Activision Protects Data and Transforms Development With NetApp
Activision, Inc., is a leading worldwide video game publisher, developer, and distributor. Activision had standardized on a high-end Hitachi FC SAN infrastructure to manage its corporate-wide business applications. It had a limited data replication or business continuity strategy and relied on a SAN-to-tape solution for disaster recovery. The company wanted to gain more robust disaster recovery and backup solutions; optimize the testing, development, and upgrade process of Oracle applications. Activision began by deploying a complete infrastructure from NetApp to manage its corporate-wide data and application assets. The company originally installed a NetApp R200 for backup and recovery at both its corporate office in Santa Monica and at its DR site in Burbank.
