Support digital transformation and a move towards the cloud with a sophisticated physical and virtual data protection and storage strategy.
As a growing business, and with data storage requirements increasing 20 to 30 percent every year, data backup is a strategic issue for Iskratel. With more sophisticated requirements, Iskratel wanted to optimize its storage strategy, as well as licensing for Micro Focus Data Protector, which had been in use for many years. Anton Kavcic, IT Director for Iskratel, explains further: “Our environment is hybrid, with a mix of physical and virtual storage targets, and we support different OS platforms. We wanted to streamline and simplify our storage by introducing HPE StoreOnce, and our backup solution had to integrate with this. With our strategy moving more towards virtual data storage, our Data Protector licensing model needed to be reviewed. Plus, we were aware that we needed to upgrade to a more recent version to take advantage of advanced backup capabilities.”
Iskratel wants to drive digital transformation, expanding into different industries. To do more with less, optimizing costs and prioritizing investments was important. As part of the review of Data Protector, Iskratel decided to compare Data Protector with other market alternatives.
