Youth Villages is a nonprofit organization that helps emotionally troubled children and their families live successfully. They chose a Windows Server 2016 solution with DataON servers that is compliant with the WSSD program to replace an overextended, expensive storage area network. With a solution that takes full advantage of Storage Spaces Direct, Youth Villages slashed its storage costs in half and multiplied storage performance by a factor of 30.
“With our new Storage Spaces Direct solution, we have reduced storage costs by $150,000. Making smart technology decisions lets us spend more in areas that directly impact our children, families, and your people, such as hiring more staff and improving residential campuses,” said Cliff Reyle, Chief Human Resources and Information Officer at Youth Villages. “Our new storage solution has greatly improved productivity and alleviated employee frustration… our employees [can] focus on what they do best: helping troubled youth.”
