Logicalis provides ABB Australian with a next
generation Cloud Backup Service
ABB Australia operates with about 1500 staff and
has distributed servers with over 10 terabytes of data across 10
sites in NSW, QLD, VIC and WA. ABB is committed to helping its
utility and industry customers improve their efficiency while
lowering environmental impact.
ABB had a legacy data centre environment with file servers and
application servers distributed around multiple sites across the
country. These were backed up with disparate technology that had
begun causing major problems; the sheer volume of tapes meant data
recovery caused downtime and loss of productivity. ABB needed to
replace its outsourced legacy tape process with a centrally managed
back-up and replication solution.
Logicalis supplied ABB with the hardware,
software, technical expertise and project management skills to
migrate data housed on file servers and host this at an ABB site.
Logicalis Back-up as a Service, built on EMC’s Avamar technology,
was used to provide a full back-up of the data that complied with
ABB’s stringent global back-up and replication compliance
The managed service provided to ABB is based on
restoration SLAs and backed by penalties ensuring accountability
for the service levels committed to by Logicalis. The service
enabled ABB to migrate servers and data to a new hardware in a
simple, easy and secured fashion. ABB can now engage
Logicalis to rapidly restore data often within just a few hours.
“The most important thing for our business is that we have a lot
more confidence in the reliability of our back-ups and our ability
to restore the data” said Ather Islam, Group IS Project
"Moving from our existing outsourcer to Logicalis was a natural progression based on our future migration strategy requirements and their expertise and flexibility in this new generation of service delivery. Logicalis Back-up as a Service will give our Information Services team peace of mind around process and technology."
