One of Canada’s oldest & largest financial services firms sees significant cost savings and increased efficiency using Reduxio’s industry leading unified primary and secondary storage platform
SAN FRANCISCO--Reduxio Systems announced today it has optimized IT operations for BFL Canada, a financial services firm based in Montreal, Canada, by implementing its signature TimeOS™ storage operating system and its unique BackDating™, NoRestore and NoMigrate capabilities to achieve breakthrough results in time and cost savings as a result of data management and recovery through its converged primary and secondary storage management platform.
“After going through a rigorous proof of concept process, Reduxio matched our needs exactly in terms near-zero RPO and RTO ensuring immediate ease of use of the product.”
Headquartered in Montreal, BFL Canada is one of Canada’s largest insurance brokers with 19 offices across the country. With more than 1000 users, BFL Canada runs an entirely virtualized infrastructure, requiring a sophisticated yet user friendly advanced set up. To address their high volume of data inventory as well as their recovery issues, BFL Canada IT administrators looked to transition from their current storage platforms to the Reduxio TimeOS™ storage operating system and its unique BackDating™ capability, allowing users to recover application data to any second in the past while eliminating most of the complexity associated with managing storage.
Facing a high volume of daily transactions, which requires the ability to manage high input/output operations per second (IOPS), BFL Canada turned to Reduxio for a solution that could fulfill its data storage and management requirements. Since deploying Reduxio, BFL Canada has experienced significant success due to Reduxio’s ability to provide the capability of secondary storage management and instant data recovery features. The upgrade allowed for more efficient management within BFL Canada’s IT operations, alleviating significant labor productivity penalties for its IT employees through a more balanced allocation of resources and deliverables with its IT team members.
“By implementing Reduxio’s TimeOS™ and BackDating™ across the different BFL IT sites, Reduxio has proven to be a stellar enterprise solution that also provides optimal secondary data management for the company’s recovery point and recovery time objectives,” says Jorge Barreto, enterprise architect for BFL Canada and a certified VMWare Design Expert. “After going through a rigorous proof of concept process, Reduxio matched our needs exactly in terms near-zero RPO and RTO ensuring immediate ease of use of the product.”
In addition to streamlining IT accessibility to its virtualized infrastructure, BFL employees also greatly benefit from Reduxio’s technology by experiencing two times faster file access with flash-based storage and dramatically reduced average latency times. Reduxio was also able to set-up the system and have it up and running production workloads in less than 20 minutes.
