McDATA said its Enterprise Operating System (E/OS)(TM) is at the core of the open storage area network (SAN) solution that enables Kuoni, one of the world’s largest travel operators, to extend the reach of its SAN across multiple physical locations while managing it from a centralized location. McDATA’s E/OS reportedly allows Kuoni to smoothly consolidate its two SAN locations without disruption, keeping all necessary data — including customer information, bookings, flight schedules and travel documents — fully accessible to Kuoni’s 400 travel agencies world-wide.
“McDATA’s software technology provides us with the highest possible flexibility,” said Sergio Caduff, director of IT operations at Kuoni. “Our business is our data. McDATA’s software allows us to manage our SAN from multiple data centers, while allowing business operations to run flawlessly and continuously.”
