AFA Insurance Covers Storage Efficiencies With NetApp Business Continuity and Data Protection Solutions
AFA Insurance is one of Sweden's top insurance organizations providing coverage for more than 3 million employees from both the private and public sectors. AFA Insurance began looking for a new storage platform when their current solution had come to the end of its performance and capacity possibilities. Their challenge is to improve efficiencies for data retention on all levels and maximize server virtualization. AFA Insurance chose NetApp to overcome these challenges. They implemented integrated storage, backup & recovery and archiving in one NetApp unified solution. The results of deploying NetApp were simplified overall management process, realized up to 40% reduction in data with deduplication and 60% in VMware environment, increased flexibility using thin provisioning and improved data protection with accelerated backup and restore.
