File Virtualization Yields Big Gains in Efficiency for Major Financial Services Company
Source: F5 Networks
One of the world's most notable financial institutions, this company provides individuals, businesses, and organizations around the globe with a full suite of products and services including wealth management, investment banking, and insurance. Storage growth rates of 30 percent annually had made it increasingly difficult for this global financial services company to efficiently manage the more than 700 TeraBytes (TB) of data stored in its Microsoft Windows Server environment. The company decided that implementing a file virtualization solution would provide the flexibility it needed, so it deployed ARX6000 file virtualization devices from F5. By implementing the F5 file virtualization solution, the financial services company streamlined its storage management tasks, reduced downtime for uses, minimized storage costs, and is well positioned to seamlessly accommodate future storage growth.
