, including noise control, sediment discharge, water pollution control and road traffic safety.
Thai Ruam Toon Warehouse previously used a non-QNAP branded NAS solution to manage daily file storage and file sharing. However, with its increased use of data, the company needed to upgrade the system to offer larger storage capacity. During the hardware and storage upgrade and configuration process, the company identified a lack of technical knowledge and support from the incumbent NAS vendor. What made Thai Ruam Toon Warehouse particularly frustrated was the fact that the NAS vendor chose to ignore its requests for support.
This dissatisfaction of the service caused Thai Ruam Toon Warehouse to look for a new NAS vendor. After detailed research on the Internet and a thorough comparison of all the options the company decided to go with a QNAP Turbo NAS based on its great user and press reviews. The company deployed a QNAP TS-879U-RP, which holds up to 8 hard drives, and serves as both IP-SAN (iSCSI) and NAS. The TS-879U-RP can be easily utilized for business applications including as a backup center, as well as for disaster recovery, file sharing, virtualization, and storage for video editing.
Thai Ruam Toon Warehouse wanted ultra-high performance combined with simple configuration and security mechanisms. The TS-879U-RP supports network failover and load balancing to assure stability. Most of all, the TS-879U-RP provides excellent expandability for hardware and software upgrades which provides great flexibility. Following installation of the QNAP TS-879U-RP, Thai Ruam Toon Warehouse has streamlined their system administration and maintenance operations, cutting costs by more than 50%.
