The Challenge

Fast-growing Hubei Unicom needed to streamline data protection of three petabytes and speed up potential recovery of a critical database.

The Solution

The company worked with Veritas Consulting Services to design and deploy a custom-built Veritas NetBackup server networked with NetBackup appliances in each of its three data centers.

The Outcome

4x faster recoveries of a key database, reduced exposure to potential losses, millions in savings from deduplication, and 100 percent payback the first time the database needs to be recovered.
