Would this fit in with the CSR? It sure does make make a lot of difference.
Catholic Charities' outmoded, hand-me-down tower and rack servers were difficult to manage, had almost no power redundancy and were totally power inefficient, said Eric Johnson, Catholic Charities IT project manager.
Never mind the cooling, because there was none. Unless you count opening windows and using oscillating floor fans on the high setting to circulate the air.
With network servers at only the largest sites but also with employees scattered at the organization's 40 locations, employees didn't have access to files stored at the Hub site. There was an urgent need to centralize IT operations and provide consistent access on a highly available system.
The IT staff had no experience with a storage area network (SAN), so all data was previously stored separately on individual servers, only complicating disaster recovery measures. With the addition of a SAN, new blade servers and a uniform infrastructure, Catholic Charities can now make good on the disaster recovery mandates of its state contracts.
