Sogang University wanted to move from tape backups to a disk-to-disk-to-tape approach to improve the speed and reliability of backup and recovery. It deployed an appliance-based data protection solution from Symantec with services from Symantec Master Specialist Partner GT Solution. Results include fivefold faster deployment, 50 percent reduction in total cost of ownership for data protection, 30 percent savings in hardware costs, 100 percent successful backups and restores, 30 percent reduction in recovery time, up to 85 percent reduction in size of the backup image with deduplication, 50 percent less management time required for data protection, and projected payback in less than two years. In addition, the university’s IT leaders also turned to Symantec for comprehensive Web security solutions that significantly reduce the university’s exposure to threats and reduce downtime for students and the IT department.
