STORServer and Management Council of the Ohio Education Computer Network to co-present at IBM Pulse 2012

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – (March 1, 2012) [PULSE 2012 Session CSM-1878] – STORServer®, an IBM business partner and leading provider of proven data backup solutions for the mid-market, announces today it will present alongside customer Management Council of the Ohio Education Computer Network (MCOECN) at the IBM Pulse 2012 user conference in Las Vegas on Monday, March 5 at 3:30 p.m.

MCOECN Enterprise Project Manager Ryan McClay and STORServer President Bill Smoldt will lead a joint presentation in MGM Grand room 117 on how the state education system is achieving cost-effective backup and disaster recovery using appliances to a Tivoli Storage Manager-based (TSM) community cloud.

Attendees can expect to:

  • Learn about a mature community cloud offering
  • See how TSM can be configured for cloud services
  • Receive tips on avoiding problems in setting up TSM for cloud services

Through its Information Technology Centers, the MCOECN serves more than 1.2 million students and nearly 200,000 teachers and administrators with a broad range of IT services and applications in Ohio’s public education system.

“Ohio officials were trying to manage the storage needs of more than 725 schools districts across the state, all with different needs, storage capabilities and operating systems, and all while maintaining proper disaster recovery assurance,” said Smoldt. “Although consolidating storage of all the school districts sounded like a nearly impossible task, we’re eager to show the IBM user audience how the MCOECN is using a combination of automated local backups to STORServer Backup Appliances and directly to the STORServer Backup Appliance-based cloud service to save time, money and resources.”

STORServer offers a complete suite of best-in-class appliances, software and services. The company offers customer support and sales engineering teams located close to customers across the country. Its industry leading software and solutions support boast a 97 percent annual customer renewal rate.

The MCOECN needed to achieve a reduction in the amount of time, money and resources needed to perform backup, archive and disaster recovery. STORServer enabled the organization to attain cost-effective backups and disaster recovery using appliances to a TSM-based community cloud.

STORServer will be exhibiting at booth E408 at Pulse 2012. To learn more about STORServer and its products, visit www.storserver.com.
