Formed as the result of a merger of several separate NHS Trusts, our customer provides care to over 2.5 million patients in its London borough.

When the merger took place, each of the separate hospitals had been running their own backup and disaster recovery solutions. In total the Trust’s server infrastructure is over 1,000 servers and many petabytes of data.

Protecting vital NHS patient data is an especially important consideration, especially when operational costs, accelerated digitalisation and operating performance are three areas under close scrutiny at the moment.

The scale of the merger created a clear need to consolidate the disparate backup and disaster recovery platforms into one superior service capable of handling the large volume of sensitive patient data. As well as market leading technology, because of the sensitive nature of the data, the Trust needed to engage a UK based, experienced, well governed, expert services and support partner.


Having analysed all the pre-merger (legacy) solutions being used by the separate Trusts, our customer chose ORIIUM’s Commvault backup and disaster recovery due to its superior capabilities and flexibility to accommodate exponential data growth. ORIIUM’s Advanced Commvault Authorised Support team provides them with dependable high quality support when they need it most and data is replicated and protected leveraging ORIIUM’s native Commvault Cloud Store solution.


Having selected the ORIIUM and Commvault solution; the Trust’s crucial data is protected both locally and in the scalable, secure ORIIUM cloud for disaster recovery purposes.
