Case Studies

Most people don’t think about tires every day. Yet without them, many of us couldn’t get to our jobs, or school, or the hospital, or be able to acquire the goods we rely on to work and live whether they're purchased in person or online.

NetApp partners with ePlus, Cisco, and LiveAction to take business to the next level. NetApp, a storage and data management company, was dealing with aging infrastructure that didn’t meet current and future needs. They wanted a solution that enabled them to develop new products, increase revenue, and reduce costs.

As they grew operations, the company began to experience performance problems when tickets for an especially popular act went on sale. As they introduced real-time streaming video for live concert events, video and audio quality and reliability issues surfaced. It became apparent that the existing WAN infrastructure was no longer adequate to the task of supporting the always-on, always-connected generation. The network team initiated the search for a solution with the availability, performance, and resilience to keep up with their growth.
