Storage Case Study: Big Trees, Big Data
The Campbell Group, a management and investment firm in Oregon that trades in woodlands, works with quite unique data. The geospatial data they create comes from files in geographic information systems and expands very rapidly, particularly when it's all archived.
And when the firm began a project to digitize its archival data, they realized a need for storage capacity - 35 terabytes of it, in fact. The space was needed desperately; performance was degrading, they were running out of storage and sometimes the systems simply failed.
This case study covers the path the Campbell Group cleared in implementing SAN for flexibility and improved management and performance. Read on to learn how, with the help of a dedicated account manager, Campbell's IT manager was able to interview multiple vendors in order to choose the best technology for his company's data.
