Engineering and environmental firm e2M manages large volumes of project data in 12 geographically separated offices. Each office was backing up all of its data locally and storing backups on site, a time-intensive process that resulted in a mere 60 percent recovery success rate. With assistance from Dell, the firm designed a centralized backup architecture built on Dell PowerEdge rack-mounted and blade servers, two Dell EqualLogic iSCSI SAN arrays, and a Dell PowerVault robotic disk and tape storage unit. Dell then provided a data protection solution from Symantec for deduplication and centralized backup.
