When even a single photograph can take up a dozen MBs, then the storage capacity required for 10 million photographs is enormous. Solvinity handles the hosting and management of the ANP Image Bank Environment, a Hybrid Cloud solution using Amazon S3, which covers a total of seven different ANP photographic websites.
Hybrid Cloud solution
Thanks to Solvinity, the ANP Image Bank now has a genuine, unique, hybrid cloud solution that is both efficient and low-cost. Solvinity combines the hosting services with the storage services of Amazon, and acts as a ‘broker’ for ANP so that ANP gets the lowest possible storage price. The guaranteed availability is 99.5%. For the server infrastructure, Solvinity uses Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS). This datacenter platform integrates server, network, storage, and virtualisation capacity in a single energyefficient system. The virtual servers are based on VMware vSphere, so that in combination with UCS it is possible to create a complete virtual datacenter across the two datacenters of Solvinity. This has the advantage of improved availability, excellent scalability, and thus optimal flexibility.
