Breckenridge Picks NetApp

SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- NetApp (NASDAQ:NTAP) announced today that the Breckenridge Group, Inc. (BGI) created a more efficient and effective storage environment with the recent implementation of the StoreVault S500 storage solution.

BGI is a management firm specializing in the development, operations, and ongoing support of various restaurant and hotel locations throughout the western United States. BGI’s IT environment consisted of 150 workstations and 250 PC-based point of sales (POS) terminals in the field along with 80 workstations, 14 physical servers, and 16 virtual servers that were located in the company’s main office. With more than 4TB of direct-attached storage (DAS), the tasks of archiving, accessing, and backing up data were cumbersome. Furthermore, before installation of StoreVault, BGI utilized tape-based backup that was time consuming and difficult for new IT employees to quickly grasp. To complicate matters, BGI’s mission-critical data was growing at a rate of 500GB annually.

“BGI’s data proliferation was quickly reaching levels that made it more and more difficult for our previous storage architecture to handle,” said James Gantes, chief information officer with BGI. “We needed a solution that we could trust to manage our business-critical data and streamline our IT processes. NetApp more than met all of our key criteria, all at a great price point to boot.”
