Challenge
To deliver disaster recovery capabilities and minimize the use of time-consuming tape storage, Tasmania Fire Service needed a data backup and recovery strategy which was cost-effective and easy to manage.
Solution
The fire service achieved data center consolidation by deploying a virtualized infrastructure featuring Dell PowerEdge servers. The organization also protects its data with a backup and recovery plan using Dell DR backup appliances and Dell PowerVault storage, with Dell ProSupport always within reach.
Benefits
• Decreasing data recovery administration by 90 percent re-allocates time to core services
• Cost-efficient disk de-duplication reduces storage demands
• Reliance shifts from tape to automated, highly available disk backup
• Data demands are met through easy expansion of disk appliance
