Success Story: Major Global Airline

  • Industry

  • Challenge

    The storage, management and limitations of their home directories presented a unique challenge for the airline. The IT team was looking for a solution that could handle the exponential growth of data in home directories and remove accessibility limitations end users had to those directories.

    The company wanted a streamlined approach to managing its home directories that is built for the future and could be managed on-premises, using corporate approved storage – all while giving end-users easy access to files and folders from their devices for sharing and collaboration. VPN access was counterproductive to this streamlined approach. Users wanted to be able to access files without using a VPN and IT wanted to ensure corporate security.

    Growth in home directories presented the IT teams with a few challenges, including the increasing cost to store the content, plus VPN-dependent access to the content, which sapped productivity.
