Executive Summary

The City of Norfolk needed to increase its storage capabilities to provide employees and citizens with rapid, reliable services, as well as to shift the IT focus to delivering better performance and supporting new services rather than managing storage. After carefully evaluating five competing solutions, the best option to address the city's storage needs also turned out to be the most affordable: IBM XIV Storage System. After migrating to XIV, storage performance immediately surged 40 percent. Power and cooling costs plunged 50 percent compared with the previous SAN. And the advanced grid architecture of XIV means higher resiliency and redundancy for critical data.
