Case Study #1 - Nash County, North Carolina
Nash County Government had not refreshed its IT infrastructure in several years. Storage administration was constrained by inflexible storage systems, so IT staff could not respond to changes in storage requirements without extensive overtime. With Davenport Group's help, the county implemented a proven solution with server virtualization using Dell™ PowerEdge™ servers and Dell Compellent Storage Center SANs, Brocade switches and the Dell KACE Family of Systems Management Appliances. This resulted in 25% of IT staff being reclaimed for research and development, up to 60% reduction in server footprint, and projected 20-30% reduction in power and cooling costs.

Case Study #2 - Gaston County, North Carolina
With the assistance of Fluid Data technology, Gaston County migrated from 40 direct-attached server units to a unified, feature-rich storage center. Boot from SAN and virtualization technology have saved the county over $100,000, and streamlined administration has cut more than $50,000 annually.

Case Study #3 - WhereToLive.com
In order to keep its online real estate tools at the fingertips of brokers across the country, WhereToLive.com relies on Compellent to provide high availability and lightning-quick recovery. Fluid Data technology also enables an advanced development environment, improving quality of its services.

Case Study #4 - South Carolina Office of Attorney General
Fluid Data Technology holistically improved resource utilization and decreased costs for this state-funded organization. Consolidation saved $125K, and Automated Tiered Storage and Boot from SAN save $40K and $5-6K per year, respectively.

Case Study #5 - Scott County, Minnesota
This fast-growing county had been utilizing VMware resources for several years. Compellent not only enabled an integrated storage-side virtualization solution, but also reduced equipment by 20% and drastically decreased replication and recovery time.

Case Study #6 - Rudolph Technologies
Initiating remote replication between the company's Minnesota and New Jersey sites would have taken Rudolph nearly 4 months. But as one of Compellent's very first Portable Volume customers, administrators completed the task in just a couple days, saving man-hours and enabling progress.
