Italy's largest e-mail service enables nonstop, fast access to data with NetApp All Flash FAS

As Italy's market leader in digital advertising and Internet services, Italiaonline is on a mission to help large and small Italian companies drive growth through digital transformation. The company's e-mail service is the largest in Italy, with 10 million daily active accounts and 3 billion messages delivered each month. To maintain its leadership position in a fiercely competitive industry, Italiaonline must provide fast, reliable service to customers.

NetApp storage provides a highly available, highly scalable data management foundation for nearly 4PB of e-mail messages and attachments. With NetApp ONTAP® software, Italiaonline can provide nonstop data availability—even during upgrades and maintenance.

Italiaonline chose NetApp All Flash FAS to accelerate its e-mail metadata search engine. The company can now give users faster access to their e-mail messages across mobile devices and traditional web services.

Resilience is the most important feature in our infrastructure. ONTAP gives us the opportunity to do maintenance during business hours without disrupting service.
