NORCROSS, GA, January 26, 2015 /PressReleasePing/ - StorTrends(R) today announced
that Thomas, Judy & Tucker (TJ&T), a leading CPA firm in Raleigh, N.C., has deployed a
StorTrends high performance storage area network (SAN) to ensure application performance
and the protection of its financial and legal data, while adhering to its strict budgetary
requirements. Not wanting to sacrifice speed for cost, the new StorTrends SAN provides
TJ&T with the performance of solid-state disk (SSD) caching and SSD tiering, at the cost of
spinning disk.
The Certified Public Accounting firm of Thomas, Judy & Tucker was founded by Cliff Thomas,
Chris Judy and David Tucker. As a large local CPA firm, TJ&T has the capacity and the
capability to offer a myriad of services to its clients. Since 1990, TJ&T has been creating and
sustaining partnerships that deliver professional, reliable results. As a full-service accounting
firm, offering attestation, taxation, outsource accounting and business valuation/litigation
support, TJ&T is equipped to offer timely business, financial and tax services to a variety of
As part of their business operations, TJ&T creates a large volume of data. From PDF
documents of invoices and checks and volumes of financial documents to tax returns, time
and billing data to the Microsoft Exchange Server for 130 mailboxes, TJ&T found that its
storage requirements continued to grow. Even while its existing direct-attached storage (DAS)

solution that would deliver the high capacity they needed at speeds that would support the
demands of their business.

Not wanting to compromise on speed and capacity, TJ&T ruled out many of the solutions it
evaluated. Then they discovered StorTrends. StorTrends was able to offer the performance of
SSD caching and SSD tiering with the dense capacity of spinning disk drives, all for an
extremely reasonable price.
The results have even out-performed expectations. "I've looked at various metrics on our
VMware systems as well as on the StorTrends unit itself, and it's performing better than I
thought would be technically possible," said Drew Green, Director of Information Technology
for TJ&T. "I thought it would perform to our needs, but the numbers I've seen are better than
"For organizations like TJ&T, StorTrends high-performance storage solutions can deliver the
impressive performance and functionality that truly makes them more productive, with the high
capacity that will meet their business needs well into the future," said Justin Bagby, Director of
StorTrends. "The StorTrends IDATA performance analysis tool was also of high value to
TJ&T because it precisely analyzed their environment to assure that the StorTrends solution
they implemented exactly matched their needs."
It was the sum of the StorTrends solution and experience with the StorTrends sales and
support staff that further underscored the value TJ&T sees in StorTrends. "The couple of
instances that I've spoken with support have been phenomenal," added Green. "This has
been the best support experience I have ever had. Everything has exceeded expectations."
