PARIS, France and PALO ALTO, Calif., October 12, 2017 — Rubrik, the Cloud Data Management Company, today announced that FranceTV Publicité, the advertising department for the first French public service audiovisual group, has adopted Rubrik as its all-in-one data management solution for backup, recovery, cloud archival, and test/dev. The deployment replaced its legacy solution, modernizing and simplifying its infrastructure while increasing business agility with a hybrid cloud approach.
Responsible for 27.5% of PdA TV in France, FranceTV Publicité was saddled with an outdated backup solution consisting of multiple components such as software licenses, hardware, and tape. It was increasingly complex to manage, and restores were difficult and time-consuming. To ensure the company’s advertising and broadcasting systems across nearly 30 channels could run continuously and efficiently, it needed a highly secure data management solution that provided rapid recovery and reliable performance.
With Rubrik, FranceTV Publicité is experiencing significantly reduced recovery times and a 50% reduction in TCO because of its converged architecture, cloud capabilities, and management time savings. As FranceTV Publicité continues to advance its hybrid cloud strategy, the company plans to deploy Rubrik software in the cloud to protect cloud-native applications and to quickly spin up applications in the cloud for disaster recovery.
