Storing Files in the Cloud: Strategic, Tactical or Optional?
Customer Story
As one of the largest private companies in the U.S., Wegmans delivered annual sales of $9.2B in 2018. The company hasn’t experienced this kind of success by resisting innovation. So when the IT department at Wegmans realized that the cost of maintaining its traditional file storage and data protection infrastructure was climbing too high, the company looked for a cloud alternative. Join this session to hear first-hand how Wegmans has leveraged the cloud to eliminate the high costs and cumbersome maintenance of its former file storage and backup solution.
