Communauté d’Agglomération Melun Val de Seine Reduces Costs and Management Time with Rubrik

The Communauté d’Agglomération Melun Val de Seine (CAMVS) is a French urban community, located in the Île-de-France region, in the Seine-et-Marne department. As a public inter-municipal cooperation establishment, CAMVS provides a number of services, including economic development, transport, habitat, environment, higher education, culture, and sports. They currently support 20 municipalities and over 130,000 inhabitants. We recently spoke with Emmanuel Chadoutaud, who manages the Infrastructure Systems and Data Security for 14 municipalities. What challenges were you experiencing with data protection? As a result of consolidating 14 municipalities into one centralized IT department, we [ended up] managing about ten different backup solutions. All of these solutions were error-prone and unreliable. We weren’t confident in our ability to guarantee reliable and always-on services. Additionally, the volume of work involved in just monitoring backups was becoming unmanageable. We had several occasions where we were unable to meet our SLAs due to solutions crashing. It got to the point that we were dealing with one backup incident or more per week. What were you looking for in your new solution? We’re a small, agile team, and monitoring our previous solutions was taking too much time. We simply cannot afford to be specialists in several different…

Edge-ier Cloud Data Management for ROBO Environments

Imagine a small satellite office with minimal data, but data that needs to be backed up nonetheless. Organizations suffering from the complexity of legacy solutions often face costly and inefficient backup processes when dealing with remote and branch offices (ROBO) data. That’s why we created Rubrik Edge – a software appliance built specifically for ROBO environments that stretches data protection and management to the far-flung corners of our customers’ businesses. With Edge, companies can save time by managing backup and replication policies–rather than creating individual backup schedules–and quickly recover all data, no matter where it’s stored. Deploy Edge at remote locations to backup locally, replicate to a central data center, and archive to the cloud with an easy interface. We’ve gathered three stories of how our customers are using Rubrik Edge to bring operational simplicity and cost savings to their ROBO locations. Stora Enso Unifies Data Management Across Eight Remote Offices Stora Enso is a leading sustainable newsprint and magazine paper manufacturer that produces 540,000 tons of paper annually. Headquartered in Helsinki, Finland, the manufacturer is a leading provider of renewable solutions in packaging, biomaterials, wooden constructions, and paper on global markets.

Grove Bank & Trust Is Hurricane-Ready with Rubrik

A South Florida staple since 1926, Grove Bank & Trust is the oldest continuously operating bank in Miami Dade County. Named for the Coconut Grove neighborhood of Miami that hosts its headquarters, Grove Bank & Trust delivers checking, savings, lending, financial planning, insurance, and investment services to customers through its five branch offices in Miami, Aventura, and Coral Gables. At Grove Bank & Trust, CIO Sergio Garcia leads a team of three that handles all IT functions and initiatives across the entire bank. What challenges were you experiencing with data protection? Our legacy backup solution was unreliable, difficult to manage, and often resulted in failed backups. These inadequacies placed Grove Bank at risk of being non-compliant with SLAs and industry regulations. We have to hold a lot of our data for multiple years, and we weren’t backing up everything that we needed to in case of a disaster. It’s not just that the old solution was difficult to use, it’s that it made it difficult to provide the regulators with proof that we have backups, can recover, and have completed adequate testing. What were you looking for in your new solution? The bank is growing very rapidly, and we’ve been aggressively…

CarePoint Health Simplifies Operations with Rubrik and Microsoft Azure

Headquartered in Jersey City, New Jersey, CarePoint Health is a leader in the delivery of preventive medicine, healthcare education, and disease management. Each year, CarePoint Health delivers hundreds of thousands of healthcare services to residents in Hudson County through its three area hospitals. Lev Goronshteyn, CTO at CarePoint Health, discusses how Rubrik and Microsoft Azure simplified CarePoint’s data management operations and helped them eliminate tape. What challenges were you experiencing with data protection? When we combined the three hospital IT environments, it created a lot of complexity and performance challenges for us. Our old system was inherently difficult to use, our backups were taking 12 hours or longer to complete, and our restores could take hours. We were spending a lot of time on backups, and we wanted to free our employees up to work on other initiatives. We also were sitting on a vast amount of tape, which was challenging to manage and needed to be eliminated. Why did you choose Rubrik and Microsoft Azure? We knew that by transitioning to a hybrid cloud we could unlock cost savings and efficiency gains that weren’t possible with our legacy systems. To get the results we wanted, we knew that we needed…
