Case Study: LJA Engineering Selects Spectra Logic’s Verde NAS, Komprise Software
LJA Engineering has selected a Spectra Verde NAS Solution combined with Komprise data management software to manage and store the firm’s growing amounts of data. Verde NAS acts as both an archive repository and backup target, while Komprise provides a single, comprehensive view of the organization’s data across storage. Together, Spectra Logic and Komprise enable LJA Engineering to optimize their data storage, delivering a fully integrated, cost-efficient solution with superior performance and capacity.
LJA Engineering manages more than 300TB of data and is required to retain it for a minimum of 10 years. The organization was in search of a NAS-based solution that would provide them with visibility across all storage platforms, and allow them to identify and move legacy data to a live archive on a daily basis.
LJA Engineering selected the Spectra Verde NAS Solution with Komprise data management software to meet its network environment criteria. With Komprise, users can identify less frequently accessed data and automatically archive it to the Verde solution from various storage systems, including Windows and Linux file servers.
The Spectra Verde NAS Solution is the optimal disk platform for storage of mid-tier data, including primary storage offload, data staging, backup and archive. Flexible, simple and affordable, the Spectra Verde delivers file storage for as low as 7.5 cents per gigabyte and provides raw storage capacities from 48TB to 7.1PB. With Komprise, Spectra Logic customers can quickly scans large data sets, pinpoint and analyze inactive data to determine cost savings, and move data to Verde NAS without disruption to the organization. Data remains accessible from existing storage with no changes to users or applications.
“Utilizing Spectra’s Verde NAS with Komprise has enabled LJA Engineering to more efficiently and effectively manage our data, freeing up time and resources,” says David Kimball, IT manager, LJA Engineering. “The products integrate together seamlessly, providing us with the ideal archive for our assets and delivering the best ROI.”
“With Komprise, LJA Engineering can forecast the ROI of various data policies and quickly adjust storage to meet business objectives,” says Krishna Subramanian, COO of Komprise. “Komprise transparently moves less active data to the affordable Spectra Verde NAS, without disrupting the firm’s associates or their applications.”
“Spectra’s Verde NAS Solution is an economical, reliable, easy-to-use disk system, designed to simplify the data storage process,” says Brian Grainger, Spectra Logic’s CSO. “Coupled with Komprise, it allows users to maximize their ROI, lowering the cost of storage to support exponential data growth. The joint solution has enabled LJA Engineering to optimize their storage environment, providing them with the tools to protect and preserve their digital data for years to come.”
