Nimble Storage Enables Rapid, No-Compromise Data Protection and Disaster Recovery for GRCA
GRCA's main office is located in Cambridge, Ontario. Over 150 full-time employees work for the agency year-round. Their challenges are rapidly running out of storage capacity, unable to meet 24-hour backup windows, unable to store sufficient number of backups, increasing risk of data loss and migrating and managing tapes was time consuming, restores were unreliable. They chose Nimble Storage to overcome these challenges. They deployed to Nimble Storage arrays: CS260G for production, CS220 for disaster recovery and Nimble Storage InfoSight. The results of deploying Nimble Storage were reduced business-critical MS SQL, eliminated differential backup window of 13 hours each night, saved over $6,000 in annual license, eliminated 10 hours of sys admin and reduced data center power and cooling costs.
