Mercury Interactive, is global leader in Business Technology Optimization (BTO), is one of the largest enterprise software companies in the world. Mercury Interactive wanted to ensure that backup and replication for the software development team was providing the high level of data protection the company needed. With an ever-growing set of data to be backed up, the company found that backing up its Network Appliance Filers via SnapMirror could take up to 24 hours. By deploying Steelhead appliances, Mercury reduced its backup windows to roughly 6 hours. By accelerating the performance of the SnapMirror application, Mercury can now ensure that it always has the freshest possible backup of its global software development operations. In addition, IT spends less time monitoring and managing the backup process.
