F5 Webinar Helps IT Professionals in Architectural Firms Build Smarter Storage Strategies

Proven solution for managing growth of architectural file data cuts costs, reduces user disruption, and improves efficiency of high value employees

F5 Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: FFIV) will host a webinar entitled ‘Build a Smarter Storage Strategy to Simplify Data Management and Reduce Costs’ on Thursday, March 4. The webinar is directed at IT professionals of architectural firms who, like their counterparts in every industry, are struggling to deal with rampant storage growth rates that can run as high as 120 percent annually. That kind of growth can lead to runaway costs, lengthy backups, and difficult data migrations. For architectural firms in particular, the large, resource-intensive 2D and 3D files generated by the computer-aided design and image manipulation software can push storage capacity to the limits. Often, the IT staff is forced to move files from one share to another, causing downtime and disrupting users’ workflow.

In this webinar, review actual results of several live implementations to discover how leading architectural firms worldwide are using F5® ARX® solutions to:

  • Reduce storage costs by 50% or more
  • Cut migration times by up to 90%
  • Shrink backup times and costs by up to 80%
  • Reclaim valuable primary disk capacity
  • Automate data management tasks to free up IT resources
  • Eliminate downtime and user disruptions
