Plex Systems, Inc. is the developer of Plex Online, a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution for manufacturing companies.

The results of implementing NetApp were averted $2.7 million in upfront investment while enabling leading-edge storage solution for its SaaS cloud, decreased RPOs (Recovery Point Objectives) and RTOs (Recovery Time Objectives) from 24 to 2 hours and reduced storage space as much as 75% with NetApp storage efficiency technologies such as deduplication.
