Challenges

Like any software-as-a-service business, Cornerstone has to deliver ultra-high reliability to its customers, and its contracts specify strict service-level agreements (SLAs) that can result in heavy penalties if those promises are not kept.

  • The company must meet stringent client SLAs for application availability.
  • Storage software upgrades must be done without disrupting client service.
  • The company needs seamless storage maintenance and life cycle management and a flexible approach to managing data growth and security.
