DTP and Hewlett Packard Enterprise help Trinity House keep the lights on

“Protect your digital enterprise” is one of management’s key responsibilities, but what if your company’s responsibility was “protect the country?” Trinity House officially describes itself as “a charity dedicated to safeguarding shipping and seafarers, providing education, support, and welfare to the seafaring community with a statutory duty as a General Lighthouse Authority to deliver reliable, efficient, and cost-effective aids to navigation service for the benefit and safety of all mariners.”

A sound proposal for an infrastructure upgrade

Trinity House recently upgraded its storage infrastructure with a complete HPE technology refresh, working with DTP Group to migrate to HPE 3PAR across three sites and install a new backup storage solution using HPE StoreOnce and Veeam. DTP won with the highest score on Trinity House’s scoring matrix, which included the quality of the tender proposal, quality of the proposed solution, price, case studies, and references from organizations with similar projects. The project became DTP’s first engagement with Trinity House.

another happy customer

Trinity House is now equipped with three HPE 3PAR solutions, two HPE StoreOnce devices, HPE blade infrastructure, fiber channel switches, and a tape autoloader connected to an HPE backup server.

“Our overall experience with DTP and HPE was very positive,” Gavin Race, Trinity House Network Engineer said. “Straightaway, we’ve noticed performance improvements. It’s just been one of those projects that we’ve been really pleased with. And the guys who are helping us implement the project have been really good to work with. As long as the service continues as well as it has, then certainly we are keen to continue working with both DTP and HPE.”
