Benefits Analysis. This approach has already delivered big benefits for some
customers including a $1.3M on one project - see below. See the Services link for
more details.

Projects Include:
Data Migration Project
Winner of a A global award for “Best
Practices in Storage
” at Storage
Networking World in Phoenix.

This was for a data centre migration
from UK to Prague for a global courier
company.  This was a 7 month project
utilising one of first worldwide
implementations of SAN based
virtualisation, and in-house developed
provisioning application to migrate core
HP-UX systems.  
Data De-duplication Project
Working with partner SIT, a state of the
art virtual tape solution was implemented
at a large European Car Manufacturer.
This incorporated data
de-duplication
and
replication technologies from
multiple vendors as a single integrated
solution. The solution allowed
all
primary backups to move to disk.
Backup Optimisation Project
A new backup and recovery
infrastructure was implemented for a
global engineering company. For this
project, simulation modelling was used
to design a solution that incorporated
virtual and physical tape across two
sites. The
cost saving over a
traditional tape solution has been over
$1.3M for the customer. This solution
was presented at Storage Networking
World in Frankfurt in October 2007, and
again incorporated leading edge
data
de-duplication
technology.
