Catering company Delaware North has chosen CTERA to ensure all of its corporate data is correctly backed up.
Delaware North delivers food and beverages to patrons and guests and stadiums, resorts, airports and food franchises across Australia. With over 30 sites – some of which are in remote locations in the Northern Territory or Great Barrier Reef islands – the company had been facing several challenges with regards to its data backup and recovery.
The company struggled as files needed to be restored but the backup process failed as a result of tapes not being changed or stored correctly offsite. As a result, Delaware North turned to AirShare, a cloud-based backup solution, that has been complemented with a hybrid solution using hardware from CTERA, a cloud storage and data protection specialist.
The CTERA appliance is a local disk-based appliance that keeps a copy of the data locally but works with AirShare so data is also sent to the cloud. According to infrastructure manager Mark Brennan, the CTERA solution made the process of restoring two terabytes of data faster than having to pull the same volume of data down from AWS.
Brennan explained: “If we’ve got the appliance there, we just go to the appliance. Instead of downloading everything from the cloud we’ve got the local backup but we still have the offsite backup for a DR situation.”
Now that data is backed up offsite, in one central location, the company has a single pane of glass to monitor the backup system, making it far more efficient.
