As long as the DD200 is around, we are not bringing tape back to our environment. It is an excellent device and it should be part of every IT department's disaster recovery.
Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) May 6, 2005
Data DomainÂ®, the leader in next-generation data protection solutions, today announced that Paramit Corp. has deployed Data Domain DD200 Restorer recovery appliances and Replicator software to manage the backup and recovery of its mission-critical data. The Data Domain disk-based solution has enabled Paramit, a provider of specialized electronic manufacturing services, to eliminate its day-to-day tape backups Â and replicate data inexpensively over the WAN.
Morgan Hill, Calif.-based Paramit Corp. provides fully integrated manufacturing and test services to leading OEMs in the semiconductor, telecommunications, networking, medical and other high-technology industries. Paramit is using the Data Domain appliances to back up ERP data, home directories, and a Microsoft Exchange data store, reducing backup and restore windows by up to 75%, and dramatically reducing costs. In addition, Data Domain Replicator software and Global Compression technology are enabling Paramit to replicate data to a remote site using minimal network bandwidth, significantly reducing the companyÂs reliance on offsite tape vault storage.
"Before going tapeless, data restores were a huge ordeal. Thanks to Data Domain, I was able to cut restore times from several hours to one hour, which made my end-user customer audience very, very happy," said Eritara Tito Bira, Network Systems Manager, Paramit Corp. "As long as the DD200 is around, we are not bringing tape back to our environment. It is an excellent device and it should be part of every IT department's disaster recovery."
According to Bira, the ability to restore data rapidly and reliably is critical to maintaining staff productivity when recovering from disk or application failures. Since implementing the Data Domain solution, Paramit has realized data compression ratios of 20x, allowing the IT team to keep up to 12 weeks of data online and ready for rapid restores. Additionally, Data Domain Replicator software has become an essential part of ParamitÂs Disaster Recovery and Business Continuation planning by enabling efficient, reliable replication over the WAN.
ÂParamit is taking full advantage of Data Domain Restorer and Replicator together Â eliminating day-to-day tape backups and keeping offsite tape storage to a minimum,Â said Frank Slootman, president and CEO, Data Domain. ÂWe understand how important quality, integrity and customer satisfaction are to Paramit and weÂre pleased that they have selected Data Domain to meet their most demanding data protection requirements.Â
