As part of a digital transformation initiative, CIMC is moving all key business applications to the cloud, a shift it started by deploying a cloud-based ERP system. The company needed fast and reliable data protection for both on-premises and cloud-based data, as well as cost-effective replication of backups between the locations.


The company rolled out a Veritas NetBackupTM Appliance in its corporate data center and a cloud-based instance of NetBackup using flexible Amazon Web Services (AWS) storage for short-term data retention. After two days, backups are transferred to Amazon S3 storage for longer-term retention. Replication between the data center and AWS provides disaster recovery.


CIMC turned to a solution from Veritas that replicates data between an on-premises appliance and Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud storage. The solution satisfies disaster recovery concerns, while significantly improving efficiency of data protection companywide.
