  36. 36. Customer Successes<br />Nichols College <br />“Disaster recovery solutions can be very complex ... PlateSpin Forge is very straightforward. There’s just one piece of hardware to manage. It’s low maintenance, and has low overhead. Without it, we certainly would have spent more money on another disaster recovery solution that would have required more resources to support it.”<br />http://www.novell.com/success/nichols_college.html<br />Reed Smith LLP<br />"With PlateSpin Protect, we can recover multiple sites with the same set of hardware quite easily, in a matter of minutes."<br />http://www.novell.com/success/reed_smith.html<br />
