GeoEngineers: Riverbed Whitewater Cloud Storage Gateways Help Ensure Business Continuity and Slash Data Storage Costs by 50 percent
GeoEngineers, which offers an integrated suite of services for companies looking to build communities, to harness and manage the earth's resources, and to move both products and people, was spending too much time and money on its existing disk-to-disk data storage process. Restoring files could take half a day. The company needed a better data protection plan, so it turned to Riverbed Technology. Riverbed helped GeoEngineers store its data in the public cloud using a Riverbed Whitewater cloud storage gateway in conjunction with the Amazon S3 data storage service. Data storage costs have since dropped by over 50 percent. Meanwhile, maintenance and upgrade costs have been eliminated, saving the company up to $60,000 over two years.
