Question of the Month: What storage project had the biggest positive impact on your company's business?


    "Disk library. We back up daily to tape. But we duplicate all jobs to a virtual disk library, which enables us to restore up to a week's worth of data without having to recall media from Iron Mountain."
    --George Montany, Daymon Worldwide, Stamford, CT

    "We implemented a Compellent SAN about a year ago and it has had a tremendous impact on how we deploy servers' restore data. I rarely need to depend on tape now for restores."
    --Corey Puchalski, IT manager at CyberOptics Corp., Minneapolis

    "Using Oracle databases in a standby configuration in conjunction with block-level replication software has had an enormous positive impact. We can now compress refresh windows for our QA/Dev SAP landscape roughly 90% over using tape and file-system copies."
    --Anthony M. Bar, senior Unix administrator, Applera Corp.
