Canadian Cancer Society, Ontario Division, has deployed Riverbed Technology's Steelhead WDS appliances to consolidate its IT resources for data protection.
The society has two national offices (Toronto and Ottawa), 10 provincial and territorial divisions and more than 600 community locations. Currently, the Ontario division has more than 70,000 volunteers who work with approximately 470 dedicated staff members.
The San Francisco-based Riverbed said the society has deployed 13 Riverbed Steelhead appliances as well as its Central Management Console to manage Steelhead appliances from a central location. By the first quarter of 2008, the society will add a Steelhead appliance in all 27 of its remaining offices, and install a storage area network at the central location, according to the company.
