Case Study: County Government Emergency Communications

County Government Ensures High Availability for Next-Gen 911 Services with SimpliVity

The emergency communications center for a large U.S. county replaced its legacy Dell IT implementation with SimpliVity hyperconverged infrastructure. The center’s disjointed IT environment—a collection of stand-alone servers and storage platforms deployed in a single data center—was becoming increasingly expensive, complex and risky to operate and scale. After investigating a number of next-generation options including solutions from Nutanix and EMC, the County’s IT Director selected SimpliVity hyperconverged infrastructure to improve the reliability, economics and agility of the region’s critical emergency communications infrastructure.
