Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN’s goal is to better manage, store, and access mass amounts of unstructured data generated by the team in a reliable and secure manner. This data will help provide insights that deliver better results on the track.

Their Problem

A deluge of sensor data to store and make sense of.

In a sport that generates gigabytes upon gigabytes of data from sensors on the cars and at the factory, data storage presents several challenges. These include increasing cloud storage or on-premises storage costs, unpredictable TCO, and data management complexity in the cloud.

Their Solution
