Ontrack helps market-leading UK & European insurance company reduce archive costs by approximately 85%
An enterprise backup and archive storage provider wanted to assist it’s third party client - a marketleading UK insurance company - reduce the costs of their legacy archive storage facilities whilst maintaining restoration capabilities.
The end client was seeking to reduce the costs of maintaining a restore capability for its legacy archived data, which cost approximately £3.5 million over seven years just to maintain a restore capability.
The client then asked their new archive storage provider to seek out a way to help bring this cost down whilst maintaining the ability to restore and extract data from the legacy tapes, as these were not compatible with the new archive storage provider’s systems and required the proprietary software. The archive storage provider contacted Ontrack with their dilemma; so that they could progress with the sale of the modern archive system with a solution for maintaining the accessibility of the legacy archive tapes.
