New Case Study: Dell Services Federal Government

​For any Microsoft SharePoint deployment, adoption is both a goal and a key component. You’ve invested in the software and you know the value it can bring to your business, but it’s only worthwhile if employees are actually using it. SharePoint took off in a big way at Dell Services Federal Government, a subsidiary of Dell Inc. that provides information technology, business process outsourcing, and consulting services to defense, intelligence, national security, and civil government markets. The platform is used by 3,500 SharePoint end-users, consisting of 2,000 employees; 500 sub-contractors, consultants, and partners; and 1,000 clients who access the sites to receive deliverables, reports, and other information.

With this widespread usage, however, came an influx of data – four terabytes (TB) of it – on the Dell Services Federal Government’s content database. And that abundance of data caused serious performance issues. In order to solve its storage challenges without having to purchase additional, costly Microsoft SQL Servers, the company turned to AvePoint.

By implementing DocAve Storage Manager, Dell Services Federal Government was able to:

· Optimize SharePoint environment by reducing the data on its SharePoint content database by 88 percent, from approximately 4 TB to 500 gigabytes (GB)
· Save approximately $25,000 in hardware expenses by automatically moving SharePoint data onto less expensive storage devices according to business rules
· Perform full content database backups in less than one hour, 83% faster than the six hours required before storage was optimized
