Consolidating Windows Storage and Servers Yields Big Benefits
Osiris Therapeutics, Inc. has been working since 1992 to develop and commercialize cellular therapies based on stem cells isolated from readily available and noncontroversial adult bone marrow. They were in the midst of clinical trials to bring the world's first stem cell therapy to market, and the data storage needs were growing exponentially. Then they evolved the infrastructure to fully virtualize the Windows servers with all Windows storage and file serving consolidated on a single, clustered NetApp storage system for improved availability, scalability, and ease of management. This infrastructure is designed not only to meet the needs now, but also to grow with over at least the next 12 to 24 months.
