To support rapid growth, streamline backup of 16 terabytes, and simplify protection of a nearly 100 percent virtualized environment, New Zealand-based home improvement chain Mitre 10 turned to Symantec to upgrade its approach to data protection. Results include up to 3x faster backups, 67 percent less backup administration time, more than 400 hours per year reclaimed in productivity, and projected five-figure annual savings by essentially eliminating tape operations.
W.T. International provides data protection and other IT services to more than 100 other businesses. To enhance data protection, it upgraded to Symantec Backup Exec 2014. This enables the seven-person IT team to streamline backup administration by 50 hours per year, speed up backups for virtual and physical systems by up to 100 percent, enable daily virtual server backups to recover more current data, and save several thousand euro.
Florida’s Horizon Business Services serves 4,000 businesses and 30,000 users with hosting, and hasn’t raised hosting prices in nine years. Backup Exec 2014 contributes to that efficiency by backing up 20 percent faster and deduplicating at a 10 percent higher ratio than Backup Exec 2012, deduplicating 3x faster than Backup Exec 2010, and achieving 99% backup success and 100% recovery success with 20 recoveries per month.
