BCBG jumps to modern style of data protection

Nov '11
BCBGMAXAZRIAGROUP (BCBG), a global fashion house encompassing more than 22 brands, has implemented CommVault Simpana software to help modernize its data management infrastructure and improve operational efficiency, replacing its legacy EMC Networker environment.

Facing an explosion of data created by digitized applications including fashion photography and clothing designs, BCBG required a more sophisticated and scalable solution that would better protect, manage and retrieve business critical data.

With nearly 2,000 users and data growing by approximately one terabyte each month, according to BCBG, its legacy system was plagued with reliability and performance problems, including unsuccessful Microsoft Exchange backups and failed server restores. A small, dedicated team previously spent up to six hours a day troubleshooting issues while managing backups that exceeded allotted windows.

With Simpana software, BCBG safeguards 52 TBs of vital data while greatly improving its ability to keep pace with aggressive data growth. Additionally, BCBG reports seeing huge improvements in internal productivity and operational efficiency. By switching to CommVault technology and redefining its approach to data management, BCBG has been able to protect twice as much data without increasing staff resources.

Administrative personnel time has been lowered to less than one hour each day, as CommVault's policy automation and robust reporting streamlines operations and reports via Blackberry to offer quick status updates while eliminating the need for around-the-clock monitoring.

BCBG leverages CommVault's NAS NDMP backup capabilities to dramatically reduce its full backup window, which was slashed from six days to eight hours according to BCBG. BCBG has experienced accelerated restores, with most completed in less than 10 minutes.

CommVault's Trend-Setting Singular Platform
According to BCBG, the strengths of CommVault's singular platform and unified product architecture have enabled deployment of a reliable, scalable data management foundation that meets both current and future needs.

BCBG is exploring CommVault's edge data protection solution to simplify the protection of data stored on executives' laptops and workstations.

Additionally, the company sees merit in CommVault's archive module and content indexing capabilities to automate eDiscovery and support growing data retention requirements. In particular, BCBG is interested in archiving its ever-increasing cache of photos to improve storage optimization.

According to BCBG, CommVault's technical support services are far superior to rival data protection vendors the company has worked with, especially because various Simpana software subject matter experts are readily available to provide special expertise as needed.

Supporting Quotes
Ron Gonzales, system administrator at BCBGMAXAZRIAGROUP:

"By switching toCommVault Simpana software, we've been able to easily accommodate continuous spikes in data storage while knowing we can recover anything should the need arise. I no longer worry if someone asks for something as I have total confidence it will be there."
