Celerity’s latest cloud technology solutions have made a significant impact in reducing backup and restore times for a local government client.
Celerity’s Cloud Object Storage (COS) solution achieved an incredible 300% performance increase on restore time times compared to the customer’s legacy tape based recovery. Originally the recovery of a 400GB data base was taking 9 hours, this has now been improved to just 2 hours 45 minutes using COS. This represents a significant breakthrough for the client allowing them to retire their current legacy tape based backup solution along with the requirement for manual handling of tapes.
The new COS solution also provides a full DR capability by maintaining an offsite copy of the data for recovery, which removes the necessity to physically transfer media offsite when using a tape based DR solution.
