How does a fast-growing heating, ventilation, and air conditioning provider in The Netherlands take the heat out of its storage environment? With concerns surrounding the cost, complexity, and manageability of its data protection and exchange environment, Wolter & Dros remained loyal to the vendor that had served it so well during the time the company was a smaller organization. By standardizing on a centralized data protection and file and email archiving platform based on integrated Symantec technologies, Wolter & Dros is minimizing storage administration time, reclaiming 50 percent of online storage, and enabling greater business continuity. An imminent upgrade to NetBackup 7 is anticipated to additionally reduce the backup window by 50 percent and deliver 70 percent rates of media server deduplication―with higher rates expected soon after.
