Organisations are now facing increased user demand, with the requirement for information and systems to be accessible at any time and from anywhere. As a Veeam partner, we work with organisations to enable the agility and business growth that every modern workplace needs. Veeam’s recent success story highlights the importance of having a cloud-first backup strategy.
Veeam has recently announced its partnership with Forbes Global 2000 energy company, Evergy. Providing cost efficiency and time-saving, Veeam has replaced the company’s legacy backup with Veeam Backup and Replication. Evergy provides energy for 1.6 million customers in the United States, and needed to consolidate their two existing back-up services to ensure they had a streamlined solution that complied with the highest standards of regulation.
Transition to Veeam saw Evergy’s backup automation increase and recovery reduce from many hours to just minutes. This ultimately saved 20 hours of IT resource each week. With data protection such a critical consideration for the organisation and reliability being key for this vital service, a move to cloud-based backup meant a solution that secures and restores quickly and easily, ensuring that Evergy continue to offer the best service for their customers.
Tackling the challenges, the energy company faced with their legacy solutions, through Veeam Backup and Replication, cloud backup provided a future-proofed solution with hardware and storage neutrality, affordable archive and encrypted backups. Evergy offer a critical service to customers so, it was vital to provide a cloud-based backup solution that ensured reliability and resiliency, supported by regulatory-compliant cyber security.
Rob Adams, Manager of Systems Engineering at Evergy said:
“There was a lot of unnecessary hands-on work with the legacy solutions,” he said. “We spent approximately 20 hours each week managing backups when what we really needed was simpler, streamlined data protection. Evergy is part of the national electricity grid, so reliability, resiliency and cyber security are always top of mind.”
