NetApp‘s V3240 open storage controllers were selected by Evansville, Indiana’s computer services division for its primary data center, according to a company statement.

“Local government agencies in today’s IT environment are met with constant challenges, particularly being called on to do more with less,” said Regina Kunkle, NetApp vice president of state and local government and higher education.

“NetApp’s storage solutions are the first step in creating a network ecosystem where efficiency, performance, scalability, and cost effectiveness are central demands. We are dedicated to providing the City of Evansville with the best platforms and solutions to fit its needs today and for generations to come,” she added.

Technologies from VMware and NetApp were combined to increase disk utilization, reducing storage requirements by 60% at both primary and disaster recovery facilities.

According to the release, since launching its virtualization project, Evansville has reduced its 150 physical servers to 10 servers resulting in lower operating costs, a reduced physical footprint, and less IT management.

“We’ve freed up resources across the organization previously tasked with the day-to-day management and maintenance of a disparate IT infrastructure and standalone systems, said John Staples, site manager at Mark Rolley Consulting, Inc., for the City of Evansville.

“By doing so, our staff can function more as business leaders, and we can all provide better services to our citizens, which is ultimately what we’re here to do,” he added.
