Veeam Enables World Vision’s Humanitarian Aid to Stay Always-On

Veeam® Software, the innovative provider of solutions that deliver Availability for the Always-On Enterprise™, today announced that World Vision International (World Vision), a Christian humanitarian organisation, has appointed Veeam to address two of its most significant IT needs: reduce risk of data loss and improve availability. Thanks to Veeam, availability has radically improved by decreasing recovery time by 95% – from 90 minutes to less than five minutes.

With more than 46,000 staff across 105 countries supporting 2,500 programs, World Vision needs 24x7x365 access to virtualised applications and data that enable the organisation’s humanitarian endeavours. World Vision’s global data centre is located in Kuala Lumpur, providing support to all locations and programs worldwide. Nick Goh, IT Director of Global Infrastructure at World Vision said: “We use IT to enable our organisation. IT supports our programs and provides accountability for our work, such as building wells to deliver vital access to clean water.”

World Vision now uses Veeam Backup and Replication for five terabytes (TB) of daily data on 500VMs residing on NetApp NFS data stores to HP StoreEasy Storage, allowing for application-consistent backups from NetApp storage snapshots as often as needed, with little to no impact on production VMs.

Previously, World Vision used a legacy backup tool that was slow, unpredictable and limited staff members’ access, taking up to 24 hours to back up all VMs. This made it difficult for the IT team to meet recovery time objectives (RTOs) and service level agreements (SLAs) as a full restore would take up to 90 minutes.

“The legacy backup tool was traditional in nature, so it lacked recovery features that capitalized on virtualization like granular recovery and automated recovery verification. We needed a faster, more stable solution that offered advanced recovery features and made efficient use of backup storage. We narrowed our choices to two solutions, but only one offered the performance and availability we needed,” commented Goh.
