You’re a medium-size business, battling the effects of today’s gloomy economic climate. So how does an almost immediate cost saving of €20,000 sound? Or an instant 30 percent reduction in online storage volumes? Better still, how would you like all of this to be achieved with technology that pays for itself in the first year? That’s exactly the experience of Baat Accountants, a dynamic Netherlands-based accountancy practice. By standardizing on Symantec Enterprise Vault™, Baat is reaping the rewards of intelligent email and content archiving. By archiving one third of its online storage capacity, the firm has extended the life of its storage area network (SAN) by an additional two years and ensured no increase in storage capacity over the equivalent period—all while remaining totally transparent to end users.
