Challenge
Bay District Schools wanted to increase storage capacity and improve recovery objectives while moving to storage and data protection solutions that would be easier to use.
Solution
The district migrated data from its legacy IBM® and EMC® environment to Dell Compellent Storage Center storage area networks (SANs) and Dell AppAssure backup and recovery software, all leased through Dell Financial Services.
Benefits
• Doubled storage capacity with complete backup and recovery solution for same cost as legacy storage area network (SAN), reducing storage total cost of ownership (TCO) by 38 percent
• 5-fold faster server recovery, improving productivity for students, faculty and staff
• Continuous data protection vs. 72-hour recovery point objective for home directories
• Projected same-day recovery in disaster scenario
• Zero storage downtime
