ITW Manages 1500 Servers – Reduces Cost and Complexity with Deduplication Solution
Reclaims 140 Terabytes of storage with deduplication and compression
The volume of backups occurring each week was choking IT Weapon’s infrastructure. As a Managed Service Provider (MSP) for 1500 servers, backup and recovery were a critical, but expensive and cumbersome part of their business.
