Slashing backup windows "in half"
Chivas Brothers, the producer of Scotch whiskies, has replaced multiple, inefficient backup and recovery products with CommVault Systems, Inc.'s Simpana software to help improve data management operations.
Chivas Brothers is now using Simpana software's disk-based backup and recovery, deduplication and replication capabilities to modernise and simplify its legacy systems and processes.
Chivas Brothers' long history of business expansion and growth had resulted in an IT infrastructure composed of multiple physical and virtual servers, various financial applications and information systems and several disparate backup products. These, in turn, made maintaining recovery and management operations difficult and costly. Four remote sites and a heavy reliance on tape further compounded the problem, adding onerous administrative costs to the equation.
