No-one likes getting a bill they’re not expecting and that
goes for IT managers too. Spiraling costs for storing data can be a constant
headache, especially if you’re under budgetary pressure.
Integra Schools provides IT support to over 200 schools and
academies in the south west of England. Its storage platform was struggling to
perform as it won new business and when Integra looked into the costs of
upgrading it became clear this would be prohibitive.
Cristie Data implemented a new more cost-effective solution
based on HPE Nimble storage which uses solid state disks to deliver
lightning-fast storage for all types of workloads. Along with a predictive
analytics platform called InfoSight that spots potential storage issues before
they arise, the solution has vastly improved Integra’s storage environment. Now
when a new school is added to Integra’s infrastructure, the team can budget
properly and plan storage accurately.
With the amount of data globally set to increase almost
exponentially, it’s clear that access to affordable and predictable storage is
a must. Read the case
