Revolutionizing backup and recovery for a virtualized infrastructure
Established in 1995, Sony Network Communications is a Japanese Internet service provider
(ISP) operating under the brand names ‘So-net’ and ‘PostPet™’.
It recently expanded to provide a range of B2B and B2C telecommunication services, and
embraced new trends in technology, such as IoT.
As an ISP, Sony Network Communications stores a wide range of data, including user
credentials, email messages, billing information, support requests, and system logs, across
2,000 VMware virtual machines. To ensure stable and resilient services, the company must
quickly back up and restore this data in the event of a cyberattack or system outage.
“Previously, we relied on a legacy tool to take copies of application and system data
but it was time-consuming to update the backup settings every time we added or removed a
virtual machine,” says Ryohei Kiyoyama, Infrastructure Operation Section, IT Platform
Department, System Engineering, Sony Network Communications Inc.
Sony Network Communications decided to simplify and strengthen backup and recovery by
deploying a dedicated solution. It selected Commvault Complete™ Backup & Recovery
due to its ease of use, rapid restore times, cost-effective licensing, and automation
