TUI Cruises’ Fleet Stays on Course with DataCore’s Software-Defined Storage


Enjoys Failsafe Travel with SANsymphony

READING, UK. and Unterfoehring, Germany, June 19, 2017DataCore Software, a leading provider of software-defined storage, today announced that its software-defined storage platform, SANsymphony™, has been implemented on the cruise ship fleet of TUI Cruises, a joint venture between German TUI AG and Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd., the world’s second-largest cruise company. The SANsymphony™ storage platform delivers highly-available and high-performance storage capacity for VMware, Microsoft SQL Server and Microsoft Exchange.

“DataCore’s scalability in terms of capacity, performance and functionality gives us the flexibility we need to respond to future challenges, whether it is on the single ships or for the entire fleet. In addition, SANsymphony has demonstrated total reliability. We plan to keep expanding our ‘Mein Schiff’ fleet, and we will continue to rely on BSH IT Solutions and SANsymphony to sail alongside,” said Matthias Fahrner, director IT Competence Centre & Strategy at TUI Cruises.

TUI Cruises offers exclusive routes along the Mediterranean coasts, Canary Islands, the Caribbean and Central America, the Baltic Sea, the Nordic region, Great Britain and Iceland. Other travel areas include the Arabian Gulf, Asia, and North America, departing from New York. The company started with the acquisition of “Mein Schiff 1” in 2009 and “Mein Schiff 6” has just been launched. Two more new ships are already planned and are manufactured until 2019 at the Meyer Turku shipyard in Finland.

The IT infrastructure for the first five members of the fleet were designed on land by DataCore IT service partner BSH IT Solutions who implemented SANsymphony on board within extremely narrow time frames to fit the final implementation schedule when the ship docks after completion of sea trials, managing the platform remotely via its data centres in Germany.

The entire IT infrastructure on the ships is designed redundantly. Systems are installed in separate fire and water zones, on different decks, and in the data centres located at the bow and stern. DataCore SANsymphony synchronously mirrors data, regardless of the manufacturer, model or technology of the connected storage hardware (disk or SSD), in order to ensure a high level of availability for systems on the ships. While Mein Schiff 2 used an existing HP Bladecenter for the DataCore nodes, Mein Schiff 3 was equipped with a 10GB fibre channel infrastructure, new HP Proliant and HP disk shelf with SAS disk capacity of 20TB for each side. Mein Schiff 4 uses Dell PowerEdge and PowerVault extension for the DataCore nodes. New and existing storage hardware can be easily integrated, and its lifespan is extended.

If a section of a data centre fails, the other side automatically takes over (transparent auto failover) and resyncs the system when it is restarted (auto failback). The storage environment of Mein Schiff 5 supports four VMware ESXi hosts as well as two Veeam backup servers to back up the 50 virtual machines. Separately from the navigation infrastructure, these run all of the systems needed for the cruise, tourism and administrative operations. In particular, Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SQL Server, file services and Active Directory play an important role.

“SANsymphony offers an outstanding price-performance ratio. The numerous integrated technologies helped us successfully migrate the data centers; they solve our current storage challenges and give us a high level of flexibility and investment security for the future,” said Matthias Fahrner.

Benefits at a glance:

  • High level of availability thanks to synchronous mirroring
  • Transparent failover
  • Scalable in terms of capacity, output and performance
  • Easy to use on site, with worldwide remote management by the partner
