LONDON, England – April 12, 2018: Veeam® Software, the Availability for the Always-On Enterprise™ innovator, today announced that Landmark Information, the property, land and environmental data specialist, has deployed Veeam Backup & Replication to support data centre migration and, going forward, to protect mission-critical applications and data more efficiently and effectively.
Landmark uses data and technology to help customers in the residential and commercial property industries streamline their operations and reduce risk. It provides a wide range of services to public and private sector organisations, architects, surveyors, lenders, planners, environmental consultants, lawyers, estate agents and homebuyers.
Data and technology are the lifeblood of Landmark’s business. These are central to its team of experts responsible for delivering the intelligence and solutions that enable its customers and clients to make informed commercial decisions. This information is critical – especially to Landmark’s ability to serve its customers.
Landmark initially deployed Veeam to assist with a major data centre migration project as Graham Smith, Infrastructure Team Lead at Landmark explains:
“We migrated 1,500 virtual machines between data centres with zero impact on our customers,” Smith said. “If we had used legacy backup for the migration, there would have been potential service outages, increasing the risk of missing contracted Service Level Agreements (SLAs). By using Veeam, we avoided service disruption and the migration went very smoothly.”
With Veeam, Landmark has seen backup and replication speed increase by 25%. And, because of the integration between Veeam and the Data Domain Boost software, Landmark Information can recover from a backup instantly.
“Veeam gives us confidence in the way we provide our products and services, with guaranteed uptime levels,” said Chris Tout, Infrastructure Team Lead, Landmark Information. “It enables us to consistently and reliably provide customers with the data and services they need, when they need it.”
In addition to protecting revenue, Veeam’s ease-of-use has helped save approximately 500 hours per year in employee time, allowing that time to be spent instead on important IT projects. “We don’t have to spend time troubleshooting backup and recovery like we did with legacy backup, and training a new colleague on Veeam takes very little time because the interface is so intuitive,” said Smith.
“Landmark Information is an example of Veeam’s capabilities at their most effective,” said Mark Adams, Regional VP, UK&I, Veeam. “When data is the lifeblood of an organisation – the thing it relies on to serve its customers and ensure revenue – then it must be protected by the most effective means possible. The capabilities in Veeam Backup & Replication are robust enough for Landmark Information Group to have conducted a data centre migration successfully, while also protecting revenue by helping meet SLAs on an ongoing basis.”
