In addition to implementing the existing hedging strategy, new and optimized processes were also introduced. This allows decentralized tape libraries to be accessed from different locations. „Other providers could not do that“, says Computer centre manager Schulz. Also the flexible license model of SEP sesam convinced. HÜBNER uses the volume license model, which exclusively has the frontside data of the data volume to be backed up in TB as a criterion. Thus all functionalities and components of SEP sesam in any size or quantity are unrestrictedly usable.
The migration to SEP sesam took place in cooperation with the SEP experts. Due to the different native backup interfaces, the different applications and virtual environments could be flexibly integrated and HÜBNER is prepared for further expansions. “We have created a joint concept in which the SEP specialists have strongly supported us. Thus it was possible in a short time to convert our backup infrastructure as desired and to optimize it for the future”, Computer centre manager Christian Schulz is pleased and adds: “SEP is now the central building block in our data backup concept and has successfully replaced the predecessor product. Some simplified processes also make life easier for us”.
