Document management secured by an HA cluster with Open-E - Starline Computer: Storage und Server Lösungen von erfahrenen Experten

Starline accelerates document management with Open-E in HA cluster

The high volume of documents required a system update at the law office Kapellmann und Partner

Faster workflow in the office

HA cluster with 20 TB from Open-E for document management

Lawyers in the construction and real estate sectors are confronted daily with important contracts, standards and legal texts by mail or e-mail, which must be stored and also protected. In order to get this flood of data under control, the lawyers approached the Enterprise Storage Solutions team and were finally completely satisfied.

  • Redundant and high-performance storage system NASdeluxe NDL-4116R/L
  • Active-Active iSCSI cluster with synchronous mirroring and automatic failover
  • Archiving via NEC-T09 LTO autoloader
  • Fast 10 Gbps Ethernet connection

The internationally active law firm Kapellmann und Partner Rechtsanwälte mbB has been one of the leading law firms in Germany for years. It was and is known for its high level of specialisation and scientific excellence in the construction and real estate sector. The quality standards in consulting and the constant growth of the law firm required an appropriate IT infrastructure.

The law firm therefore requested offers for a new storage system from Starline. A new network storage for mail archiving and document management system (DMS) was to be integrated into the existing IT infrastructure. The law firm also needed a redundant and high-performance storage system with 20 TB of storage space. Also, to have enough storage space available in the future.

A solution for document management: HA cluster with Open-E

Kapellmann und Partner Rechtsanwälte mbB found the right partner for the project in Starline Computer GmbH. Their business unit “Enterprise Storage Solutions” has a dedicated team with product know-how and many years of experience.

After consulting sessions, the team finally found the optimal solution. It consisted of two NASdeluxe systems on Open-E basis, each with 20 TB storage space and 10 Gbps Ethernet interface. This means that an active-active iSCSI cluster with synchronous mirroring and automatic failover has been established.

„The Starline system is reliable and was implemented in a relatively short time. The quality fully meets our high expectations.”
Walter Mühlenbruch, Kapellmann and Partner

Easy integration of the system

The storage system was finally delivered to the law firm in August 2016. The experts there integrated it quickly and easily into the existing IT environment. 

With the NASdeluxe Active-Active-Cluster the sequential read and write performance could even be increased by 100 percent.

„A fast and reliable system from Starline at a good price.”
Walter Mühlenbruch, Kapellmann and Partner
