Stennis Space Center

Introduction

This case study of ASRC Federal, Stennis Space Center, MS is based on a December 2015 survey of DataCore customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service.

“DataCore SANsymphony not only provided Stennis Data Center the virtualization of our SAN, but also provided the capability to mirror our SAN environment. That alone has protected out critical applications from unplanned outages. The Engineering and Test Directorate at Stennis Space Center is currently testing the new rocket engines for the Space Launch System, and a system outage could have scrubbed a test, costing millions of dollars to reschedule. DataCore has been extremely important in ensuring the Stennis Data Center services are high performing and highly available.”
