Dot Hill's SANnet Keeps Ad Agency Creative, Productive

6/12/2002 - In a partnership with Dutch reseller PDF, Dot Hill Europe B.V. implemented a storage area network (SAN) for advertising agency and J. Walter Thompson affiliate, PPGH. The installation was made in the Apple Macintosh environment, which is widely used by creative entities, such as advertising agencies, worldwide. "Deadlines can make or break you in the advertising business, so we can't afford any downtime due to IT issues," said Joep Steenman, IT manager for PPGH/JWT. "Dot Hill and PDF extensively tested our SAN solution in the lab and then in our offices before taking it into production. We've had optimum productivity and full availability to our data since the SAN was installed." PPGH/JWT is using its SAN with Appleshare IP, software that provides a powerful yet simple way to communicate and exchange information using file, print, mail and web services, along with Canto Cumulus software that organizes and publishes any digital file such as images, layouts, presentations, video, audio or text. The agency's creative staff continually accesses the image database while developing advertising campaigns for its clients.
