Sundance Institute is a non-profit organization dedicated to the discovery and development of independent artists and audiences across the globe. Their challenges are they need a rapid growing storage demands and seasonal swings that more than doubled both its IT staff and the load on its existing infrastructure and there wasn't enough storage to fully backup the extensive video archive. They chose StorSimple to overcome these challenges. The Sundance Film Festival, IT group considered a software-as-a-service, pay-as-you-go model, leveraging cloud storage to help scale without massive capex investments, when IT discovered that StorSimple could provide all of these capabilities in one system. The results of implementing StorSimple were saved 80% on SAN storage costs, and it reduced backup times by 70%.
