C&IT director featured in Symantec's CIO Digest

November 13, 2012

Robert Hogle, Wayne State University C&IT's director of computer operations support, was recently interviewed for a feature article in Symantec's October 2012 issue of CIO Digest, a quarterly publication containing strategies and analysis for senior IT leaders around the world. In the article and accompanying videos, Hogle discusses C&IT's current effort to consolidate systems in Wayne State's data center. The project leverages both server virtualization and updates to WSU's data backup and recovery system to reduce costs and improve efficiencies. Hogle anticipates that Symantec's NetBackup hardware and software will provide a tenfold reduction in duplicated data, putting the brakes on the impact from data storage growth. Additionally, restorations of large data files will be much faster - what sometimes took days will be reduced to minutes.
