The results were everything Madsen had hoped for.
"Last year was the first time in my 10 years working here I had zero complaints," he said. "Zero people were calling me and asking if the data had flowed through yet. It was wonderful. In years past, I would have to shut down in the middle of the day. I don't have to do that any more."
Bishop said he loves hearing how customers have benefited from working with VeriStor. "That's the best reward we as a solution provider can get," he said.
VeriStor proved to be a solid partner in the process, Madsen said.
"They came in and had several discussions with us before they started talking which manufacturer to use," he said. "They wanted to know how our operations work before they said what they would propose. It was kind of refreshing."
Since VeriStor installed the initial HP 3PAR F400, the solution provider has added three new disk shelves to increase capacity.
VeriStor also is talking to HoneyBaked about implementing an entry-level HP 3PAR StoreServ 7400 array as a disaster recovery option, Madsen said.
