With this, backing up data, a critical aspect of any data management strategy, has now become a daunting task, especially for businesses who still uses legacy systems as part of their backup strategies. With companies having to backup petabytes of customer data, traditional duplication methods will risk threatening the operations, security, and revenue of a company should critical failures and outages occur. The solution? The migration to a cloud storage infrastructure elevates the stress of data management and can address the increasing complexity and demands of businesses’ backup requirements.
We have seen CoreLogic, a property data provider in Australia, migrate forty years’ worth of databases onto the cloud and implement Commvault’s platform as a service to support its disaster recover strategy. With the migration, they managed to:
- Cut 92 per cent of data from daily backups with Commvault’s Deduplication Engine;
- Seamlessly shift workloads across offices, cloud providers, geographies, and even hypervisor and virtualization platforms on demand;
- Enhance visibility of data storage and ability to reliably recover quickly and completely;
- Improve cost savings;
- Retire tape systems by 2018, and;
- Reduce innovation cycle time to provide customers with superior experiences.
