Safeguarding both remote and on-premises data
Headquartered in Belgrade, Serbia’s Ministry of Environmental Protection is leading the
way for public sector organizations to meet the government’s 2020 initiative of
digitalizing citizen services. “We need to be ready to protect an increasing volume of
data and keep citizen services highly available,” says Vladan Kojanić, Head of the IT
Administration, Ministry of Environmental Protection.
With more than 330 employees spread across 22 locations, the IT team needs to be able to
support a variety of operating systems and facilitate field workers’ remote backups
over the public network. “Our datacenter in Belgrade must be able to support secure
file sharing between a host of different devices across the country. We need to ensure
departments can share information without compromising on security if a device is lost or
stolen,” comments Kojanić.
With Commvault, the organization can protect its data and safeguard services. It has also
increased efficiency as system administrators can now manage restores remotely from a
central console rather than having to travel to site, and each employee can do data restore
themselves without the involvement of IT staff.
Centralized solution ensures data remains highly accessible
The Ministry’s previous backup environment comprised Veeam, BackupExec, and Acronis
solutions, which were complex and time-consuming to manage. The team turned to IT partner
Fractal Dimension to help it select and deploy a single solution that could simplify
protection for its disparate environment.
After analyzing its requirements, Fractal Dimension suggested Commvault Complete™️
Backup & Recovery as a cost-effective, comprehensive, and flexible data management
solution. “Fractal Dimension demonstrated that the Commvault solution would suit our
needs and reduce ongoing management costs,” recalls Kojanić.
Working closely with Commvault and Fractal Dimension, the Ministry of Environmental
Protection completed the implementation in just six weeks.
With Commvault, the Ministry now has a central platform for data backup and management that
can be customized to suit current and future requirements. The user-friendly solution was
quick and easy to set up, integrates seamlessly and offers comprehensive data protection.
“No competing solution on the market offers the same level of organic
integration,” comments Kojanić.
