Customer

Pete Lien & Sons engages in limestone mining, offering rock, concrete, lime and pulverized limestone, sandstone, gypsum, iron ore, sand, and gravel for constructing roads, dams, homes, schools, churches, grocery stores, and banks.

Challenge

Pete Lien & Sons’ existing storage and server cluster had been in place for five years and was reaching end of life. Performance was suffering and it was prone to failure. The company wanted to find an affordable solution that could scale with the company.
