Pillar Data Systems-Temple University Health System

The Temple University Health System was facing three storage-related challenges. The first was that their current system was expensive to maintain and expand. There were also numerous hidden costs and high fees. They needed to find a more cost-effective solution. Second, Temple needed a storage system that would offer both immediate and archive file storage, capabilities their existing system did not possess. Finally, Temple's backup system was insufficient to meet the organization's disaster recovery requirements, which in part led to the search for a better solution.
