Hitachi Data Systems Case Study: St. Mark's Catholic School
Source: Hitachi Data Systems
A highly successful Catholic school in Hounslow, West London St. Mark's educates 1,200 students from ages 11 to 18. It is a forward thinking institution with the status of a technical college, so courses are becoming increasingly electronic, with strong demand for online availability of all course documents and resources. With continuously growing data volumes, St. Mark's was struggling with lengthy backups to hard disk that often could not be completed in the time available overnight. Its Microsoft Windows 2003 storage server was fast approaching its capacity limit. To master these challenges St. Mark's turned to Hitachi data System. Hitachi Simple Modular Storage 100 emerged as the most cost-effective solution. With over six terabytes of usable capacity, it provided room to expand storage facilities.
