  • Commvault, SAP and Cisco among group of industry leaders at the centre of the data centre modernization at Greenply, powering business continuity, scalability and speed
  • Commvault enables efficiencies with time savings of approximately 70 percent for management of data
  • De-duplication with Commvault reduces source data by almost 50 percent, enabling Greenply to slash storage-related costs by 40 percent

NEW DELHI, India – Oct. 13, 2015 - Commvault (NASDAQ: CVLT) – Greenply Industries Limited, the largest interior infrastructure company in India, has today announced a major modernization of their data centre infrastructure by implementing SAP HANA, Cisco UCS C240 servers and Commvault’s data protection and information management solution.

Greenply, which has a turnover of more than Rs. 2,000 crore (USD $307M), sought to build a new IT infrastructure using industry leading solutions following the de-merger of their two entities – Greenlam and Greenply. The decision to implement Commvault software ensured Greenply could provide the organisation with a robust data management capability which had superior integration with SAP HANA and Cisco UCS. As a result, the company has been able to slash storage related costs by 40 percent, reduce data at its source by almost 50 percent thanks to de-duplication and reduce time to manage data by 70 percent, as compared with their previous CA backup solution.

“As a manufacturing company, we simply cannot afford any downtime,” said Dr. Vineet Bansal, Chief Information Officer at Greenply. “The entire supply chain is dependent on information being available, protected and reliable so having a rock-solid data management solution is essential to the business. One of the key reasons we chose Commvault software was it was one of the few solutions certified for SAP HANA. It also integrates seamlessly into our extensive Cisco environment, which together provides us with the ‘perfect combination’ to ensure a scalable, user-friendly and fully compatible data storage and management solution. Commvault’s software automates and streamlines the data protection and archiving process so no extensive training was required, and the implementation and configuration was very simple.”

Greenply uses Commvault to manage backups of business critical database servers, VMware Hypervisors and file systems, including a disaster recovery strategy supported by Commvault’s Intellisnap and replication capabilities. Data is replicated from the primary data centre in Noida to their DR site in Bengaluru, which is a safer location from natural disasters than other parts of India.

Seamless Integration with Existing IT Investments Enable Commvault to Provide Centralized Management of Information

Commvault software runs seamlessly on top of Greenply’s selected server technologies including SAP HANA, Nexus switches and Cisco Unified Computing Systems (UCS C240 servers), NetApp storage, SUSE, Sybase DB, Microsoft SQL Server and VMware Hypervisor. Managing a compressed 12TB of database and file system backup and recovery data, Commvault's solution is supporting the entire organization by enabling centralized management of information, and ensuring business continuity.

“Disaster recovery and business continuity strategies, particularly for companies operating out of high risk locations, need to be robust and reliable,” said Ramesh Mamgain, Area Vice President of Sales - India & SAARC at Commvault. “Commvault’s strategic partnerships with vendors like Cisco and SAP ensure our customers are well equipped to build technology infrastructure that not only mitigates the risk of data loss, but powers their business for the future.”
