KnowledgeBase Marketing provides information and database marketing solutions that enable companies to acquire and manage profitable customer relationships across traditional and Web-based contact points. The company's challenge was to provide cost-effective storage for data growing at more than 35% per year to improve storage utilization and management. They wanted to reduce storage administration and maintenance costs and move data center from Houston to Dallas. Following a storage assessment performed by Sun Professional Services, KnowledgeBase Marketing consolidated multiple storage platforms and implemented an Information Lifecycle Management (ILM)/storage virtualization strategy to improve its storage utilization and reduce TCO. As a follow-on project, Sun helped the customer move its data center from Houston to Dallas, Texas, and refresh its mainframe environment.
