DCS Europe Data storage and IT management:
NTT Europe, the international arm of leading global communications and ICT solutions provider NTT Communications, is implementing the Sepaton S2100®-ES2 data protection platform to protect its business critical data and to maintain the highest levels of service to its customers as it expands throughout Europe.
As an ICT service provider, NTT Europe needs to maintain immediate, reliable access to a massive volume of customer data. The company backs up more than 200 TB of this data nightly - a volume expected to increase exponentially as the company pursues its plan to expand throughout Europe.
The company needed to drive down costs, while also providing the enormous scalability of performance and capacity required to handle this massive growth without jeopardising its Service Level Agreements with its customers. “In addition to scalability, we wanted a high performance solution that would enable us to restore our customers’ data rapidly; back up growing data volumes to safety within tight timeframes; and cut capacity costs through data deduplication,” said Adam Lembariti, senior product manager for NTT Europe.
NTT Europe evaluated several backup solutions and determined that the Sepaton S2100 was the safest solution because it not only delivers the fastest performance in the industry, but will enable NTT Europe to deliver reliable, high quality service to its customers regardless of how quickly or how large the NTT Europe organization grows. Overall, NTT Europe calculated that the Sepaton S2100 was the most cost-efficient data protection solution to meet their needs.
Scalability Maintains Service Levels, Reduces Complexity
“Sepaton not only delivers the fastest performance in the industry, its performance is reliable, predictable, and guaranteed – giving us the ability to meet our customers’ expectations for service with confidence,” said Lembariti. “That’s a competitive advantage for us.” The performance promised by competing vendors varies widely depending on data volumes, change rates, deduplication efficiency and a wide range of other factors.
Unique Deduplication Cuts Capacity without Slowing Performance
The S2100 also offers a level of flexibility that competing solutions cannot not provide. “With Sepaton, we can create a separate storage pool for each of our customers and use the multitenancy feature to track customer usage for charge-back purposes,” said Moore. “With Sepaton, we have a variety of powerful management options open to us that no other solution could provide, which are imperative to a leading Service Provider, such as NTT.”
Tim Butchart, Sepaton’s vice president and general manager of Europe, Middle East, and Africa operations said, “We are focused on meeting the specific needs of large enterprise organizations like NTT Europe. As a result, we have an extremely knowledgeable team of specialists who have the experience to act as an extension of NTT Europe to deliver the best possible performance results, and a rapid return on their investment. This is a great example of how our enterprise-focused expertise and technology combine to deliver a superior data protection solution for our customers.”
He concluded, “NTT Europe is a great example of a customer that we enjoy a strong partnership with. We share a joint vision and a solid data protection strategy which supports NTT’s goals to provide industry leading backup and recovery Services to its growing customer base.”
