No plane in Germany can take off without a weather briefing provided by us. In rescue situations, especially for search and rescue pilots, lives could be on the line. The Deutscher Wetterdienst is the national weather service of Germany. We have to issue warnings on weather situation that become a danger to the population in Germany. It’s disaster management, it’s shipping, it’s aviation. The forecasters need the data now. Nobody is interested in the weather forecast of yesterday. Our forcasters have an enormous amount of data they are faced with today, so performance is essential for our operations. We take in data from more than 2,000 measuring stations, numerous meteorological satellites, a network of 17 weather radars, and a number of international data sources. We need to merge this information so that a forecaster is able to create a forecast from that. Our application uses this data to create visualizations of meteorological situations in real-time for our forecasters. It was actually too slow for our operations. A forecast for a search and rescue pilot would take about 15 seconds. And if you have a pilot on the phone, that’s definitely too long. After implementing the NetApp solution we saw an enormous increase in speed. We really got what we wanted. We really arrived at one seconds, response time - even less. With All-Flash FAS we saw a latency of less than a millisecond. This reduced application response time from 15 seconds to 1 second. Everything worked flawlessly. We were able to provide features that were requested for a long time. We have a very very important role as a meteorological service. We are really proud of providing all the information to our customer that they need, especially in the area of warnings because this is what we are here for.
