Emirates Steel drives digital plans, secures supply chain with Commvault

Mumbai: Commvault – a global data management company today said that Abu Dhabi based Emirates Steel has implemented Commvault HyperScale solution to support its digitalization plans and secure its manufacturing operations.

Emirates Steel, a wholly government owned enterprise has 11 plants which at full capacity produce 3.5 million tons of steel products yearly, including sheets, beams, and reinforced bars for the construction industry. The company’s digitalization efforts include moving its SAP modules to the cloud through Microsoft public cloud solutions.

Backup was a challenge with underlying technology scattered across different environments and running on aging Dell hardware,” said Mohammed Azam, IT Infrastructure Head – Emirates Steel.

“I initially liked Rubrik’s simple interface but realized, at the Commvault GO event, that Commvault HyperScale proved a more effective solution with an interface that was just as user-friendly but with the critical difference that we installed it easily and it works perfectly across our complex environment.”

Commvault’s HyperScale and Complete Backup & Recovery protect 400 terabytes of data hosted across SAP systems, including SQL databases, email archives, and 20 virtual machines. “Commvault HyperScale is easy to install and use,” said Azam. “Interoperability with both public cloud and on-premises environments means we can make IT investment decisions that boost our competitive advantage without having to worry about backup.”

Two Commvault HyperScale clusters replicate data between the company’s data center and disaster recovery site to provide robust business continuity capabilities. “Commvault gives us confidence that we can recover rapidly from any scenario, including potential ransomware attacks,” said Azam. “We can now restore a critical database in less than 90 minutes compared with three hours previously.”

Commvault also helps accelerate Emirates Steel’s digital roadmap by making it simple to add new services and datasets. “Any disruption to our operational systems and the production of steel would have a national impact. By maximizing data availability, we can boost efficiency and safeguard the manufacturing supply chain,” concluded Azam.

“We are proud to expand our longstanding relationship with Emirates Steel by adding our latest HyperScale functionality and flexibility,” said Wael Mustafa, Area VP – Middle East, South Africa & Turkey, Commvault.

“Our HyperScale solutions are offering increased data availability and business continuation assurance to many of the largest organizations across the region,” added Mustafa.
