Network-Enhancing Software and Improved Data Pathways Reduces Backup Times
Network-enhancing software and improved data pathways reduces backup times; improves recovery and security; and boosts network performance.
COMPANY: Law firm recognized as a leader in financial services and real estate mergers and acquisitions.
PROJECT: Data Center
The firm’s local-area network (LAN) platform was no longer able to meet its business needs. Backups were not meeting required recovery point objectives (RPOs) or recovery time objectives (RTOs).
iVision enhanced the firm’s existing Hitachi Unified Storage environment with CommVault IntelliSnap software, which enabled LAN-free backup every four hours, rather than once a day. In addition, iVision engineers channeled replicated backups to the firm’s disaster recovery site via a wide-area network that operated without data-path bottlenecks.
The firm was able to reduce the time needed for backups from days to hours, and in some cases minutes — all without taxing its local-area network. It gained security and functionality and benefited from improved network performance.
