The Albuquerque Bernalillo County Water Utility Authority is responsible for keeping the water flowing to the City of Albuquerque, New Mexico, and its surrounding metropolitan area. When the water authority was launched as an independent utility with its own budget and set up on its own in 2007, it had to build its own storage infrastructure for its two critical systems: an IBM Maximo Asset Management system tracking its billion dollars in assets and an Oracle Utilities Customer Care and Billing system providing account information for its customer base. The water authority purchased two NetApp FAS3020HA storage systems, one running in the organization's main data center and the other running in the disaster recovery site.
