IT hardware suppliers are taking advantage of overworked customers to sell them storage they may not actually need, says a <a href=http://www.csf.co.uk/resources/itemResources/854/Storage_WP_v02b_pgs.pdf target="_blank">study</a> published by Quins main sponsor CSF, a leading supplier of enterprise information technology solutions.
The research found that 80% of IT directors admit to buying more storage as a quick fix, to avoid the pain of trying to get more from their current resources. However, 45% went on to blame their suppliers for this, saying the suppliers did not do enough to help them optimise their existing storage investments. That's where CSF differs - they recommend to "Stop Buying Storage!"
CSF exhibited at Storage Expo (an IT Storage Event) last month. CSF had one of the brightest, noisiest and busiest stands and with the help of some of the Quins players attracted a lot of attention. James Hayter and Jim Evans were there on the first day, with Tony Diprose and Luke Sherriff attending on the second.
As well as posing for photos and signing rugby balls (it's a hard life!), they also helped out on the CSF Test Your Strength Striker game. The downside of the day was having to endure four hours on the stand with CSF's Angels!
