NetApp Business Intelligence Architecture Saves $3 Million
With about 8,000 employees in more than 135 offices worldwide, NetApp creates innovative storage and data management solutions that accelerate business breakthroughs and deliver outstanding cost efficiency. Their challenge is to deliver near-real-time business intelligence from a global data warehouse with high availability worldwide. They implemented NetApp SnapMirror, FlexClone, and Snapshot technology to quickly replicate data and space-efficiently clone a 50TB data warehouse. The results of deploying NetApp SnapMirror were near-real-time data with no disruption to transactional production systems (OLTP), 24x7 availability eliminates up to 15 hours of downtime per patch and 90% productivity gain equivalent to 7700 hours per year in performing database refresh.
