Major West Coast Research University Cuts Data Replication Costs

Using Komprise, the university was able to see that over 60% of the data on the NAS had not been accessed in over a year and could be replicated more cost effectively

Abstract

A major research university on the West Coast has accumulated petabytes of data sitting on Network Attached Storage (NAS). The traditional approach of protecting this data, keeping a Demand Response (DR) copy on a mirrored environment, was too expensive and therefore untenable. As a result, the majority of data sitting on the NAS was not replicated and the University was at risk of data loss, which is undesirable.
