Since 1984, Ceramiche Mariner (www.cermariner.it) has been a point of reference in the Emilian ceramic district. The rapid growth in revenues over the years has led the company to change its business, passing since 2001 from a purely commercial company to a production company. From 2016 to 2019, with an investment of 55 million euros, Mariner built production plants for 30 thousand square meters in Castellarano, in the province of Reggio Emilia, creating numerous jobs with an annual production capacity of 5,400,000 square meters of porcelain stoneware tiles for floors and walls.
With the change of its business model, Ceramiche Mariner has begun to produce large amounts of data to be stored and processed, to ensure the optimal functioning of the production process.
The company needed a high-performance computing infrastructure that would guarantee reliability and above all keep the production process always active 24 hours a day, without any downside risk and with a reliable and safe backup and disaster recovery system.
This is why it offered E4 VSTONE® Converged Virtualization solution.
E4 has also provided a pre-sales consultancy service and constant support, thanks to the Partner Computers Technologies, guaranteeing the customer constant system operation and continuous system support.
