UNIVERSITY OF CANBERRA SAFEGUARDS DIGITAL EXPERIENCE WITH COMMVAULT AND AWS

Top Australian university safeguards digital services by combining Commvault Complete™ Backup & Recovery with Amazon S3 storage

SYDNEY, Australia - 8 October 2019 -- Commvault (NASDAQ: CVLT), a recognised global enterprise software leader in the management of data for cloud and on-premises environments today announced that the University of Canberra (UC) has implemented Commvault Complete™ Backup & Recovery in combination with cloud-based storage from AWS to reduce costs and support the uptime of its digital student services.  

“By integrating Commvault Complete™ Backup & Recovery with Amazon S3 and Glacier, we have reduced our overheads by AU$135,000. Our IT team can now focus on realising our digital vision for the students, rather than maintaining tapes,” said Justin Mason, Associate Director of Vendor and Operations for the university.

  Ranked 34 in the 2019 Times Higher Education Young University Rankings, the University of Canberra offers courses to around 14,000 students in Australia, Hong Kong, China, Vietnam, and Bhutan. It is also recognised as a leader in research excellence in disciplines such as genetics, clinical sciences, and public health.  

The university uses Commvault Complete™ Backup & Recovery to protect a wide variety of assets, including its student management system, website, finance platforms and business intelligence solution.  

“Student experience is a major pillar of our digital strategy, but this can only be delivered byconstantly ensuring that we are utlising  the latest best practices to protect our IT services to students and the infrastructure that deliver those.,” commented Mason.  

By moving away from a tape-based process to cloud-based storage service, the university can automatically stream disaster recovery backup copies to Amazon S3 Infrequent Access (IA) storage and archive data that hasn’t been touched for 365 days to Amazon S3 Glacier storage.  

“Ensuring data is recoverable in the case of a hack or cyberattack is no longer a nice-to-have, but rather a critical business decision to guarantee the safety of educational institutions in Australia as we know them. Much like a homeowner would invest in home insurance in case of burglary, universities are reognising their students’ data is equally valuable, and taking the appropriate steps to safeguard it  against the increasing threats directed towards higher education bodies today,” added Rob Malkin, VP ANZ at Commvault.  

“Thanks to Commvault’s native integration with AWS, we can support our long-term retention requirements and enhance the overall student experience by providing better more reliable digital services. Having the data stored and managed by AWS in a location separate from our main data centers gives us confidence that our data is always readily available,” continued Mason.  

The university can now execute a full off-site disaster recovery backup daily instead of once per quarter, which helps to prevent disruption to its operations. Backups are updated every 30 minutes with new data copied to AWS in a matter of minutes or at a maximum of one day.  

“Having a more robust and cost-effective disaster recovery platform supports our digital vision of becoming a global leader in higher education and research excellence,” ended Mason, who will be attending Commvault’s flagship annual conference, Commvault GO, in October 2019, in Denver Colorado.  

Recognised as a Leader in the latest Forrester Wave™: Data Resiliency Solutions, Commvault came out on top with the highest scores in the Backup Optimisation category.
