- Atea and HPE teamed up to design the best storage solution to help provide performance and stability for Kartverket’s mapping technology
Atea, HPE and Kartverket, The Norwegian Mapping Authority
The Story: Kartverket is an organization spearheading the efforts to digitally map Norway. Every week their databases are updated with thousands of new objects including changed roads, rivers and new cabins, which are all saved on 1200 servers hosting around 10PB of data. Kartverket has taken on the largest land survey in Norwegian history, where all parts of the country are laser-scanned and placed into a new digital map. Due to the volume of fresh data from the merges of municipalities and new land boarders in this project, Kartverket required a significant increase in their data storage capacity.
The Solution: Through the ongoing successful relationship with Atea and HPE, Kartverket consolidated several legacy systems in anticipation for the expected workload growth. Atea and HPE designed and delivered HPE 3PAR 8440 storage systems with Installation and Support Services.
The Impact: Together, Atea storage specialists and HPE solution sales teams designed the best storage solution for Kartverket that leveraged innovative storage technology to deliver the performance and stability required to power this mapping technology. In addition, Kartverket implemented HPE 3PAR to support storage for positioning services, digital map creation, land registry processes and property information.
Further strengthening the technology based on Adoptive Optimization, the storage capacity was increased by 1.1PB x 2. As a result of the increased availability of the additional storage capacity, Kartverket was able to work quicker and run through processes faster. Through the consolidation of their existing storage systems, they have also seen vast improvements like simplified management, reduced footprints, and better Adaptive Optimization.
