Proact has centralised the storage and backup environment for a leading Swedish security company. Proact’s solution will allowed the company to enhance security and reduce administration in the system, as well as improving conditions for testing, maintenance and development. The project began in late 2011 and will be completed over the first six months of 2012. The contract also includes ongoing support from Proact.
As the company has expanded both in Sweden and internationally, so its need for reliable, efficient data storage and backup has grown.
“The company needed to restructure its storage and backup environment so as to improve security in the infrastructure and increase data accessibility within the company. We have presented and implemented a centralised solution which will provide reliable and efficient data storage and backup. At the same time, this solution will involve less administration for the company,” says Martin Ödman, Regional Manager South at Proact.
The Swedish security company previously had a non-centralised data storage structure which caused a lot of administration and also led to low utilisation of disk space. As well as dealing with the challenges presented by means of a centralised storage and backup function, the security company will have the option of “cloning” environments; i.e. creating virtual copies of the storage environments so that testing and maintenance can be carried out.
“Testing, maintenance and development of the storage environment used to be resource-intensive activities in respect of both time and disk space. Cloning can be used by one person to create a test environment within minutes, and entirely without disruption to the production environment on which the company’s operations depend,” says Martin Ödman.
