Presentation Overview   


Data growth is a common theme being experienced by organizations across all industries. Storage capacity is being stretched like never before and simply adding more disks is no longer sufficient. A comprehensive storage strategy is required to ensure performance and growth expectations are met, while at the same time managing ballooning costs for data. Directors and CIO's require that the solution being selected will last and have the confidence that corporate data will not be lost.   


Cameco, like many organizations, has experienced this exact scenario. In 2011, Cameco enlisted the help of ESTi to replace and migrate the legacy storage infrastructure to support Cameco's evolution and dependence on IT for business critical services
