CMR's various offerings include 14 different modules offering channel services such as rebate tracking, deal registration, and commission calculation. "We have to keep everything running day and night," said Dan Davidson, development manager at CMR. "Obviously, you want these tools to be available 24 hours a day. lf people cannot register new deals, people cannot make their money."
Buffalo Terastation NAS (Network attached storage) products, in addition to the use of fallback servers, are central solutions in their 24/7 strategy. In an environment where backup and recovery plays a critical role in ensuring 24-hour availability, CMR turned to TeraStation storage for daily backups and server images, and to provide long-term archival storage for its production environment.
