Solution Category:Storage/Data Management
Project Title:MTN NIGERIA – Enterprise Data Management Implementation
MTN Nigeria’s ever-growing network of data and voice user required a large operation of skilled resources across all customer-facing and back-office department. With over 8000 staff, MTN is one of the largest employers of labour in the country. This comes with a price of rising growth in data generation and storage. Lots of data is shared daily with total sizes running in 2 Petabytes. The organization was faced with the challenge of storing this great amount of data across heterogeneous sources especially with regulations requiring retention of certain types of data for a specified period of time.
Average yearly spend on storage and related services rose by 50% YoY running into millions of dollars. The current situation caused high storage cost as well as the inability to meet compliance and regulatory requirement of storing information.
In the face of reducing budget allocation to IT and the need for investment in innovation-related expense, a solution that enables effective storage optimization and fulfil regulatory requirement was needed.
As a Veritas Platinum Partner, with a robust and client-centric engagement approach, which included a technical/Solution Definition Workshop, TigerLogic, was able to clearly propose a solution built on Veritas Information Governance Solution Capability (which includes Veritas Data Insights and Enterprise Vault).
The solution intelligently identifies, classifies, Index and archives data in line with organization requirement/policy. The Archived data is moved from the primary, more expensive storage to a secondary, cost-effective storage. The archived data is easily retrievable via a search from both outlook console or from a browser anywhere around the world. The solution works automatically and its transparent/seamless to the end-users.
The solution delivery also involved the migration of existing mail archives from EMC SourceOne to Veritas Enterprise Vault. The solution was designed was optimized to handle the high-volume process without disrupting business services.
