Moving our 3D tomography images to the Nasuni/Azure platform has protected our capital budget from large and lengthy storage procurement requests every two to three years. We estimate we saved about $1.3 million in storage costs in the first year alone.

With traditional backup, if a file is lost or crashed or destroyed by a user we could only go back in time to the last night. Now we can go back one hour. We can beat the 24-hour recovery and get it down to half an hour or a max of one hour without any user impact.
