EAV chose Veeam to transform its approach to backing up and restoring data, helping to ensure unprecedented business continuity for the expanding organization.
“We decided to standardize on Veeam for all our data protection needs because it offers all the capabilities we need now and for the future,” said Talamo. “It wasn’t necessary to shop around as it quickly became clear that Veeam was the ideal solution to cover our diverse IT environment.”
Using Veeam, EAV now protects around 1,000 employee accounts, dozens of servers in four data centers, and other digital systems in locations such as ticket offices. The organization stores backups on storage provided by a Veeam partner hosted at a separate location.
“We’re preparing to move the last few servers and systems to Veeam, after which we’ll retire our legacy backup solution,” said Talamo. “Thanks to Veeam, we’re establishing standard recovery times and recovery points across the entire organization even as we add new services and users to our environment.”
EAV relies on Veeam to enable incremental, immutable backups and orchestrate its recovery, enhancing its ability to recover fast and effectively from incidents such as cyber-attacks. With Veeam DataLabs, the organization tests and verifies the integrity of its backups, giving the organization’s IT team peace of mind that it can restore data as and when it requires.
“We’re now backing up data much more frequently and successfully with Veeam,” said Talamo. “I feel confident that our data is now better protected against cyber-criminals. We’ve also started using Veeam to automate the recovery process, accelerating our response and mitigating the potential impact of future attacks.”
When EAV rolled out Microsoft 365 to boost productivity and collaboration across the organization, it chose Veeam to protect this part of its IT environment too. Offering multiple recovery options, Veeam for Microsoft 365 enables the EAV IT team to respond to a wide range of user requests rapidly and efficiently.
“As the market leader for Microsoft 365 backup, Veeam was the obvious choice,” said Talamo. “It allows us to recover individual emails and files that have been accidentally deleted with just a few clicks, so our users can quickly get back to focusing on their work.”
Looking to the future, EAV expects data portability via Veeam to offer significant benefits. The organization is exploring the possibility of hybrid- and multi-cloud environments, and anticipates that Veeam will offer features that will enable it to protect data comprehensively regardless of its location.
“Veeam is always innovating and introducing new functionality,” said Talamo. “For an organization such as ours, which is poised on the edge of an exciting new phase of development, that’s a huge advantage. We look forward to continuing to connect the region of Campania, supported by exceptional business continuity from Veeam.”
