Media Markt: Riverbed Technology Enables Backup and Disaster Recovery Strategy and Network Traffic Visibility at Retail Organization
As part of its business expansion plan, Media Markt opened retail stores in Shanghai, China, and plans to open up many more across the country. A critical business process is the backing up of data from each store. The Shanghai stores are linked to the data center via a low-bandwidth 2MB line and gigabytes of data are backed up from each store overnight. By deploying Riverbed Steelhead appliances, Media Markt can now back up data in minutes instead of hours. The deployment of Riverbed Cascade has given the company much greater network traffic visibility, and enabled network managers to identify potential problems across the WAN, and solve them quickly.
