#1 Global Leader in Data Protection & Ransomware Recovery

Australian Paper Realises Digital Excellence

The company achieves long term data retention with an agile data solution

SYDNEY, Australia - November 20, 2018: Veeam Software, the leader in Intelligent Data Management for the Hyper-Available Enterprise, announced today that Australian Paper, Australia’s only manufacturer of office, printing and packaging papers, has overhauled and streamlined its IT solutions, realising its digital transformation journey.

Veeam Backup & Replication Enterprise Edition delivered a cost saving of AU$206,000 in five years, while reducing the risk of data loss and ensuring high availability of critical data with reliable backup and restoration in minutes.

To support Australian Paper’s mission of creating sustainable growth for the next generation, the availability of data and its retention is critical. With such a profound mission and commitment to sustainability, the organisation needed a solution that was technologically advanced and easy to manage, so that the IT team could focus its resources on innovating for its customers.

The legacy backup recovery solution that they were using did not align with Australian Paper’s needs and had become difficult to use as well as financially unviable. Working with IT consultancy, TRT Solutions, it identified Veeam Backup & Replication Enterprise Edition as the perfect-fit solution.

Veeam Backup & Replication Enterprise Edition delivers Availability for all virtual, physical and cloud-based workloads, from a single management console. For Australian Paper, the result has been a simple data management solution for its critical business data.

“After five years of working with our legacy solution, we discovered it was not aligned to our fundamental need for data retention. We needed a solution that would be simple and streamline our technology”, said Frank Braun, IT Operations & Infrastructure Manager at Australian Paper.

“Veeam works so well behind the scenes. It not only enables restoration of our data when needed but delivers increased cost-efficiency and simplicity of use in retaining our business-critical information.”

Rocco Scaturchio, Regional Sales Manager for Oceania at TRT Solutions Ltd said: “Australian Paper didn’t realise how time consuming its legacy solution backups were. Once it started using Veeam, it realised it didn’t need to create pages of documentation for others to follow recoveries. Veeam was much more intuitive and met all of the financial requirements too.”

“Australian Paper’s partnership with Veeam, is a testament to the growing demand for Intelligent Data Management”, said Gary Mitchell, Vice President of Veeam at ANZ. “At Veeam, we work hard to ensure customers are provided with effective and easy to manage data solutions to support their digital transformation journey.”
