Carestream Dental Takes a Bite Out of Storage-Related Costs With NetApp
Carestream Dental LLC, the exclusive manufacturer of KODAK Dental Systems, offers imaging and practice management systems in the United States. They need to reduce maintenance costs, improve storage efficiency, and simplify IT management. Carestream Dental chose NetApp to overcome these challenges. They replaced aging EMC systems with NetApp shared storage infrastructure. The results of deploying were achieved more than 100% utilization for storage capacity, reduced data center floor space consumption by 50%, cut QA and product development time by at least 12.5 hours per day, reduced restore time from hours or days to minutes, and virtually eliminated downtime and reduced IT management time.
