Driving success with futureproof storage and disaster recovery solutions
The storage environment at AutoBinck - one of the largest players in the European mobility market - was what it was. Everything worked, and at a decent rate, but it was no more impressive than that. The IT department at the company wanted to prove its worth, providing better services to the business.
In addition, AutoBinck was faced with challenges in the arenas of backup and disaster recovery. Backup windows often failed and due to the complexity of the existing environment, fixing problems was never an easy task.
Dynamic backups reducing the chance of data loss
Run time will never be endangered
Systems will always be available
AutoBinck wanted to adopt a future-proof, reliable and easy-to-manage storage and disaster recovery solution. The firm previously made backups on tape, which took a very long time and exceeded the set backup window. Furthermore, as a database-driven organisation, AutoBinck prefers to backup several times a day, reducing potential business risks.
Proact proposed a multi-protocol system that matched the wishes of AutoBinck, checking off its main demand of introducing more possibilities in the storage environment. This solution comprised of storage and disaster technologies from NetApp, combined with expert support 24/7 from Proact. Producing backups now takes no time at all and a number of tasks have now been automated, reducing administrative burdens.
We can always depend on a fast response from Proact.
