Having opted to wait for the launch of Symantec NetBackup 7, Aenova quickly replaced its previous technology with this open, complete, and integrated data protection solution. Now, four months later, this international contract healthcare manufacturer is benefiting from 90 percent rates of client and media server deduplication―which is saving the company a commensurate amount of money in storage investment, a four-fold reduction in the backup window from 24 hours to six hours, and a reduction in storage administration time from three hours to 30 minutes. Data, of course, is also secure.
