Better together may be a cliché, but there is no better term for the pairing of a Data Domain appliance and the customer who owns it. The Data Domain appliances portfolio, both physical and virtual, have helped many businesses modernize their IT environments while providing best of breed deduplication and protection storage. Below are a few stories that are a testament to the Data Domain portfolio and all it has to offer.
Phoenix Children’s Hospital
When in the hospital, one of the most important variables for success is time. Before Phoenix Children’s Hospital had implemented protection storage from Dell EMC, their prior solution resulted in backup windows that were upwards of 24 hours. “Moving to Data Domain with deduplication we can finish our full backups in less than 7 hours” – Theodore Fotias – VP IT Infrastructure – Phoenix Children’s Hospital
Watch and learn how Data Domain helped Phoenix Children’s Hospital reduce backup windows and more importantly, ensure that they provide top notch care to the children that stay at the hospital.
“Everything we do is about and for the kids. It’s crucial to make sure that all critical data that a doctor or a nurse needs to be able to take care of a sick child, is protected and available at any time.” – Theodore Fotias
Founders Federal Credit Union
Founders Federal is a regional financial institution that started in 1950 and has now grown to over 30 locations in North and South Carolina. While working with Dell EMC Engineers, Founders Federal became aware of some gaps in their data protection strategy. “Today’s benefit of using Dell EMC Data Protection Software combined with Data Domain is the ability to deliver a deduplication rate of 72:1.” Bob Bender – CTO – Founders Federal Credit Union
FieldCore, a GE Company
With Hurricane Irma bearing down on the state of Florida, FieldCore was concerned about their current backup strategy. FieldCore switched to a Data Domain centric backup strategy and was up and running before Hurricane Irma made landfall in Florida.
The Dell EMC solution was implemented in less than four days. “We went from a 4:1 deduplication ratio to a 41:1 deduplication ratio with Data Domain. We saw backups go from taking upwards of 24 hours to complete to 98% of our backups completing in less than one hour. This allowed us to replicate our data before the storm actually hit.” – Kerry Johnson – Senior Systems Engineer – FieldCore
The Data Domain portfolio of backup appliances and Data Protection Software has helped countless businesses achieve their backup nirvana.
