CHALLENGE Speeding up daily and weekly tape backups, as the recovery time for applications and systems upon loss of critical information used to take up to three days. SOLUTION The company compared different market options to find a solution that would quickly and efficiently backup and restore both virtual machines and files. Arcserve UDP was the go-to choice. BENEFITS Today, Arcserve UDP makes daily, weekly and monthly backups, as well as customized backups every three hours of the four servers that store the company’s 1TB of data with Standby VM and Cloud replication. There was a significant reduction in costs (approximately 70%) both in terms of disk space for storage and the number of personnel devoted to operation management. The backup time was reduced from hours to minutes and restoration time went from days to hours.
