Manufacturing company expands into new markets and increases market share

Baar, Switzerland – 14 November 2019 — / — Veeam® Software, the leader in backup solutions that enables Cloud Data Management™, today announced that Svenska Fönster, one of Europe’s leading window manufacturers, chose Veeam Availability Suite™ and NetApp® ONTAP® to improve IT efficiency before increasing window production – a precursor to increasing market share.

“We had to be sure we could manufacture more windows in a shorter timeframe,” said Mattias Forslindh, IT Project Manager at Svenska Fönster. “The company had invested in a state-of-the art factory in Edsbyn and had hired and trained the best employees. Only one challenge remained: Legacy backup couldn’t keep up with business growth.”

Forslindh said taking and removing VMware vSphere snapshots during backup and replication was putting a tremendous burden on virtual machines (VMs), which created a performance bottleneck in production. Recovery was an issue too. “Recovering the four-terabyte VM that supports our resource planning (ERP) system could take up to two days, which was unacceptable to the business,” he said. “Our ERP system has to be available all the time because it keeps track of customers’ orders. If it’s not available, we can’t manufacture windows.”

Veeam integrates fully with NetApp ONTAP to ensure the ERP system is always available. Veeam orchestrates backup, replication and recovery through direct integration with NetAppONTAP storage snapshots and VMware vSphere, reducing the backup window from five hours to five minutes (98%) and increasing recovery speed to hours from days (89%).

“Veeam integration with NetApp was a game-changer for us,” Forslindh said. “We simplified data protection and improved IT efficiency, enabling us to support our company’s business strategy to increase market share. Data protection has become so fast and easy that we’ve also been able to improve our work-life balance.”

Inefficient IT operations had caused the IT team to work overtime. Even routine maintenance caused performance problems in production, so it had to be completed during evenings and weekends. “Veeam and NetApp reduced the administrative burden on our team, giving us back our evenings and weekends,” Forslindh said.
