At BYU – Hawaii, the staff were getting frustrated with sluggish systems. The University had already upgraded servers and infrastructure but did not realize any perceived increase in speed when accessing data systems. Luckily the school was coming up on its five-year storage replacement cycle. The goal was to invest in a modern storage system, utilizing newer technologies that could handle the increasing demands for performance and capacity without excessive expense. The system had to be very intuitive and VMware friendly.
Join R. Neal Moss, BYU – Hawaii’s systems and network analyst for IT infrastructure, and Henry Baltazar, senior analyst at Forrester, as they discuss how the university overcame its storage challenges and share advice on what you can do to build a sustainable storage infrastructure.
