IP Australia is one of Australia's oldest federal government agencies. Their challenge is to provide a scalable storage system to streamline inefficient legacy systems, allowing 24x7 availability to customers and staff, significant system performance improvements, and minimal business impact. They chose NetApp to overcome these challenges. They implemented a storage-as-a-service solution based on NetApp FAS3000 series high-performance architecture, NetApp FAS2000 series system for testing and development, NetApp SnapMirror, and NetApp FlexClone. The results of implementing NetApp FAS3000 series were efficient, scalable, highly available storage environment, higher staff productivity, little to no downtime, storage space savings of up to 40:1 and reduced power consumption, reduced cooling and space requirements.
