NetApp Reference Roundtable – Oct. 10th
Thursday, October 10, 2013
11 a.m. PT / 2 p.m. ET
Join John Roman, Director of IT, Gregory Zalewski, Senior Network Engineer, and Walter Burnett, Systems Engineer Manager from Nixon Peabody LLP to learn how the company’s IT team deployed NetApp® storage and Flash Cache™ to improve performance of the firm’s mission-critical Microsoft® Exchange messaging environment by 50%, while reducing infrastructure costs.
Nixon Peabody has more than 600 attorneys across the United States, Europe, and Asia to support clients worldwide. E-mail is critical to Nixon Peabody legal staff, who rely on Microsoft Exchange as a primary communication tool to share case information with authorized teams inside and outside the firm. The IT team manages approximately 3,000 mailboxes, and if Microsoft Exchange is slow, vital processes such as discovery, collaboration, and response time to clients are affected.
Although outstanding performance is essential, the firm must also balance performance requirements with fiscal prudence. Nixon Peabody replaced its legacy EMC storage with NetApp FAS6210 and FAS3250 storage systems running NetApp clustered Data ONTAP® and NetApp Flash Cache controller-attached PCIe intelligent caching to optimize performance and reduce IT costs.
In this interactive roundtable conference call, attendees will learn how this solution has enabled Nixon Peabody to:
- Provide uninterrupted access to applications for busy legal teams.
- Increase e-mail users by as much as 67% without adding disk drives.
- Accelerate e-mail performance by 50%, exceeding SLAs.
- Use 50% less rack space and less power and cooling than traditional HDD solutions.
- Reduce infrastructure costs.
How a NetApp Reference Roundtable Works
NetApp Reference Roundtables are teleconferences during which NetApp customers provide a brief overview of their organization’s storage solutions. The calls are then opened up for dialog and questions from participants.
