Datacenter Upgrade!

Ember IT has installed a new EMC Storage Area Network (SAN) in our Reading PA datacenter.  The new EMC has mixed storage consisting of NLSAS, 15K SAS and FLASH storage.  Because EMC owns VMware (the software that runs the Ember IT datacenter) integration between these technologies is second to none.

This upgrade was performed on a Wednesday afternoon and caused no downtime for customers.  Customer servers will be migrated to the new storage in the coming weeks.  With EMC and VMware, Ember is able to perform these upgrades and even the migrations with zero customer downtime.

All Ember IT customers will be able to utilize this new, faster storage system at no additional cost.  The new storage increased Ember’s overall storage capacity by 10 fold.

I've sought to change the perception among business owners that IT is simply another line-item, simply an additional cost of business. In actuality, technology has the power to truly advance businesses to the next level. Helping to show that to our clients is one of the highlights of my job."
