PoINT Storage Manager solves data protection problems at BayernInvest
Siegen. PoINT Software & Systems GmbH has won a well-known financial service provider as customer - BayernInvest Kapitalverwaltungsgesellschaft mbH.
BayernInvest Kapitalverwaltungsgesellschaft mbH has been operating for 25 years in the financial sector. The continuously increasing data volume has led to backup problems so that the financial service provider was looking for a solution optimizing storage resources and off-loading primary storage. Compliant archiving of inactive data is especially important for the company as this can be used as proof in case of a dispute at court. Although archived data has to be in permanent access it needs to be protected against manipulation and deletion. PoINT Storage Manager was selected fulfilling all requirements. By this software BayernInvest has already archived in a first step one third of its data volume.
The company uses a SAN hard disk system attached to a windows server where PoINT Storage Manager is installed. Data in the primary storage is stored in four data areas, so called shares, whereby for each a storage vault with a TAFS Agent had been set up.
As archive storage four different LUNs (virtual hard disks) were installed on which BayernInvest archives its historical data according the above mentioned data areas. The data protection and data security functionality of PoINT Storage Manager ensure that archived data cannot be deleted nor modified offering compliant archiving. In addition BayernInvest gains savings with respect to backup as daily data volume had been reduced.
Mr. Seitz of BayernInvest Kapitalverwaltungsgesellschaft mbH summarizes: “By PoINT Storage Manager we were able to get our problems with the limited storage capacity and the archiving of our historical data under control. The archived data can still be accessed at any time and, thanks to the software, it is protected against deletion and modification.”
