American Suzuki is passionate about affordable performance both in their products and how they run the company. When business growth led to IT storage issues, they needed a solution. Backups took 18hrs; users had performance issues with file shares; and data replication took weeks. Using industry best practices with NetApp and F5's ARX Data Manager, 18 hour backups now are done in 90 minutes and users are no longer complaining about performance. David Gonsalves, Associate IT Director, explains how operations improved, money was saved by reducing the amount of backup tape needed and how their storage management is much more efficient with an ROI of less than 12 months.
