Compared with the hybrid HP-IBM environment we had, we are light-years ahead with our Dell Compellent solution. Our end users are more productive, and so am I.

ChallengeHaggar ran virtual servers and virtual desktops on a pair of legacy storage area networks (SANs). The arrays, from HP and IBM, were approaching end of life. One was also maxed out and causing performance issues for the virtual desktop environment.
SolutionThe company consolidated data from both SANs onto a Dell™ Compellent™ array, using thin provisioning to reduce the disk space needed. Haggar also replaced a legacy data protection solution with a Dell DR4000 backup appliance.
Benefits• 40+ hours/month reclaimed for end users by moving to high-performing storage
• 70 percent less IT staff time spent on storage management
• $12,000 annual savings on disk purchases
• 30-fold increase in time backup data is kept on-site, enabling 75 percent faster restores
