Macro updates ICT infrastructure with technologies from NetApp and VEEAM
The facilities management company has implemented NetApp’s data storage and VEEAM data disaster recovery technologies.
Macro, an international facilities management company, has announced that it has upgraded its ICT infrastructure in the Middle East. The recent upgrades include the implementation of a sustainable data storage and management solution, NetApp, as well as data disaster recovery technologies from VEEAM.
The introduction of NetApp to Macro's ICT infrastructure will allow facilities management firm to manage large volumes of data, increase storage efficiencies, as well as minimise its overall carbon foot print by cutting energy consumption.
Certified by the US Environment Protection Agency, NetApp can reportedly reduce a datacentre's footprint by up to 50%.
The introduction of VEEAM Software for data disaster recovery will also enable Macro to replicate its data and access file back-ups off-site. The setup will prove crucial in the event the primary centre fails, and it additionally improves redundancy considerably.
Commenting on the implementation, Sandeep Nair, Macro's ICT Manager, said: "Such a significant investment will mean that Macro's data storage capacity is secured and scalable for the next three years as a minimum."
He added: "The disaster recovery for our key systems and data has improved with automated transfers in place. In addition, having this solution will considerably reduce Macro's power consumption with fewer hardware being utilised. As a consequence there will be both cost and environmental benefits."
