South Korean hosting provider Gabia Inc. offers backup and recovery as an add-on service for customers. Its legacy data protection solution struggled to fit backups within a four-hour backup window. Gabia deployed a data protection solution from Symantec that uses source-based deduplication to reduce backup data by 70 percent. The company now protects 50-fold more customer data within the same daily window, and the solution achieved 100 percent payback within the first year.
