What do you get if you mix remote sites, VM-only protection that isn’t meeting your needs and a highly regulated industry, with a new Data Protector roll-out? A centralized, modernized and compliant backup strategy.

With data expansion occurring across five remote sites, they needed to consolidate their backup approach with their headquarters’ strategy to ensure high availability, disaster recovery, and full regulation compliance.

Infrastructure Systems Engineer at Almac Group, Darren O’Neill, states, “In a 24/7 operation like Almac, with many live production systems, it is vital that we streamline and secure our backup processes. We have successfully achieved the transition to Data Protector while meeting all regulatory and compliance requirements.”

With the decision to replace their VM-only protection solutions at the remote sites and consolidate with the head office Data Protection deployment, Almac was able to achieve:

  • 50% faster backup completion with 2x higher data volume
  • Capital cost savings due to minimal infrastructure footprint
  • Full disaster recovery capability across all sites
  • Simplified management with centralized and standardized model
