$2.2 Million Savings on Network & Storage

Success stories


The Client

The end-user is an agency in the US Government with multiple locations that stores large amounts of proprietary data

The Challenges

The end-user was spending most of their budget on maintaining their existing infrastructure and was struggling to find a budget for some necessary capacity upgrades for their environment.

In addition, the management of their environment was becoming more complex due to their capacity issues, and a substantial portion of their infrastructure consisted of EMC Avamar appliances that had recently been deemed end-of-life by the OEM.

Faced with the need for additional capacity, and with their support end-date rapidly approaching, the end-user reached out to their OEM for advice.

The OEM’s US $2.5 million proposal was for the end-user to complete a full environment refresh consisting of hardware, support, installation services, and migration services to the new platform.

Since the end-user didn’t have the budget to purchase the refresh, they sought alternative proposals and arranged a meeting with the solution provider who promoted Procurri’s offering.

The Solution

The Procurri team worked closely with the end-user and solution provider to understand all aspects of their environment, provided free health checks on their infrastructure, and put together a comprehensive proposal that addressed all of the end-user’s needs for a total cost of US $300,000.

The proposal included a large refurbished Data Domain System (DD990 w/ 7 ES30-30 shelves) and Avamar node, installation services, environment recognition services to integrate the unit into their environment, and four-hour onsite support services for the DD system and all 40 of the end-user’s end-of-life Avamar nodes.

The end-user resolved all of their immediate capacity constraints and alleviated a significant portion of the environment’s administrative/ management burden whilst saving over US $2.2 million.

The results

  • Significant cost savings – $2.2 million & reduced future costs
  • Increased functionality – increased storage & back up options
  • Ease of management – due to increased capacity
