ABC Photosigns is an IT-dependent operation. Much of the value in its offering lies in the large datasets it holds – as ABC provides clients with campaign concept, layout design and development, hi-resolution images and associated software and system integration. It was struggling with an out of warranty, unreliable physical server and storage infrastructure that was putting the business at risk.
Gavin Peattie, IT Officer at ABC Photosigns says: “Our existing storage was a mess. The disaster recovery replication hadn’t been configured correctly, so it didn’t work – made worse as we’d sacrificed performance and support by choosing a low-cost vendor, and were relying on the limited English of a Thai help desk. We clearly needed a fresh approach.”
A new SAN environment was to deliver high performance and peace of mind.
