3TIER ingests massive amounts of weather and climate data and our in-house numerical weather models create even more. Transforming all that data into accurate renewable energy assessments and forecasts is a major challenge. To focus on what we do best—building applications to extract insights from the data—we needed to reduce the burden of data management. Before our EMC Isilon solution, our team had to do everything from manual data migrations to mapping directory paths, which simply wasn’t sustainable for a business growing as quickly as ours. With EMC Isilon, everything is simple. We’ve eliminated Big Data management and storage headaches, freeing up resources to focus on the services that deliver real value to our clients.PAUL ENGLISH, DIRECTOR OF IT, 3TIER
