Community association management company Associa required a significant data storage management overhaul to keep up with years of expansion and a move to a virtual server environment. Associa switched to Pillar Data storage, relying on its thin provisioning and quality of service to manage and monitor storage for more than 250 virtual servers and thousands of Exchange users.
Jon Krueger, Associa's director of IT infrastructure, said he switched from EMC Clariion SANs to Pillar's Axiom 600 Fibre Channel (FC) system last year to keep up with up to 30% storage growth per year.
Dallas-based Associa supports home owner associations that want to outsource services such as maintenance and financial management. Krueger said Associa has acquired more than 60 member companies over the last 15 years, putting it in a constant expansion mode.
