MediaMarkt: Riverbed Technology Enables Backup and Disaster Recovery Strategy, and Network Traffic Visibility, at Retail Organization
MediaMarkt is Europe's largest electrical goods retailer, and has expanded into China with several stores in Shanghai. 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, MediaMarkt 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.
