Indianapolis, Indiana, 04 April 2007 : Pinnacle Mapping Technologies, a company providing digital aerial photography, cartography, photogrammetry and 3D data for GIS applications, turned to Sirius Computer Solutions and Network Appliance, an IT solution provider, to develop a highly available solution that delivers on-demand storage capacity for their technology-rich, data-intensive business requirements.
“Our business seemed to grow overnight,” said Brenda King, president of PINNACLE. “Our sales increased ten times over, significantly increasing data storage requirements. We had a bottleneck we had to unplug.”
When PINNACLE originally started, it relied on film-based cameras. With the widespread adaptation of high resolution, mapping-grade digital cameras, PINNACLE’s project capacity and business volume took off, creating both opportunities and challenges. One of such challenges was PINNACLE’s storage capabilities that does not kept up with its business demands. Pinnacle searched for a new storage system and considered solutions from several vendors.
“Our projects are customized to meet the long-term needs of the client,” said King. “Sirius approached us in much the same way as we looked for a new storage system. Sirius considered the implications for the proposed solution looking at our requirements now as well as in five year to ten years.”
