The Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) solutions were completed while NetServices was still in the SBA 8(a) program. As a key 8(a) company and partner to Lockheed Martin, NetServices provided a new Active Directory 2003 Forest and Exchange 2003 environment to sustain AFPCA’s primary information systems. Utilizing Hierarchical Storage Management (HSM), we dynamically assigned data to different tiers of storage in a backup solution that supported the new AD/Exchange environment. NetServices provided a “physical to virtual” server consolidation of AFPCA Microsoft Exchange, SQL and Active Directory services to blade server-based virtual environment. As a result, HSM has enabled the organization to increase the amount of storage available within a tight budget by ensuring that the most accessed data is located on the most valuable storage and least accessed data is safely stored on secondary systems.
