Challenge
Vail Resorts uses leading-edge technologies to enhance skiers’ slope-side experience and differentiate itself from other ski companies. To streamline back-end systems, the company wanted to launch a virtual platform, but first it needed to replace its legacy storage solution.
Solution
The company deployed two Dell Compellent™ Storage Center SANs. The new storage platform has proven so scalable and straightforward to manage that Vail Resorts was able to introduce new storage-intensive photo sharing functionality for ski guests.
Benefits
• 2-fold more data managed without adding staff
• Projected 5-figure annual cost avoidance by eliminating forklift upgrades
• More efficient storage allocation enables company to delay purchases of additional disk capacity
• 83 percent faster data recovery
