Optimize and Protect Your Assets

Organizations today are faced with the challenge of limited IT budgets, disparate systems, and the need to keep mission-critical applications available at all times. CAS Severn’s storage and systems management experts will work with you to customize a solution that will addresses your organization-specific and industry-specific challenges.

With so many storage options, brands, and strategies today, choosing the right fit for your organization’s needs can be overwhelming and time-consuming. That’s why we want to know more about your challenges and goals, and what solutions your team is exploring. Our team of experts can work with your team to validate, recommend options, or build a custom solution to meet your specific needs.

We specialize in every type and flavor of data storage, as well as storage efficiency technologies such as thin provisioning, compression, and deduplication. The marketplace is seeing an explosion in storage innovation, and CAS Severn invests in staying abreast of the newest options like these.

  • Converged and Hyper-Converged Infrastructure Solutions
  • Server SAN Solutions
  • On-Prem Backup and Disaster Recovery Storage Solutions

Data loss can be extremely costly to an organization. Not only can it affect an organization’s productivity, but it can also cause legal exposure, damage a company’s reputation, and hinder client relationships.

It’s important to find a data backup and recovery solution that is flexible, scalable, and cost-effective. CAS Severn’s team often recommends IBM Spectrum Protect, a data protection platform that gives enterprises a wide range of backup, snapshot, archive, recovery, space management, bare machine recovery, and disaster-recovery capabilities. It can help protect data on systems of all sizes, from a single point of control.


Through storage consolidation and virtualization, organizations are able to corral rising data volumes, meet the demands of data-intensive application workloads, and drive more efficient system performance. CAS Severn has the implementation experience to make managing your storage simple.

Discover how we help our clients maximize their storage environment’s uptime, analytics, adaptability, and ease of management. Our clients have been able to increase their storage capacity by an estimated 50 to 70%.

We can help you:

  • Implement a solution that doesn’t make you go offline to make changes.

GeekGuide-Why Innovative App Developers Love High-Speed OSDBMS

Take the complexities out of OSDBMS. When traditional databases can’t handle the big data deluge from mobile, social and IoT, open source seems like the obvious choice. Except… there are literally dozens of choices. LinuxJournal’s “Geek Guide,” Why Innovative App Developers Love High-Speed OSDBMS, demystifies the OSDBMS landscape and outlines the challenges and opportunities that open source brings to development:

IBM Power Systems and MongoDB for today’s applications

The explosive growth of social applications, big data, mobile access and cloud computing is changing the way applications are developed. There’s less time to build applications than ever before as competition is fierce. Today, apps ship in a few weeks or months, not years. Unstructured data—video, images, audio—is becoming more prevalent, which can be problematic for traditional databases.
