CPP Selects StorSimple for Cloud Integrated Enterprise Storage
CPP Selects StorSimple for SharePoint and File Share Cloud Integrated Enterprise Storage
CPP, best known for the Meyers-Briggs Type Indicator® assessments, needed to reduce costs and simplify their storage lifecycle across primary storage, archival, backup and Disaster Recovery, as well as reduce or eliminate their use of tapes for backup. Phillip DeMello, Director of Network Operations and Technical Support, saw a demonstration of StorSimple at the Microsoft Technology Center while researching the use of cloud storage to reduce costs and simplify storage administration. Microsoft and VMware certifications, plus a short evaluation, convinced Phil that this was an ideal solution for CPP.
“You have one box that allows you to replace your backup software, tape support infrastructure, offsite service and many wasted man-hours”, said Phil. “StorSimple just works. It’s a no brainer.”
StorSimple provides “One Box” for cloud integrated enterprise storage encompassing primary, archiving, backup and Disaster Recovery. CPP was able to move all file share and SharePoint data to the StorSimple appliance providing both primary, local storage and cloud-as-a-tier for low-cost, long-term storage as well as backup and disaster recovery. StorSimple allowed CPP to defer the purchase of an additional SAN storage system and eliminate CPP’s use of a DLT tape system and offsite storage services.
