David Oelfke, IT Director at RLS2000 noted that Sami Ventriglia, Broadleaf Solution Specialist on this project was “nothing short of responsive, helpful and level-minded. I cannot imagine him losing his cool in any circumstance; even after hours when we required attention, Sami’s work ethics and personality shined. I had the pleasure of working with a true professional; anxieties that are normally associated with such large projects were non-existent—Sami really pulled everything together. A great asset to a great company.” Oelfke also noted that Broadleaf engineer, Matt Van Wormer, “was awesome…he was up to speed in a few minutes…changes were made really fast. Everyone is very happy with the new servers and storage.”
“…attending Broadleaf’s technology lunch seminars built my confidence in their expertise. I turned to them to improve uptime for an electronic patient care record application and they provided an efficient, cost effective solution that met the uptime needs and allowed for better management and protection of all of BMF’s data and applications as well as a strong DR plan.”
“Working with Broadleaf has allowed Institution for Savings to provide LAN-like performance over the WAN. We are seeing up to a 5x improvement in throughput. The Riverbed solution has led to better control over data as well as a better experience for the end user.”
“The Broadleaf team did a great job of listening to our requirements, understanding our environment and keeping our long term goals in mind. We don’t have a large IT team that can dedicate a lot of time to managing the storage platform, so we really needed an easy to use, easy to install solution. The Broadleaf team came onsite and worked with us side by side. We were up and running with the new platform in a day and through their knowledge transfer, we know how to be self sufficient with the system as well. Broadleaf was a great resource throughout this process from initial requirement analysis, right through implementation.”
“After our successful implementation of a WAN optimization solution with Broadleaf, we again turned to their expertise for help with data storage and protection. Their thorough understanding of our environment, needs and goals led them to recommend and implement a server and storage virtualization solution that provides all of the flexibility and protection that we need to run our business effectively and confidently.”
Amazing changes have taken place in this realm in recent years. The number of newer vendors and ground breaking technologies are staggering. . Unification and convergence are key strategies to promote data center efficiency.
Controlling storage growth has become one of the most important challenges for many companies. This white paper explores six ways to control storage growth that others have used with great success.
Highlights at the VTUG Winter Warmer 2013 included virtualizing SQL servers, Simplivity, Riverbed WAN optimization & network management, cloud topics, and hybrid storage approaches.
