ChallengeVail 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.
SolutionThe 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.
