Greene County Eases Cloud Transition & Simplifies Infrastructure with Nasuni
The IT leaders for the State of Ohio’s Greene County were preparing for an upcoming NAS storage renewal when they decided it was finally time for a change. Traditionally, they would buy hardware for the county’s locations on five-year deals. Greene County Network operations Manager Ryan Lloyd and his team had been considering shifting to cloud applications across the board, and while the idea of moving critical file workloads to the cloud was slightly nerve wracking, the upside was too appealing to ignore.
“We started to look at what would really make sense in terms of how we spent our money,” Lloyd explains. “Nasuni came up as a possibility, and we realized it made sense in terms of the technology, the budgetary flexibility, and the comfort in knowing we wouldn’t have to worry about disaster recovery anymore.” Lloyd says.
The Greene County IT team sees Nasuni as a foundational piece of what will become a larger portfolio of cloud services and apps. Lloyd likes the flexibility of the platform design, and the idea that the county could eventually add new services, such as Access Anywhere, as the need arises.
