” This new data centre not only gives Esterline the possibility to store data in a secure manner, its scalability is also a major advantage. We now profit from a state-of-the art facility.” Jan Bruggeman, Director ICT EsterlineDownload the full case study
Esterline originates from the U.S. but is active on a global scale, with offices and productions sites in the U.S., Europe – including Belgium –, China, India, Singapore, Israel, Morocco, etc. Its Belgian branch is located in Kortrijk.
The company’s core business can be summarized in three segments: Avionics & Controls, Sensors & Systems and Advanced Materials. All three intended for the commercial and military aviation industry, the defense sector and some related markets.
The biggest challenge posed by this carveout project was the implementation of a new infrastructure for the data centre. This had to be carried out in a challenging environment with limited space and a strict deadline. Besides, the data centre had to be scalable for the future.
