Surface Mount Technology (SMT)

Empowers its business growth with low TCO and guarantees performance with dynamically-scaling NetApp HCI.

Growing businesses face the constant challenge of expanding their infrastructure to handle increasingly-mixed workloads while still maintaining predictable performance and controllable costs. When SMT planned to upgrade its email and domain systems to meet new business demands, it decided to free itself from its traditional three-tier architecture and move to a hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) that consolidates all workloads into a super powerhouse for better efficiency and simplified management. After evaluating many HCI solutions, SMT came to the conclusion that NetApp’s HCI node-based shared-nothing architecture is one-of-a-kind, providing unsurpassed, pay-as-you-grow scalability to meet its long-term business development.

We found the NetApp HCI ranked at the top of the list in every area we reviewed. There were so many reasons we chose NetApp.
