As a result, Justin was able to decommission his SAN to rely entirely on ClearSky for storage, backup and disaster recovery (DR). The benefits are substantial.
“I’m not checking my backups every day or suffering from performance issues as a result,” Justin said. “Plus, previously we couldn’t back up everything because it would have cost a fortune and taken forever to complete. So I have that peace of mind knowing all of our data is protected.”
Justin now manages just a single, durable copy of Sandy’s data, which is available to end-users at flash performance, and he has significantly reduced the total cost of storage for the company.

Sandy is on the leading edge of a complete transformation of enterprise IT made possible by the rise of the edge. CIOs want to get out of the business of managing infrastructure, so they can devote more time and resources to the strategic projects that add value to the business. At ClearSky, we’re making it possible for companies like Sandy to decommission their storage infrastructure, stop babysitting backups and get rid of their offsite DR facilities. And we’re working with a wide array of partners — like Packet, Equinix, SBA Communications, MetroEDGE and the Kinetic Edge Alliance — to build out the edge ecosystem and broaden its capabilities.
The infrastructure independence transformation is just getting started.
