Challenges

The Red Hawk Casino network was hitting the limits of its performance, frequently seeing slow response times for transactions involving guests on the casino floor, leading to frustrated guests and the potential for shortened visits. In addition, one of the casino’s major initiatives was to deploy a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI), which adds significant performance, complexity and capacity demands on storage systems. Challenges included:

  • Ensure fast system response times for guests and employees.
  • Eliminate storage as a problem center for IT.
