Case Studies

Amtico

For Amtico, a flooring company head quartered in Coventry, we deployed a solution consisting of asynchronously replicated NetApp FAS arrays, which leverage the SMB protocol for Windows file sharing and NFS for VMware vSphere.

Local and remote snapshots are used for the first tier of data protection which is complimented by Commvault backing-up to a NetApp E-Series SAN at each site for long term retention.

One Housing Group

For One Housing Group, a housing association headquartered in London, we deployed a single NetApp AFF which leverages the Fibre Channel and iSCSI protocols for VMware vSphere.

Local snapshots are used for a rapid first tier of backup and recovery, and Commvault is used for long term retention.

Waltham Forest College

For Waltham Forest College, a higher education establishment located in London, we deployed a solution consisting of asynchronously replicated NetApp FAS arrays, which leverage the SMB protocol for Windows file sharing and NFS for VMware vSphere.

Local and remote snapshots are used for the first tier of data protection and further backups are provided by Veeam.
