Al-Bank Al-Saudi Al-Fransi deploys enterprise backup strategy
Al-Bank Al-Saudi Al-Fransi (BSF) has created a storage infrastructure including a centralized backup system for both its head office and disaster recovery center, stated a press release.
The bank's new storage area network (SAN), implemented by STME and powered by VERITAS software and StorageTek automated tape libraries, enables BSF to consolidate the backup management of business-critical information on more than 50 of its servers, leading to increased performance and enhanced system reliability.
The bank's SAN strategy achieves a number of goals for BSF, including backup automation of the bank's Unix and NT platforms, minimizing application interruption through online backup, and more centralized management of BSF's entire backup environment.
STME provided the design, implementation, training, and support services for the BSF backup infrastructure deployment. The VERITAS NetBackup DataCenter solution enables BSF to centrally manage all aspects of its data backup and recovery operations. Following BSF's consolidation of its backup resources through the new SAN, the bank plans to embark on a wider enterprise system and server consolidation scheme.
BSF is a Saudi Arabian Joint Stock Company established in 1977. It is affiliated with Crédit Agricole Indosuez (CAI), which holds an equity interest of 31.1 percent. CAI is a fully-fledged member of France’s Crédit Agricole Group. — (menareport.com)
