Leading data centre and cloud service provider Proact has helped one of the world’s oldest vehicle manufacturers, Tatra, to resolve data backup challenges in its server environment. By introducing Proact’s fast and readily available solution, Tatra is eliminating downtime to drive higher productivity.
Tatra’s previous backup solution was highly complex and used technologies that did not integrate or work well together. In turn this drove up the cost of running the infrastructure and required more time to complete tasks. Acknowledging that a new backup model was needed to effectively underpin its servers, Tatra explored the market for a reliable partner to help simplify this environment.
Thanks to its vast experience with designing and implementing backup solutions, Proact was chosen for this project. Pavel Očkovič, who leads the Information Technology department at Tatra, has been satisfied with the solution since its introduction. "The quality of the solution has confirmed that we made the right decision in choosing Proact. The company’s specialists are amongst the best in their field and it’s great that we can rely on them.”
Proact’s solution, which is based on highly available architecture, met Tatra’s requirements for the server backup system to integrate well with existing infrastructure components. Leaving difficult and timely backup processes behind, the new solution runs seamlessly on leading virtualisation tools that are fast, easy-to-manage and save costs.
In addition to implementing the solution, Proact has provided training for employees to make the most of this powerful technology. Proact’s Professional Services also ensured that the transition to the new system caused as little disruption as possible.
Očkovič adds: “As to be expected, there were some difficulties during the implementation phases of the project, but these were resolved quickly and effectively as a result of Proact’s professionalism and knowledge.
“Choosing the most suitable technology doesn’t mean you're done; you have to select the right specialists who know how to use the technology and understand it. It’s undeniable that Proact has perfectly fulfilled that role for us."
Now the backup solution is in place, Tatra is achieving more granularity when recovering backups. For example, the team can easily recover a single deleted email. The vehicle manufacturer is also benefitting from automated backups through pre-defined scripts. These automation capabilities are not only improving efficiency, but allow IT resources to invest more time into strategic projects. The Proact solution can also scale in-line with the anticipated growth.
Vít Létavka, Managing Director at Proact in the Czech Republic, says: “It’s great to see that our solution is improving backup processes at Tatra. With vehicles known for their reliability and excellence, we’ve aligned our intelligent data management solution with these core values to create a model that can underpin the company well into the future.”
