Woodard & Curran Case Study

Woodard & Curran Case Study

Woodard & Curran had dual NetApps at each location using SnapMirror to replicate to another site. To assist with the replication, they used Riverbed WAN Acceleration plus MPLS. Woodard replaced all of this legacy infrastructure by moving all of its unstructured data to the cloud and caching active data on a Panzura device at each of its 20 offices. Woodard & Curran saved $225K per year on MPLS alone while doubling the bandwidth, as well as another $10K per office per year by not upgrading their NetApp, SnapMirror, and Riverbed.

Breaking Collaboration Silos - Dowco Case Study

Dowco Case Study

“We use a follow-the-sun model for production that helps us stay competitive. It’s one of the reasons we have high speed network links between our offices,” said Ron Cuthbert, General Manager at Dowco. But, users had to work on local copies of Tekla Structures project files during their work hours, then transfer large files daily between locations. Dowco had already invested in highend CAD workstations, fast networks, and a significant amount of storage to support this workflow, but issues still arose.
