DOES IT SEEM TOO PAINFUL to go through the process of untangling the twisted cables of legacy backup solutions? The time required to migrate data, the cost of new hardware, and learning curves for new software are all barriers on the journey to modern data protection. However, new technologies such as cloud, automation, and analytics have upped the ante for investing in a new data protection solution. A solution architected to exploit cloud, replication, virtualization, and analytics is quickly becoming the baseline for modern data protection.
In the world of backup and data protection some of the top modernization benefits companies want to achieve include:
Automated software currency
Achieving these modernization milestones delivers efficiency and cost savings benefits. Read more about these benefits in the Customer Solution overview below.
CUSTOMER SOLUTION OVERVIEW: MULTINATIONAL AEROSPACE AND TRANSPORTATION COMPANY
Aging infrastructure was negatively impacting the performance of the backup environment of this multinational company. The legacy tape system was creating performance issues and the IT staff were taxed to keep up with multiple backup solutions, long archive requirements, a growing data foot print, and strict regulatory compliance. The company required a hybrid design that would support on-premises backup for the data center and remote locations. They additionally required the option for both private and public cloud based backup for a portion of their locations.
THE RESULTS WITH COMPASS
- CapEx reduction of 50% and OpEx of 30%
- Enterprise data protection workloads delivered in the IBM Cloud
- Elimination of tape
- Eliminated EMC software (Networker) and hardware (Data Domain)
- Single management interface
- Automation speeds deployment and drives efficiency
- Analytics delivers better performance and customer insights
