Executive Summary

LightEdge Solutions Inc. is a leading provider of fully managed network and business services, voice services, and hosting for small- and medium-sized businesses in the Midwest and Southwest. LightEdge also provides data protection services for many of its clients. In the past, its solutions were based on regional tape-based replication at the company's physical data facilities. Although tape backup did provide some degree of data protection to its clients, the tape backup process was slow and difficult to administer, and restores were unreliable. The company's challenge was to provide a wide variety of services and improve data protection capabilities for all clients. LightEdge selected two NetApp NearStore R200 near-line systems and a NetApp FAS250 storage system. The R200s are the primary devices used for backing up clients' data and applications.
