MedPlast, a leading medical devices company, was challenged when their existing backup targets were becoming full and backup windows were getting longer and longer. Instead of throwing more and more disk (and money) at the problem Dan Streufert, IT Director, started evaluating cloud storage to fix the problem and provide a long-term solution.
“We looked at all of the vendors in this space”, said Dan, “and I reached the conclusion that StorSimple had the most fully baked product of the various choices out there and they seemed to have the most enterprise class product and organization. When you are talking about primary storage and backup it is one of the most critical parts of your infrastructure and you need to really have confidence in that vendor. Even from the first impressions of hardware you can tell its enterprise class.”
Implementing StorSimple allowed MedPlast to dramatically lower their storage infrastructure costs, eliminate the use of tapes for backup, provision (and pay for) capacity as needed and provide disaster recovery for the first time. StorSimple is a new way of thinking about storage. It provides primary storage, Snapshots and Cloud Snapshots in one box. You can “set it and forget it” and it just runs on schedule.
