UGANDA TELECOM DEPLOYS ENTERPRISE STORAGE SOLUTION FROM NETWORK APPLIANCE AND IP PLANET

Telecoms

Network Appliance, Inc and IP Planet, last week announced that Uganda Telecom has chosen NetApp and IP Planet to deploy its disaster recovery and business continuance solutions. The solutions enable Uganda Telecom to lower its total cost of ownership by simplifying the center’s storage system, maintaining its business continuance, and providing data recovery in the event of a system failure. In addition, the solution will allow Uganda Telecom to host third party data on their secured environment.

Uganda Telecom has deployed NetApp® systems at its headquarters. The systems provide an automatic backup with NetApp SnapShot® technology and instant restoration with NetApp SnapRestore®, enabling Uganda Telecom’s IT to restore lost files in minutes rather than hours from backup tape. In addition, the system will provide an off-site economical disaster recovery solution enabling Uganda Telecom’s IT to mirror all their data to an economical online storage with NearStore® and also host third party data as their DRP.
