“Capturing, sharing, and storing data is key to delivering seamless and responsive services,” says Stefan Hellweger, Head of IT for the agency. “We need to ensure the integrity and availability of operational information even when our teams are working in emergency situations.”
In 2019, the agency replaced multiple backup solutions with a scalable data management platform founded on six Commvault HyperScale™ Appliances and Commvault Complete™️ Backup & Recovery. The simple licensing model and competitive total cost of ownership were key factors in selecting Commvault over other vendors, such as Rubrik, and incumbent solutions from Veeam and Veritas.
Optimize backup efficiency and capacity
A compression and deduplication rate of 62 percent have transformed data management. “With Commvault, we have reduced the time taken to run a full backup from two days to seven hours,” explains Hellweger. “The archive process is also more efficient, which will save us around half a day a week.”
The mobile Commvault HyperScale™ appliance means data can be backed up from remote devices being used as part of long-term rescue efforts. “We need to have a record of the actions taken. With the mobile appliance, we can safeguard against data loss with automated and centralized backups,” adds Hellweger.
By using Commvault technology to protect critical datasets, such as rescue mission reports and meteorological information for weather pattern analysis, the agency can safeguard citizens and visitors across the South Tyrol. The retention policies for these assets and other administrative information can be automated to optimize storage capacity.
