Lundin moves to ProAct cloud

300 terabyte upstream dataset migrates to ‘hybrid’ in-house cloud.

Kista, Sweden-based ProAct, through its Norwegian unit, is to provide cloud-based data storage services to independent oil and gas company Lundin. With operatorship of the Brynhild and Edvard Grieg fields as well as a share in the giant Johan Sverdrup discovery, Lundin is experiencing significant growth.

Lundin CIO Martin Leslie said, ‘In 2011 we had 90 terabytes of data. This is set to increase to 320 TB in 2013. As our current NetApp solution is running out of capacity, we went to tender and ProAct was selected. ProAct has served as a strategic advisor and has references with small and larger clients both nationally and internationally.’

ProAct will deploy a hybrid cloud model where its equipment will be located in Lundin’s environment and mirrored to a redundant location. Following a ‘thorough investigation’ Lundin opted to stay with a NetApp platform (ProAct is a NetApp partner).
