The company’s digitalization efforts include moving its SAP modules to the cloud through Microsoft public cloud solutions.

“Backup was a challenge with underlying technology scattered across different environments and running on aging Dell hardware,” said Mohammed Azam, IT Infrastructure Head at Emirates Steel.

Emirates Steel did not select Rubrik, a cloud data management company based in Palo Alto, California, United States.

“I initially liked Rubrik’s simple interface. But I realized, at the Commvault GO event, that Commvault HyperScale proved a more effective solution with an interface that was just as user-friendly but with the critical difference that we installed it easily and it works perfectly across our complex environment,” Mohammed Azam said.

Emirates Steel’s IT team has deployed Commvault HyperScale and Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery and protected 400 terabytes of data hosted across SAP systems, and including SQL databases, email archives, and 20 virtual machines.

Two Commvault HyperScale clusters replicate data between the company’s data center and disaster recovery site to provide robust business continuity capabilities. Commvault is assisting Emirates Steel to restore a critical database in less than 90 minutes compared with three hours previously.

Commvault also helps accelerate Emirates Steel’s digital roadmap by making it simple to add new services and datasets.

“Our HyperScale solutions are offering increased data availability and business continuation assurance to many of the largest organizations across the region,” Wael Mustafa, area vice president Middle East, South Africa & Turkey at Commvault.
