During the boom of the last few years the oil and gas business bought a lot of storage equipment. Zerowait has several oil and gas clients that use our NetApp ZPA legacy support, and some have supplemented their NetApp storage with our SimplStor equipment. Now, as the price of oil is declining company IT staffs are looking for efficiencies and easy ways to cut costs and to extend the life of their storage systems; all without affecting uptime or their quality of service. Zerowait has been supporting the NetApp storage of energy resource companies for over a decade and as their IT budgets get tight they know they can depend on Zerowait for our NetApp service and support and our SimplStor hardware for innovative, cost effective solutions for their big storage requirements.
The Geographic diversity of our Energy resources clients is pretty amazing. We are now working with Energy companies on their NetApp legacy storage support in Australia, Europe and North America. They all need high availability storage systems that are affordable to maintain and we expect this business niche to grow for us in 2015.
