Executive Summary

Wisconsin Independent Network (WIN) serves telecom and wireless carriers and hails itself as one of the premier network providers. This case study speaks about the strategies adopted by WIN for an energy and cost efficient solution to reduce power and cooling costs at WIN data centers. This allows them to manage multiple and different types of data and applications on a common platform. The paper also studies the challenges faced by the company to arrange a safe data backup service for Airstream which is its ISP sister company. Airstream offers internet services and delivers network traffic data, historical trends and other transactional information to a secondary location from its primary data site. The paper discusses the change brought about by the company in the methods used for data backup. Originally, the company stored customer information via NetApp 3050. However, it is now using Pillar as the standard for securing data backup at primary as well as secondary sites. The Pillar Axiom manages data and applications in WIN's primary and secondary data centers. It also provides the businesses with a secondary data back-up facility. Apart from this, WIN has been successful in customizing its platform to include data and recovery backup services for residential and enterprise customers.
