Free up resources for strategic projects
Since implementing Commvault Complete™ Backup & Recovery in 2015, the Enterprise Platform team has seen the volume of data requiring protection triple to three petabytes. But with a validated design and expansion model in place, expanding the environment to meet the extra demand was straightforward.
The team put the solution’s scalability to the test from day one, backing up 1 petabyte of data in the first roll out. By using deduplication features, the University can compress this data, which comes from a variety of sources, including centralized file shares, databases, virtual machines, and physical servers. With the deduplication ratio hitting 90%, the solution is delivering significant cost savings.
A centralized approach means IT managers spend less time overseeing data protection and more time focusing on big-picture projects that will support the University’s growth.
Support from the Commvault’s Professional Services team and engineers has been critical to realizing these efficiency and cost savings. The team has helped with everything from scoping and sizing the solution to visiting the University to talk through upgrades and run health checks. With Commvault, the University of Melbourne can protect a significant volume and variety of data.
