Zwanenberg Food Group Selects Commvault for Data Management and Compliance
European meat producer chooses Commvault Data Platform to maximise data value with Nutanix AHV hypervisor
Utrecht, Netherlands – Oct. 9, 2017 - Commvault (NASDAQ:CVLT), a global leader in enterprise backup, recovery, archive and the cloud, today announced that European producer and exporter of meat products, Zwanenberg Food Group, has implemented the Commvault Data Platform to provide backup and recovery to ensure improved speed of compliance with data management legislation and facilitate effective disaster recovery through email and file archiving functionality at the company headquarters in Almelo. The other critical element was that Commvault provides extremely broad coverage for hypervisors and containers, delivering full integration with Zwanenberg’s recently implemented Nutanix AHVTM hypervisor, running on the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud PlatformTM. This enabled a significant decrease to backup timescales and streamlined corporation-wide data monitoring and management.
Zwanenberg Food Group is one of the leading European producers and exporters of meat products. The family-run company has factories in the United States, the United Kingdom and the Netherlands. The seven production sites in the Netherlands have on-premises datacentres, making sure the facilities run flawlessly and autonomously.
Zwanenberg recently refreshed its entire IT infrastructure with inclusion of a Nutanix AHV-based environment. The Nutanix environment eliminated the need for tapes for long-term archiving at the company’s headquarters. This enabled all production sites to have automated snapshots delivered every two hours, stored locally and also sent to the headquarters in Almelo for compliance, DR, backup and archiving purposes.
The Commvault Data Platform was the logical choice for Zwanenberg to provide full data management at its headquarters in Twentepoort, Almelo as a data management solution that is fully and immediately compatible with Nutanix AHV.
“We needed a trusted vendor to support our IT technology refresh with a solid and compatible solution,” said Eilko Bronsema, Manager IT at Zwanenberg Food Group. “Commvault was chosen based on their ability to deliver an easy to maintain and solid solution, and their unique compatibility with Nutanix AHV.”
“Previously, our backup window cost us almost a day, but in the current setup with Commvault, everything is reliably wrapped-up by morning,” continued Bronsema. “As a result of the implementation of Commvault, our IT-department is spending far less time on controlling and handling, due to the easy management and the standardised platforms. This frees-up staff for higher value activities and for a relatively small IT department like ours, that extra time is very precious.”
“Zwanenberg, like many other organisations at the moment, underwent a full IT refresh to provide better business enablement and Commvault, and its partnerships with vendors like Nutanix, was a vital piece of this puzzle,” said Rob Van Lubek, Area-Vice President EMEA Northwest, at Commvault. “It is also fantastic to see that the Commvault Data Platform has allowed the Zwanenberg IT team to take back control of their time, rather than waiting for lengthy backups, and focus on innovative IT projects that move their business forward.”
“Virtualization should be an integral part of the infrastructure stack, not a standalone product that needs to be bought, deployed and managed separately,” said Venugopal Pai, Vice President of Strategic Alliances and Business Development, Nutanix. “The Commvault and Nutanix partnership helped Zwanenberg achieve the best of multiple worlds by combining the savings and ease of management of the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform utilizing AHV with the holistic data protection and management of the Commvault Data Platform.”
