Repsol Sinopec

In an industry that has experienced turbulent changes to prices, oil and gas producer Repsol Sinopec Resources UK needed a way to upgrade its storage platform whilst operating within tight cost constraints and maintaining operational efficiency and data security. By turning to NetApp and the storage vendor’s new copy-free transition methodology, the company achieved its aims at a fraction of the cost and time associated with traditional upgrade methods, while gaining a robust platform that readies it for a hybrid cloud storage future.

Using the brand-new copy-free transition process to achieve both the hardware refresh and upgrade to ONTAP with minimal business disruption was the perfect option. It reduced risk, slashed migration time, and cut costs and was something we were able to fully justify.
