Veeam delivers high-speed recovery, reducing storage consumption by 50%

DUBAI, UAE – October 15, 2014 — / — The Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) has reduced backup storage consumption by 50% due to Veeam. Having deployed Veeam Backup Management Suite , DWTC has achieved availability of its virtual environment and met recovery time and point objectives (RTPOs).

Established in 1979, the Dubai World Trade Centre is the UAE’s largest purpose-built events and exhibitions complex. At the center of the Middle East’s business tourism, each year the facility creates 25,000 jobs and attracts two million visitors. With a continuous series of high profile events on the centre’s calendar, a robust IT infrastructure is a prerequisite. Round-the-clock operations also demand unquestionable levels of availability, timely backups, and efficient use of storage space – all of which were offered by Veeam.

“We considered several solutions but only Veeam Backup Management Suite offered the scalability, flexibility and capacity planning capabilities we needed as a growing enterprise. Backup no longer creates an obstacle. Veeam’s solution provides availability of the entire virtual environment, performing ad hoc backups as often as we want,” said Galal EItahan, Senior Manager, IT Operations, Information Technology, Dubai World Trade Centre.

Veeam backs up every virtual machine (VM) in DWTC’s production and R&D environments to onsite storage daily. Veeam’s built-in deduplication and compression ensures that backups utilize half the storage that legacy backups required, which saves DWTC nearly US$5,500 each year. With Veeam meeting RTPOs is fast and easy. For example, Instant VM Recovery™ recovers a failed VM as well as operating system (OS) files and application from a regular backup in minutes.

“Veeam recovery saves us significant time and facilitates business continuity,” Eltahan continued. “After we applied a security patch to one of our applications, the application failed to work properly. We recovered the application from a backup in minutes and continued with business as usual.”

Veeam monitoring and reporting tool verifies that DWTC`s VMs are configured for successful backups and assesses backup repository capacity requirements. Veeam enables complete visibility due to prebuilt alerts, real-time monitoring, advanced reporting and capacity planning. These new capabilities allow DWTC`s 30-member IT team to save crucial time and leverage operational processes, meeting current and future business priorities.

“Veeam provides deeper monitoring and more detailed reporting than our previous tool, which helps us quickly identify and resolve incidents before they affect users,” Eltahan said. “With Veeam, it’s easy to see the cause of a bottleneck and check load balancing among hosts. Veeam also helps us with capacity planning, enabling assessment of system utilization and overall performance of each VM, which gives a clear indication for optimizing resources to ensure system health.”

Veeam helped the Dubai World Trade Centre modernise their data availability strategy while protecting their investment in the latest virtualization, cloud and storage technologies that modern data centers are built on. DWTC managed to increase administrator productivity and mitigate daily management risks.
