Fishing for a Storage Solution?

 

Fishing for a Storage Solution 

Last month we were in the Florida Keys fishing for Yellow Tail (a kind of Snapper) and as we were reeling them in the Bull Sharks and Barracudas were chomping off their portion of the fresh catch. Fortunately, they were really biting, and we could afford to lose some of our haul. Plus it was exciting to see. Better yet, filleted and grilled that evening they were delicious. It was a great trip made even better because we had the right captain, equipment, bait, and location to maximize our enjoyment and fishing.

We’ve all experienced the sharks and barracudas in the storage marketplace. Don’t settle for half a fish! With Zerowait’s help to maximize your investment, you can catch your limit of great storage every day.

Zerowait’s NetApp Support is a Winner!

 

Zerowait's NetApp Support is a Winner!

To win in the racing business, you need reliable equipment and a great support team. 20 years ago, when NetApp was focused on departmental storage and smaller customers to build their business, they had the best support team in storage. Over the years, as their focus shifted to Enterprise and Global accounts, NetApp reduced its field service engineering headcount and their customers started calling Zerowait for support of their Filers. Storage support and optimization is like winning races, both require the edge provided by experienced engineers, and Zerowait’s support team has been working with NetApp equipment for 20 years.

Our dedicated service and support team is recognized as the best in the business. Whether you are looking for outstanding support, transferable licensed systems, or help with a custom-tailored storage solution Zerowait has the answer and technical support to help you win your race.

Choosing the Right Storage Track

 

Hello,

Accidents happen. Data Breaches happen. Putting data storage on the Cloud doesn’t help. For all the hype by Dell/EMC, NetApp and others to send you down the Cloud Track, “out there” is still risky. And no one wants to talk about the associated bandwidth or restoration costs. If you are burdened with regulatory and insurance compliance issues, it’s a non-starter. That’s why many customers I talk to are not quite ready to let go of their on-premise storage and want to make what they have last a long time. Or, if they need to upgrade, they don’t want to be forced down the Cloud Track. Here are three ways Zerowait can help.

Zerowait provides EOL support for NetApp filers!ONE — Zerowait Parts Assurance (ZPA) is already a great deal, but this month when ordering, mention “RETURN, and get No Return Disks FREE!
