The challenge

As data grew, Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU) needed to reduce backup and recovery times in a legacy disk-to-tape backup environment.

The solution

The university deployed two Veritas NetBackup Appliances because of strong ratings from analysts and recommendations from other university IT teams.

The outcome

A 75% reduction in backup times, up to 90% reduction in recovery times, six-figure annual savings from deduplication, £20,000 savings from minimising tape use and 80% reduction in weekly backup administration time.
