Makino is a global leader in the manufacture of high performance machining centers and a provider of turnkey, engineering and integration services. Makino manufactures machine tools that let manufacturers make specific parts for a diverse range of products. The aerospace, die/mold, automotive, medical, construction and mining industries use Makino’s machines to produce precision components for a diverse range of products.

Managing dozens of datastores and LUNs in the existing virtual infrastructure was increasingly cumbersome. IT looked to replace Makino’s storage with a solution that would satisfy both the performance needs of its business-critical applications and enable generalist administrators to manage the entire virtual infrastructure, including the storage.
