Sacramento County Increases Storage Efficiency by Up to 80%
Located in California's central valley, Sacramento County is home to the state capital and nearly 1.4 million residents. This is the centralized IT and telecommunications service provider for the county's 47 departments. Their challenge is to decrease IT costs, increase workforce productivity, and increase individual e-mail mailbox size limits. They chose NetApp to overcome these challenges. They implemented NetApp deduplication technology to increase storage efficiency and accelerated backup and restores using NetApp SnapManager tools. The results of implementing NetApp deduplication technology were reduced storage space requirements by 50% to 80%, accelerated virtual machine and e-mail restores from hours to 10 minutes, increased individual mailbox size limit for users from 30MB to 250MB and shortened backup windows for vital records from 48 hours to seconds.
