Freedom from Legacy Challenges

Proactive problem resolution via analytics and automation

BUSINESSES SPEND BILLIONS each year on backup solutions that eventually age out and need to be replaced. Administrators who have managed a backup solution can attest to the headache that results. Aging hardware begins to experience failures, backup volumes begin to exceed the storage capacity and backup windows available, and archive data on tape media must be migrated to new storage before the old tape drive can be decommissioned.

In the world of backup and data protection some of the top modernization goals companies are striving to achieve include:

Reliable

Reliable backup job completion

Painless

Painless database
re-orgs

Improved

Improved restore performance

Migration

Migration away from proprietary technologies

Evict

Evict multiple backup products

Oust

Oust old software versions

CUSTOMER SOLUTION OVERVIEW: INTERNATIONAL APPLIANCE MANUFACTURER

ELIMINATE CRITICAL PROBLEMS

THE CHALLENGE

Prior to deploying Compass, this manufacturing company was averaging 3-4 critical problems per month. Some of these took more than a year to resolve. Since deploying Compass, the world-wide enterprise has experienced ZERO critical situation in that last 27 months.

The Results with Compass

  • Reliable performance
  • 99.9% backup success rate
  • All code is continuously kept current
  • All security and fix patches are promptly applied
  • The data protection landscape is continuously monitored
  • Alerts and notifications are issued for all incidents
  • Analytics driven proactive problem resolution

Analytics and Automation Drive Success

Compass solves technology challenges with technology. Analytics-driven proactive problem resolution coupled with high levels of automation eliminates the majority of backup issues before they even occur. The monitoring and alert system that can be integrated with standard corporate tools (i.e. Remedy, ServiceNow) ensures that administrators will be notified of any events that require their attention. The unified management console allows an enterprise level view of the health of data protection with the option to drill down on any location or system.

We are in the business of supporting public services, and it is critical that we are great stewards of the information that is necessary to carry out our mission. [Cobalt Iron] helps us in that regard by significantly simplifying and improving the operation of data protection while also conforming to the Ingeus commissioner’s requirements.

— David McPherson, Global Head of Infrastructure, Ingeus
