ISTANBUL, Turkey – Hewlett Packard Enterprise (NYSE: HPE) today announced that the Istanbul Water and Sewerage Administration (İSKİ) replaced its existing server and storage systems with an infrastructure as a service offering through HPE GreenLake. HPE GreenLake for Private Cloud Business Edition, which provides disaggregated hyperconverged infrastructure (dHCI), will ensure the stability of crucial services such as wastewater management and distribution of drinking water to citizens and businesses through a network totaling almost 20,000 kilometers.
“Issues with our IT infrastructure could cause profound consequences to millions of households and businesses around the city. To prevent such problems, we made the decision to strengthen our IT backbone with HPE GreenLake hybrid cloud services,” said Tayfun İşbilen, CIO, İSKİ. “It has provided us with guaranteed data availability and the flexibility to scale on demand and adjust the performance of our technology to meet the needs of our citizens. Our IT infrastructure is now simpler, easier to control, and comes with a lower total cost of operation.”
İSKİ needed additional computing power when introducing new services, such as a mobile app and a billing system. Simultaneously, the organization’s storage capacity was nearing its limit, and required an upgrade to avoid unplanned downtime. Furthermore, to ensure service continuity in the event of system failures or cyber-attacks, a new disaster recovery site was deployed at an external data center.
As part of the transformation, İSKİ selected HPE GreenLake for Private Cloud Business Edition to consolidate thirty-three file servers and storage systems at remote sites. With HPE InfoSight’s advanced artificial intelligence for IT operations (AIOps) to predict and prevent problems, İSKİ improved their application performance and now has a resilient always-on system with 99.9999% of availability guarantee. The new HPE GreenLake solution runs İSKİ’s workloads such as water management SCADA systems, billing, mobile application, and various Microsoft solutions including Active Directory, Exchange and others.
“Infrastructure of critical importance, such as water supply, demands uncompromising levels of security and availability. We were able to provide these to İSKİ through the HPE GreenLake for Private Cloud Business Edition,” said Gungor Kaymak, Managing Director, East-South Cluster, HPE. “This solution not only offers 99.9999% availability but also scales on demand easily, accommodating the rising need for new workloads and applications as the city’s population grows.”
