EMC mum on storage problems

'Four failures in three months'

Major storage problems associated with the sale of Carter Holt Harvey’s tissue business have apparently been resolved.

In May, CHH sold the business to Svenska Cellulosa Aktiebolaget. Data had to be separated out and $1 million was spent on EMC storage technology to achieve this.

Computerworld has been told that within the first three months the storage failed four times, twice requiring disaster recovery.

The storage was housed with Oxygen, the spin-off IT business from CHH.

EMC has an all-encompassing, non-disclosure clause in its contracts, so no one will comment. However, Computerworld understands the problem was earlier this year.
