Optimising an 194TB data backup problem

Softcat approached ORIIUM looking for technical expertise in helping to design and implement a new Commvault solution for their busy international customer

The Problem

The client – an international law firm

With a data estate totalling 194TBs spread across a vast disparate estate of physical machines, the client urgently needed a solution capable of addressing their complex data protection requirements.

Through their relationship with Softcat, they needed a specialist partner who could help design and implement the solution that would transition their physical infrastructure estate to that of a virtual one, and migrate their data protection platform into Commvault’s complete backup and recovery suite.

Reduced Backup Window

The daily backup window from the previous solution was reduced from 5 days to just under 6 hours

Optimised Infrastructure

Transition of servers to a new virtual environment resulted in greater platform efficiency

Reduced Management Cost

Streamlining their design helped reduce platform management and support overheads

The Solution

ORIIUM provided Softcat’s client with a complete wrap of technical expertise that included a consultancy-based engagement to help architect a new Commvault-based backup solution as well as carrying out a physical transition of existing data and policies from their old service into their new virtualised platform.

Further assisting the customer with their on-going operation of their backup solution, ORIIUM provide on-going Commvault CASP support around the clock 24/7 to help support the customer as they continue to grow both their business and their data.
