Tupperware is the global leader in storage solutions because it has, for decades, helped its customers to simplify their home and kitchen storage complexity. In 2010, Tupperware turned to Visual Storage Intelligence® (VSI) service to simplify their data storage complexity. “One of our IT Infrastructure challenges was keeping track of our storage environment so that we can make smarter decisions about our current and future storage needs,” stated Bill Slaughter, Director, Storage Management. Managing storage across multiple data centers and storage arrays can indeed prove to be challenging. What made Tupperware’s situation more challenging was their time,resource, and financial constraints. “Like everyone else, we need to do more with less time, money and resources,” stated Mr. Slaughter.

They selected Visual Storage Intelligence® (VSI) because it enabled better storage decision-making. “We chose Visual Storage Intelligence® (VSI) because it is a low cost solution that requires no education or training and gives us the visibility we need without having to install or learn additional products.”In addition, the solution enabled Mr. Slaughter to “…get reports and charts that depict the status of our storage infrastructure, at any point in time,throughout our enterprise. It also summarized this information into a single executive report as well as tracked historical growth within each environment– which is an added bonus.”
