Solving Storage Sprawl
Typical of many companies, Falken Tire's data center over time became home to a hodgepodge of storage vendors, Braico said. "They had IBM, Apple, NetApp, StorageTek, G-Tech and EMC Symmetrix storage," he said.
Falken Tire decided to migrate to two EMC VNX 5300 arrays with a total 400 TB of capacity, Braico said.
"We liked the manageability of EMC's Unisphere software," Garcia said. While one of the arrays handles the company's infrastructure, email, Oracle and other applications, the other serves the company's marketing communications department.
