“Super easy to setup and support was great.”

COMPANY

Griffco Partners is a large format print shop and the largest vehicle wrap shop in the state of Utah with 10 years of experience in printing industry. The company does a lot of temporary point of purchase signage. The Griffco Graphic Solutions started out as an inflatable rental company and moved to printing about 7 years ago.

PROBLEM

The company was using a Synology based SAN as its primary storage solution. However, the performance of the Synology did not allow the Griffco Graphic Solutions to meet its backup RPO. In addition, the company did not want to invest into a higher end SAN device. Thus, the company was looking for a cost-efficient solution that would meet all their requirements.

SOLUTION

Griffco Partners decided to move to a hyperconverged setup with StarWind Virtual SAN because it met all its requirements and was a good value for the price. The company went with all flash in their StarWind storage solution thereby being able to greatly exceed their backup RPO due to the increased performance.

Using StarWind Virtual SAN, the company managed to easily build a 3 node Hyper-V cluster that works flawlessly and meets all its requirements exceeding the backup RPO.

“Super easy to setup and support was great,” Nick Wallace.
