A leading Ivy League university was using a tape-based data protection solution that had been in place for15 years. The equipment was expensive, data restores were slow, and backup and recovery processes consumed one and a half full-time equivalents (FTEs) for a three-person storage staff.


The school deployed Veritas NetBackup to store backups locally on a pair of third-party storage appliances, which then automatically replicate to Amazon S3 cloud storage from Amazon Web Services.


The transition dramatically cut costs, and storage staff were able to reduce by about one and a half full-time equivalents (FTEs) the time they must dedicate to backup and recovery.
