#1 Global Leader in Data Resilience

EGAT drives digital transformation and strengthens data protection with Veeam

State-owned power utility increases restoration time 12x while reducing operating expenses with Veeam

Thailand, April 29, 2022: Veeam Software, the leader in backup, recovery and data management solutions that deliver Modern Data Protection, today announced that Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT) selected Veeam Backup & Replication to help prevent interruptions to its operations while reducing operating costs and benefiting the users in the country with lower electricity bills.

EGAT is Thailand’s state-owned power utility responsible for securing and providing electricity power which is the country’s essential infrastructure. The need to continuously innovate and transform their operations as the leader in the utilities industry is a must.

To achieve a high level of performance, the business operations are heavily dependent on the system and technology to run smoothly.  EGAT must ensure that there are no interruptions to the system. A failure in the system will affect not only its operations but will also set off a chain effect to their distributing agents, the Metropolitan Electricity Authority (MEA) and the Provincial Electricity Authority (PEA), which in turn sell electricity directly to users.

 “Today’s world has changed dramatically, and disruptions happen every day. Our challenge is how best to utilize digital technology to support our system and keep the cost of generating as low as possible, so that people can benefit from it,” said Piyapong Voragee, IT Assistant Governor, Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT).

EGAT collaborated with expert consultants to search for the most suitable data backup and recovery solution to address the various aspects of their operational needs. Veeam Backup & Replication was selected to provide Modern Data Protection to their various systems and ensuring continuous security and stability of electric power moving forward.

“Being one of Thailand’s leading corporations responsible for the country’s utility and power infrastructure, we can’t afford to risk data loss, so we looked for a service provider that specializes in backup and restoring data securely. Veeam is a perfect fit for us with their excellent performance and reasonable costs,” Piyapong said.
