In addition, by transferring historic data to BrickStor SP with TDM, Florida Peninsula Insurance restored 70% of storage capacity on its 60 TB system to help offset high demand for archived data storage and save thousands in annual storage costs. After the initial 90-day trial period, the company decided to move forward with leveraging the solution. It has also purchased a second BrickStor SP licensing for a larger 400 TB system, with interest in consolidating its existing NetApp and Compellent storage systems into a single high-availability BrickStor SP cluster at the conclusion of the current support agreements. “The product has been flawless,” said Herbert.
The product has been flawless . . . The partnership has worked out really well for what we wanted.
“From my experience, it’s so simple to use. I’ve done NetApp administration and I’ve done Dell EMC administration. They are both solid products, but they are very convoluted and difficult to learn, whereas with BrickStor SP, it literally took 15 minutes for me to understand how it operates. The partnership has worked out really well for what we wanted.”
