Media Giant Speeds Cross-Office Collaboration and Reduces Data Protection Costs with Nasuni

Meredith Corporation shifts away from on-premise infrastructure to cloud file storage

Meredith Corporation is one of America’s largest media companies and home of leading brands like People, Better Homes & Gardens, InStyle, and All Recipes. Founded in Des Moines, Iowa, in 1902 Meredith has its finger on the pulse of pop culture, entertainment, food, fashion, lifestyle, finance, and sports. The company reaches 185 million Americans each month – including a broadcast television reach of 11% of U.S. television households. In 2018, Meredith Corporation purchased storied Time, Inc., along with its well-known titles, and quickly set about integrating the media conglomerate’s employees. At an IT level, the first challenge was New York City: Director of Enterprise Infrastructure Dave Coffman was tasked with migrating 800 users out of Meredith’s offices on 3rd Avenue and into Time’s HQ downtown. And he needed to do it in just three months. The company evaluated several cloud file sharing and collaboration solutions, but decided they were too complex and expensive. With the pressure on to move the former Time users to their new location and accelerate collaboration between offices, Coffman turned to Nasuni.
