Case Study

The Company

Cloud backup Solution for a Government of India recognized star export house manufacturing high quality woven fabrics, home textiles in Tirupur.

Challenges they faced

Even though they used very reputable partners for tape handling, it always made them nervous when their data left their facilities.

The Solution

They backup their workloads locally using staging server which is automatically backed up to Azure cloud where they can be retained up to 99 years eliminating their needs for tapes. They used the Azure Backup Offline Seeding capability to copy their initial 1 TB of data to cloud. Thereafter, Azure Backup transfers only incremental data during daily backups, reducing storage consumption and need for huge bandwidth.

Why Azure

Having moved to Azure to reduce their IT and datacenter costs, the company started to look for an alternative to their tape backups which was proving both cumbersome and expensive. Now they know that their data is either on their premises or in the Azure cloud, which delivers greater peace of mind.

Benefits:

Putting backup in Azure also yields savings. Now they back up to a cheap bunch of disks rather than an expensive storage solution and don’t have to worry about managing space on expensive purpose-built backup storage systems. They have no tape costs, management costs, nothing. Backup is dramatically cheaper with Azure.

By implementing backup in the cloud, they were able to reallocate one full-time staff member to new projects. They have been able to transfer resources to new project work that makes the business more competitive. The cloud has allowed their staff to focus on activities that are more strategic in nature giving them confidence to consider moving other applications to the cloud. Proprietary and Confidential.

Summary

By using Azure Backup and getting better protection for business-critical workloads, greater peace of mind, lower costs, and an excited staff, the customer believes that these add up to a pretty good ROI.

Their market is always moving faster, and the cloud allows them to be more nimble and aggressive. Now they are no longer worrying about backup and other operational tasks.

The Company

The Idea was to collect data from all the branches and integrate them at the Head Office.

The Challenge

Crucial data is being transferred from the branches to the Head Office. Hence all its data must be transferred or stored securely.

The company wanted a high availability solution as the data transfer is crucial for its day to day decision making process. Since all the branches will be uploading data at regular intervals, simultaneous users at peak time will be huge.

The Solution

The company’s application server was shifted and co-located in ABTInfo.Net’s Data Center. Users were provided access to their respective application using a given username and password. Users can directly access the application from their respective location round the clock and with required speed. The peak hour load issues and network downtime has been eliminated.
