Koch Foods

    • Fortifying the roost for 24x7 poultry distribution

    • A data center outage at Koch Foods exposed the risks of an unreliable backup solution when it took 36 hours to restore automated operations and cost the company tens of million dollars. After the outage, IT replaced its NetApp SnapManager & Veritas Backup Exec environment with Dell EMC's Data Protection Software & Data Domain. Since moving to Dell EMC's Data Protection, the backup success rate has increased from 70 percent to 98.4 percent. Weekly backup administration that previously took 50-60 hours has decreased to just 1 hour. And all 200 VMs are done in 5 to 10 minutes compared to 16 hours before.

    • “Since moving to Dell EMC's Data Protection Software & Data Domain, we've reduced our backup data from 8 petabytes to 79 terabytes. That's a fantastic compression ratio of 103 times. We estimate we've saved thousands of dollars on storage, power consumption and maintenance.”
