Warburtons has teamed up with NetApp to help manage and store data from its 14 bakeries, producing over a million products a day. As the business has expanded, the organisation of the data has been of critical importance and Warburtons needed an efficient, secure and easy way to manage it. NetApp specialises in providing solutions for the storage, delivery, and management of network data and content.

"Warburtons is seeing double-digit growth and, for a number of years, we have been spreading geographically," explained Martin Ogden, infrastructure manager at Warburtons. The company needed a robust data storage system, with data copied in real-time to a disaster recovery facility. And the IT upgrades had to be made without disrupting its 24/7/365 operations.

The final upgrade was completed with zero system downtime, added Ogden.
