Case Study: Richardson International

Case Study



Richardson International cultivates modern data management & virtual server protection with Commvault software.



• Unreliable backup and recovery of completely virtualized environment created operational inefficiencies

• Separate point products for virtual server protection, remote tape backups, desktop/laptop protection and DR exacerbated administrative strain

• Unreliable deduplication caused additional performance problems

• One full-time staffer was required to baby-sit the faulty process



Commvault Software



• Greatly improved support for virtualized environment due to tight integration with VMware and ability to leverage vStorage API for data protection

• Additional ability to perform local and centralized backups/restores enabled elimination of two point products in favor of Simpana software

• Capacity licensing model enables team to focus on solutions rather than get caught up in costing models

• Streamlined administration has freed approximately one full-time staffer for lowered costs and increased efficiencies

• Nine-month ROI projected, especially as the company seeks ways to leverage other capabilities provided by Commvault’s unified approach to data protection
