Empowered by Druva, AmorePacific left behind its legacy data protection and embraced a cloud-first strategy, ultimately saving time and overall costs. Druva’s reduced expenses and complexities cut the total cost of ownership (TCO) of the firm’s backup and DR services by up to 30 percent. The enterprise also did away with all capex costs for backups and DR by eliminating the second facility and its duplicate storage systems. Moreover, AmorePacific accelerated full backup by 60 percent over its prior Veeam solution and sped up and simplified restores.
“I save an average of over 30-man hours every month now that we’ve moved away from Veeam’s complex workflow and consolidated our data centers,” said Chung. “Thanks to Druva’s source-side deduplication, we also reduced the volume of data to be backed up by over 50 percent. Compared to our Veeam solution, this very much lessens both the storage capacity and bandwidth needed to safeguard our data.”
Using Druva, AmorePacific leverages the petabytes scale of AWS. The firm no longer monitors its backup storage for overutilization and can retain data for longer periods of time without any capex investments. Additionally, with Druva’s pay-as-you-go pricing, it pays only for storage it needs, resulting in strong cost-efficiencies and predictable backup expenses. Budget uncertainties are now in the past.
For greater data protection, the Druva Cloud Platform provides robust security by encrypting all data in transit between the cosmetics company and AWS, and when at rest.
“With Druva’s service-oriented model, we can easily add new data sources,” concluded Chung. “We have holistic management of backups, reducing IT overhead, and can restore data at the granularity of just a single file. Based on our results, Druva’s backup technology is truly revolutionary. With its speed, scalability, and TCO savings, we now make decisions based on our business objectives rather than the restrictions of our legacy backup solution.”
