Challenge: Support and Protect Unstructured Data
Shandong Telecom, established in October 2002, is part of China Telecom, the state-owned telecommunication company. It is the largest fixed-line service and the third largest mobile telecommunications provider in the People’s Republic of China.
All the unstructured data, such as call detail record (CDR), voice calls, scanned copies of financial files, and so forth, are in the tape library via Veritas NetBackup (NBU).
Growing 4G traffic led to a massive increase in the volume of unstructured data, as well as an increase in purchasing costs of the backup software and tape library.
Data backup and recovery was a long process. Plus, the data in the tape can’t be restored.
The company needed to ensure business continuity of its key business systems, such as Management & Business Operation Supporting System (MBOSS).
