Musanada was using an older version of Veritas NetBackup™. Based on a long history with the solution, the team was highly confident in NetBackup’s ability to protect critical data, but they wanted to increase efficiency in their data protection processes. Some backups were failing to complete within the backup window, and staff were having to manage a second data protection solution for one portion of the company’s infrastructure.
The organization transitioned to a Veritas NetBackup Appliance in its main data center and worked with Veritas and IT consulting firm MDS UAE to optimize the solution. Now, Musanada is considering tying in NetBackup virtual machines (VMs) to protect cloud-based data and rolling out the Veritas Resiliency Platform.
The small IT team has streamlined data protection, through automation and use of the more intuitive user interface (UI), as well as by offloading database backups to the organization’s database administrators (DBAs). In addition, all backups are now completing within the backup window, and data restores are 66% faster. The appliance’s 99% deduplication and other drivers of efficiency are generating 300,000 AED (approximately US$82,000) in cost savings.
