Belgacom Opts for CentricStor to Speed Up Data Protection in the Open Systems World
The Belgacom Group (Belgacom S.A. and its subsidiaries) is the first telecommunications company in Belgium and a market leader in many fields, particularly in wholesale and retail. Belgacom wanted to migrate from heterogeneous tape storage environment to uniform tape processing for the mainframe environment and open systems world to handle expansion of data volume. To master these challenges Belgacom Group chose Fujitsu. Belgacom consolidated data protection of its mainframe environment and open systems with CentricStor. The CentricStor grid architecture functionally encompasses two data centers. Each data center has a CentricStor Virtual Tape Appliance that protects data through local and remote tape processing. With this solution Belgacom Group were able to take faster backup.
