St. Johns River Water Management District conserves storage resources with cloud capacity
NATICK, MA – April 29, 2014 – /BackupReview.info/ — TwinStrata, an innovator in cloud-integrated storage solutions, today announced that St. Johns River Water Management District has successfully implemented TwinStrata CloudArray for multi-site file sharing, offsite data protection and disaster recovery. The St. Johns River Water Management District is one of five water management districts in Florida.
CloudArray is replacing the organization’s existing tape backup system. With 80 terabytes (TBs) of backup data sent to tape, the District was spending approximately $150,000 every year on the staff time, resources and external service providers required to manage, store, retrieve and maintain their offsite tape library. As a result of this transition, the District is recouping many hours spent on maintaining tape backups while also putting in place a more robust offsite data protection strategy to help protect it in the event of a disaster.
Prior to the selection of CloudArray, the IT team spent more than six months investigating different options, and found that:
Since the District needed at least four appliances – one for each of its three major service centers, as well as a field station – the costs for such a hardware-based strategy was multiplied.
The District has already begun to experience benefits from the new backup strategy. Backups that previously required a day-long manual process have now been fully automated, freeing up a system administrator’s time – time that can now be spent supporting and advancing the agency’s strategic IT initiatives.
The District has three major service centers, five field stations and the primary data center that share files across a single 10TB CIFS share. Unfortunately, it takes nearly a week to back up.
By using CloudArray’s robust file-sharing capabilities combined with its sophisticated in-cloud snapshots, the District will not only retain read and write access to the files across its geographically distributed offices, it will also eliminate the need to back up its file systems to tape. By the end of the year, the organization anticipates that more than seven million files will be housed in Google Cloud Storage, accessible via CIFS and NFS through CloudArray.
