Key benefits for Churchill are the ease with which data can be restored and the spend avoided for more 3PAR capacity.
Henderson said: “We can restore from the last save – it makes a restore point for every save – which is handy when the commercial team have spent five hours writing a large Excel file and them made a mistake and over-written it, or a big graphics file has been accidentally deleted.”
“We have saved tens of thousands of pounds by not having to buy 3PAR. The line of business is still on 3PAR, but now we don’t have to worry about capacity limitations and constantly have to monitor it. “3PAR was east to set up at first, but we had to watch whether the wrong areas were filling up.”
