Incredible Features was faced with a dilema, as higher quality digital cameras are making their way into the market, the file sizes they shoot at are growing at an incredible pace. Incredible Features was having to constantly buy external hard drives to store their digital shoots on, and then had to double these drives in order to have a working backup of their customers critical photos.
This presented a major problem when trying to manage these photos, as well as a nightmare to share across multiple workstations.

CompuTech Support Services performed a complimentary site survey and assessed the amount of storage currently used in their environment and took into consideration the amount of storage needed for future growth.
CompuTech Support Services installed an Apple Xserve attached to a Promise RAID giving them a large centralized storage system that could be accessed via a gigabit network from any of their workstations.
CompuTech Support Services installed an automated tape backup library to inexpensively backup all their photos for offsite storage as well as installed a new VPN/Firewall to allow secure remote access to their network when working abroad.
