Serving 42 million customers, processes at Gatwick Airport are supported by 25 mission-critical systems. With IT playing a role in almost every airport operation, failure can lead to downtime, data loss, delays and reputational damage. Gatwick required a redundant, resilient and robust IT infrastructure.
Gatwick relied on Veeam® Backup & Replication™ and Veeam Explorer™ to reduce risks of downtime and data loss, ensuring they are 100% capable of performing recovery quickly. Veeam’s Instant VM Recovery™ restores whole VMs, guest files and application items from regular backups in minutes.
Gatwick has leveraged the benefits of virtualised platforms and storage to accelerate and significantly reduce the complexity of back up processes for 250 VMs across two data centres, securing 38TB of data. This secures Gatwick’s status as the most efficient single-runway airport in the world.
