The City of Atascadero (Atascadero, California)

"DataCore SANmelody has been 100% reliable. The biggest benefit we have seen is the fact that we can add storage without bringing anything down. Now we are not paying for any storage that we are not using. We were also looking for a product that would give us theability to facilitate DR and thin provisioning. Both of these requirements were met with the DataCore SANmelody product.

The final consideration for us was that our professional services provider – Helixstorm – has a long relationship with DataCore and VMware. They were able to virtualize 95% of our environment. Helixstorm delivered above and beyond the statement of work. They provided the HA environment we need to support the SLAs to our customers along with asynchronous data replication to our remote site. We can have our virtual servers back online in about 15 minutes should we suffer a major disaster at our primary site.”
