Financial Services Companies Utilizing SnapServer NAS Solutions

Aiding In The Assistance of Asset Recovery

  • A large debt collection agency based in Dallas, Texas required a cost effective storage solution that provided multi-protocol support and the ability to expand shared storage data pools in order to support the agency's file sharing, backup and off-site replication needs. (TVID: 1F7-FD3-C0B)
  • The agency is currently storing 2-4TB of data on the SnapServer and has reported saving over $4,000-$5,000 in total cost of ownership compared to a traditional storage alternative. (TVID: 1F7-FD3-C0B)

"When we implemented the first SnapServer in 2003, the TCO for maintaining the traditional Windows Servers went down to 10%. We were sold. Since then, not until VMware came into production, we implemented another Windows Server. With the advent of iSCSI, we now use SnapServers to Nearline backup of VM images/snapshots and the price point of a SAN over the NAS solutions is the decision maker for us. We are too small for a SAN, yet hold enough data to merit a NAS of the size we have. In few words: SnapServers are the way to go for our business model." (TVID: 1F7-FD3-C0B)
