SCHOHARIE CENTRAL SCHOOLS
SCS was facing expansion of its storage and server environment when it began to outgrow its backup solution. David Holmes, Network and Systems Technician, was in the process of migrating to an updated storage solution to address the issues SCS was having with data protection. "We were going to end up having to either select a tape library solution – tape has always sucked – I just could not see spending the money on the number of tapes we would have needed to do the job, so I started looking at disk-to-disk solutions," Holmes said. Holmes first looked into Barracuda Networks. A serious drawback was the Barracuda licensing model, which involved a variable recurring monthly cost depending on the amount of data backed up. Having a low budget, this was too risky of an option. "We’re a small school district with a very minimal hardware budget," Holmes said.
