Competitor Group Doubles Storage Performance with Datrium & VPLS

Competitor Group Inc (CGI), a leading sports media company and the company behind global event brands like the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series, doubled storage performance and shrunk storage requirements by 80% through compression and deduplication with a storage system from Datrium and VPLS Solutions.  CGI reached out to trusted technology partner, VPLS Solutions, for a full assessment of and recommendations on the company’s infrastructure. Based on current infrastructure, existing blade server environment and extensive use of VMWare, VPLS Solutions recommended Datrium as the innovative, cost-effective fit to meet the CGI’s needs now and in the future. CGI found Datrium’s performance, capacity, efficiency and VM-centric management in vCenter a superior alternative. 

“At CGI, our focus on the active lifestyle means we are keenly aware of the importance of performance— both with our athletes as well as with our business. When our partners at VPLS Solutions showed us that Datrium was effectively running laps around our current HPE system, we knew we had a winner for our vSphere environment.” – Bobby Phimmasane, Director of Information Technology
