Manufacturer Uses Hybrid Cloud Model to Gain Increased Storage, Unprecedented Agility
GF Health Products is a fast-growing medical equipment manufacturer adept at using technology to speed up its business. However, a number of new technology systems caused data volumes to grow, and the company began to run out of storage space. It turned to Microsoft partner Intellinet to devise a hybrid cloud strategy. GF Health used Microsoft hybrid cloud storage to immediately expand storage, Windows Azure to provide cloud-based virtual machines for development and disaster recovery, and Windows Server 2012 R2 and Microsoft System Center 2012 R2 to fashion an on-premises private cloud environment. With this strategy, GF Health gained a nearly limitless pool of storage and freed its small IT staff to focus on solving business problems and speed server delivery.
