A Maryland College approached CAS Severn when its data center had hit its capacity for power, cooling, and space. The school needed to do something to accommodate its growing IT infrastructure needs. After CAS Severn experts performed an assessment and advised school officials of the best way to accomplish their goals, then helped them implement the plan.
We helped the college obtain and implement IBM system p servers, IBM nSeries storage systems, IBM’s Diligent hardware and software for deduplication requirements, IBM TSM for backup and recovery, and IBM Blade servers.
The Security software provided the capability to backup and restore data to both tape drives and the SAN. IBM Security Storage Manager also provided the most extensive support to various applications and operating systems over any other enterprise backup software on the market. AIX VIO allowed the College to consolidate many disparate systems.
