Case Study: The China Navigation Company (CNCo) Deploys Acronis Backup on its Fleet

Acronis®, a global leader in new generation data protection, today announced that The China Navigation Company Limited (CNCo) has deployed Acronis Backup on its fleet of deep sea vessels.

CNCo has deployed Acronis Backup & Recovery with Universal Restore software on 29 vessels, covering over 150 servers and workstations. Each vessel has a computer network consisting of a Windows®-based server and a number of client workstations responsible for the overall systems operation, data collection and staff management.

Backups are stored on a local disk partition and on network attached storage devices, which would allow the server to be restored within minutes even on dissimilar hardware.

Acronis Backup software is installed on the server and client workstations. Previously backup had to be triggered manually from each workstation. Now the new system allows management of all backups from the server.

Benefits are:
  • For mission-critical system, failure of which may leave the ship stranded at sea.
  • Ability to quickly recover data and systems if needed without the need for on-shore technical support.
