Commvault announced that Emirates Steel has implemented Commvault HyperScale to support its digitalization ambitions and safeguard its manufacturing operations.

The company’s digitalization efforts include moving its SAP modules to the cloud through Microsoft public cloud solutions.

“Backup was a challenge with underlying technology scattered across different environments and running on aging Dell hardware,” said Mohammed Azam, IT Infrastructure Head at Emirates Steel “I initially liked Rubrik’s simple interface but  realized,  at the Commvault GO  event, that . Commvault HyperScale proved a more effective solution with an interface that was just as user-friendly but with the critical difference that we installed it easily and it works perfectly across our complex environment.”

Commvault HyperScale and Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery protect 400 terabytes of data hosted across SAP systems, and including SQL databases, email archives, and 20 virtual machines. “Commvault HyperScale is easy to install and use,” said Azam. “Interoperability with both public cloud and on-premises environments means we can make IT investment decisions that boost our competitive advantage without having to worry about backup.”

Two Commvault HyperScale clusters replicate data between the company’s data center and disaster recovery site to provide robust business continuity capabilities. “Commvault gives us confidence that we can recover rapidly from any scenario, including potential ransomware attacks,” said Azam. “We can now restore a critical database in less than 90 minutes compared with three hours previously.”

Commvault also helps accelerate Emirates Steel’s digital roadmap by making it simple to add new services and datasets. “Any disruption to our operational systems and the production of steel would have a national impact. By maximizing data availability, we can boost efficiency and safeguard the manufacturing supply chain,” concluded Azam.

“We are proud to expand our longstanding relationship with Emirates Steel by adding our latest HyperScale functionality and flexibility,” said Wael Mustafa, Area Vice President Middle East, South Africa & Turkey at Commvault.  “Our HyperScale solutions are offering increased data availability and business continuation assurance to many of the largest organizations across the region.”
