One of Saudi Arabia’s main commercial banks, Al Bank Al Saudi Al Fransi (BSF) has announced that it has consolidated it data back up systems with help from STME, provider of best-of-breed storage solutions for enterprise in the Middle East.

Using VERITAS software and StorageTek tape libraries, the solution allows BSF to back up its business critical data from more than 50 servers on a Storage Area Network (SAN) and manage the data from one centralised point.

“BSF’s new system will keep our business applications running smoothly while providing long term investment protection for our IT infrastructure. Because reliable information access is so critical to BSF’s continued market success, we selected STME, VERITAS and StorageTek as technology partners for this project based on their exclusive enterprise focus and commitment to the region,” said Hashem Al-Alawi, BSF’s project manager for the centralised back up system.

The new system allows disruption of online processes by backing up to be minimised while the management time and effort required is greatly reduced so saving money. “Having a single source of data management across the entire BSF enterprise makes the bank a leaner, more efficient organisation,” said Mike Hynes, regional manager of VERITAS.
