equipped to face
the future with IT
Välinge Innovation is the R&D and IP firm which created the click flooring concept that requires no glue, and has developed a wide range of patented solutions in the field of flooring and furniture technology all over the world.
When Välinge Innovation needed a new IT provider with the ability to meet its technology needs in relation to a virtualisation solution, it got in touch with Nordlo, in Malmö. It is important for Välinge Innovation that the new solution is scalable, to enable future expansion.
”Nordlo has provided us with a virtualisation solution that satisfies our high standards on performance and security specifications. We like that the solution is scalable, so we can easily expand in the future.”
Working in tandem with Arrow ECS, Nordlo has developed a redundant virtualisation solution which meets the needs and specifications required by Välinge Innovation. A 2-node SimpliVity cluster was implemented, creating a scalable solution which will make it easier for Välinge Innovation to grow geographically in the future.
At the same time, discussions were held on the network infrastructure for its factory and industrial systems. Välinge Innovation has a high degree of automation and high-granularity monitoring, which makes the network a critical component for which high availability and low lag time are essential. The specifications include monitoring the traffic that flows through the network in relation to malicious code, viruses and malware. This is reinforced by protection for OT networks, a type of network used by the control and regulation systems in the factory.
For this purpose, Nordlo developed a solution together with Fortinet which combines a firewall cluster with full UTM functionality, Industrial Security Services and a complete switch solution. This has led to an improvement in the security as well as the availability of Välinge Innovation’s network.
“Välinge Innovation is an expansive company growing at a rapid pace, which has given rise to an exciting, intriguing partnership. It is extremely technology driven and places high demands on us as a provider, which we are happy to meet,” said Kristian Winckler, Senior Consultant at Nordlo Malmö when asked about working with Välinge Innovation.
