Making Difficult NetApp Choices

Making difficult NetApp choices.Many are being forced to make difficult IT choices this year. Cutting spending and working with less are common themes I hear.

Renewing that expensive NetApp support agreement can be one of your difficult choices, but it doesn’t need to be. Zerowait cuts your NetApp spending by 50%, often more. Zerowait is not just far less expensive: we are NetApp experts. Zerowait has been supporting NetApp systems 24×7 for over two decades! Zerowait even provides remote monitoring and other administrative services that boost your productivity.

NetApp sales reps will pressure you into disruptive upgrades, telling you a filer has reached “End of Support”. Never feel pressured onto that expensive NetApp treadmill ever again. Many Zerowait customers have legacy NetApp systems serving critical workloads because they still get the job done. Why replace them now?!

We also have NetApp upgrades, expansion shelves and entire filers ready to go–always tested and guaranteed by Zerowait, at prices far less than buying that capacity or faster performance from NetApp.

These are just a few ways Zerowait can help. I’d welcome the chance to tell you more. Email sales@zerowait.com or call 1.888.811.0808 now because Zerowait is the partner you can trust. NetApp users have saved money with Zerowait for twenty-one years.

Custom Tailored Storage

SimplStor - Custom Made for You!For over two decades Zerowait has been providing expert NetApp support. After the Global Financial Panic some of our NetApp customers asked us to design an affordable, resilient, scalable storage alternative to NetApp. SimplStor grew from this, and our custom-tailored solutions surpassed everyone’s expectations.

Now the folks at Catalogic (long known for NDMP backup software for NetApp users) have partnered with us to create a storage platform for their first NDMP backup appliances: vSTor. Zerowait storage engineers worked closely with Catalogic to design three economical SimplStor configurations that met their product goals perfectly: There’s a 25TB model, a 50TB model, and a 100TB model.

Every SimplStor is custom tailored to meet your needs: capacity, performance, connectivity, and protocols. And SimplStor is supported by the storage experts at Zerowait, people who know NetApp and understand demanding network storage environments.

Let us build the perfect storage system for you.

Winning the Storage Challenge!

Winning the Storage ChallengeTo win the race series you need to deliver consistent performance, so skillful teams prepare for both the nuances of an individual track and specific weather conditions they’ll face. Similarly, after more than three decades in business, I have found that each customer’s situation is different. The stakes are high and meeting the unique needs of each customer – budget, capacity, performance and availability – is the reason so many companies have made Zerowait a part of their data storage team.

Thirty years ago, we focused on smaller accounts. Today we have customers large and small, with hundreds of systems and thousands of drives under Zerowait support contracts. Worldwide storage demand keeps growing, and our support keeps improving because we invest in the technologies to identify and manage storage anomalies sooner and that enables us to respond quicker.

Zerowait can be a valuable member of your storage team. What is your storage challenge in 2020? Let us show you how Zerowait can help.

Celebrating 30 years in business!

ExceptionalMultiple times I’ve been asked about the secret to Zerowait’s longevity. As you know, three decades is a really long time to do anything in the IT space. What we have done right at Zerowait evolved over time, but generally falls into three areas: proven technical experience, flexible approaches, and one clear unchanging goal – deliver excellent quality products and support at a substantially lower price.

When I started, I diligently researched customer requests and answered their questions thoughtfully and directly. Honest solutions for their problems at a lower price and no technical doubletalk. Eventually Zerowait customers took us into international opportunities, and we expanded our product portfolio and business systems even further to provide a range of storage solutions that were custom tailored to customer’s technical and budgetary needs. And we still do that today.

This month’s specials are in celebration of our 30th year in business.
