Carpenter Industries Moves to StorTrends by American Megatrends

Wednesday: June 29, 2016

NORCROSS, GA: American Megatrends, Inc. (AMI), a global leader in BIOS, remote management tools, network data storage products and unique solutions based on the Linux® and Android™ operating systems, is pleased to announce that Carpenter Industries in Concord, North Carolina has elected to switch from storage solutions from Dell to the StorTrends® brand from AMI for its primary storage needs and to deploy VDI, ERP and other applications.

After experiencing high latency and dealing with a failed controller on the unit and a limited service plan, Carpenter Industries IT Manager Donovan Yelton made the decision to switch to StorTrends. His decision was based primarily on American Megatrends’ reputation and longevity, as well as the great features and support that come standard with StorTrends. “We immediately saw latency decrease, thanks to the SSD caching ability of the StorTrends unit,” said Yelton.

“For organizations like Carpenter Industries, StorTrends high-performance storage delivers the exceptional performance and functionality necessary to optimize resources, boost productivity, and ensure data protection,” said Justin Bagby, Director of the StorTrends division of American Megatrends, Inc. (AMI). “What’s more, StorTrends provides the flexibility to grow any organization’s storage environment as needed, with the high capacity that will meet business and budget requirements well into the future—whether those call for all-flash, hybrid flash, or spinning disk.”
