ABSTRACT:
Growing companies want to put in a SAN so they can virtualize. They want SAS drives for high performance. They also want to reduce costs and simplify management by using SATA drives, which are ideal for backups, snapshots and information that's not frequently accessed.

McNeil Technologies, a Springfield, VA federal contractor with services ranging from language translation to IT solutions, recently completed a merger with TRAWICK & Associates, Inc. In so doing, McNeil merged data centers, consolidated and virtualized servers and slashed data center waste.

While McNeil is benefiting from having both SAS and SATA drives in a single SAN by using SATA drives to store snapshots of the active data on the SAS drives. The AX4-5 has allowed McNeil to stand shoulder-to shoulder with much larger enterprises when it comes to data storage sophistication and efficiency.
