Keith Laycock and Simrat Sekhon are network systems engineers for the City of Redmond. They are responsible for managing the City’s networking and server
infrastructure and operations. “There were a lot of moving components in our previous environment,” explained Laycock. “We were using HPE servers, VMware
for virtualization, Brocade switches for the SAN traffic, and NetApp storage. Trying to maintain all of that disparate infrastructure was a nightmare.”
When it came time to refresh the aging infrastructure, Laycock and Sekhon were challenged by management to look for more innovative IT solutions. “NetApp maintenance is incredibly high once the systems are out of warranty,” explained Sekhon. “Plus, this was our third NetApp upgrade and we were ready to try something more efficient and leading-edge. We needed to find a product that would save us time, with the high performance and reliability needed to run the City’s applications and services.”
