Greater options for a changing future
UST Global’s recovery and backup requirements covered many aspects. UST Global needed to provide comprehensive coverage across physical servers, virtual machines, endpoints, and several mission critical applications, such as Microsoft Sharepoint, Microsoft SQL and MySQL databases, and Windows File System storage instances.
Through Commvault, UST Global was able to centralize its backups and manage the data recovery of its entire portfolio of servers and applications from a single pane. Managing both near-line recovery to disks as well as long term backups to tape from a single platform has also optimized data restoration times across its 50TB environment.
While that provides protection for its existing data, UST Global understood that it needed to account for changes in technology today if it was to continue to be competitive tomorrow.
“Technology changes happen so rapidly in this digital world. Thus our focus is to be ahead of the game in all aspects. Our solution vision is not limited to just support today’s workloads, but tomorrow’s as well. Commvault’s native integration with cloud providers, and the options that their platform offers represents an investment to us in how we approach the future in an open vendor manner,” said Sunil Kanchi, Chief Information Officer & Senior Vice President, UST Global.
“Even if new advances in technology change best practice, we have the confidence that we can quickly adapt and make the best use of it, without being locked in to any specific cloud provider or proprietary technology,” said Sam Felix, Infrastructure Architect, UST Global.
Now that UST Global has in place a flexible platform, it has the option to further protect selected critical virtual machines at its Chennai site and perform automated backup, replication, and restoration.
Not only that, but it can also include mission critical physical servers in its disaster recovery and business continuity plans through Commvault’s Virtualize Me function.
A partner now and tomorrow
UST Global has trusted Commvault with protecting its data for seven years. When choosing a partner to optimize their data recovery operations, Commvault was again its vendor of choice not only because of its technology offerings, but also the customer experience when it came to product use, support, and professional services.
“Commvault’s professional services contributed to hassle-free operations. Also, their training programs helped build expertise with our engineers,” said Raveendran. “Their vision of data management, and what it can do for businesses like ours is the most complete, yet also represents a compelling case when it comes to the total cost of ownership. We’re pleased to continue entrusting them with our protection needs now and into the future.”
