Large Regional Transit Agency

When a mass transit agency for a large metropolitan area needed to streamline its data backup, it turned to STORServer to implement a simplified yet effective solution.

This innovative agency decided to take advantage of the newest IBM® Spectrum Protect™ features, and soon realized a search for a new backup solution needed to take place. Its existing mainframe was unable to handle the resource requirements for the newer version of IBM Spectrum Protect, thus necessitating a refresh of its existing data backup solution.



Metro City Government

After six years of continuous top-notch performance from its previous STORServer data backup system, the city decided to upgrade its current configuration in preparation for its evolving data backup needs and a necessary increase in raw storage capacity. Certain vendors used by the park department store pictures of their completed work on the city’s server, which inflates the overall storage footprint the city backs up daily.

In addition, all the city’s new projects are stored on virtualized servers, which increases its storage footprint and requires additional storage capacity. Under this new configuration, additional shelves of storage can easily be added to allow for future IT projects, such as mobile-based applications. STORServer’s total appliance solution scales with ease as the city’s data grows and is simple to upgrade and install with backups beginning on the first day.
