Magnum Picks Quatrio

FRAMINGHAM, Mass. and MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- Diligent Technologies Corporation, a leading provider of enterprise-class de-duplication and data protection solutions, and Quatrio, the industry leader in high performance information systems, today announced that Magnum Semiconductor has installed Quatrio's PIVOT 300 backup-to-disk solution equipped with ProtecTIER, Diligent's industry-leading inline de-duplication solution. Magnum, a leading provider of chips, software, and platforms for consumer entertainment systems, is the first mutual customer that has resulted from the newly formed Diligent/Quatrio partnership.

As a rapidly growing company, Magnum had outgrown its tape-based backup solution. With most of the files created by designers doing simulation and verification, the company had nearly 5 million different files per terabyte of storage. Magnum turned to Intellistore, one of the company's preferred technology solutions providers, to provide a solution that would address its current backup needs of 20 TB per week and have the ability to scale in order to handle Magnum's expected annual growth rate of 50 percent. Intellistore assembled and installed a Virtual Tape Library (VTL)/de-duplication appliance featuring its Quatrio PIVOT 300 server and storage offering and Diligent's ProtecTIER Enterprise solution, powered by HyperFactor™, the industry leading inline de-duplication technology. The appliance was deployed as the storage backend for Symantec's NetBackup 6.5 Enterprise to protect Magnum's heterogeneous data environment.

"Conducting a full backup with our previous solution took a great deal of time. It wasn't practical anymore," said John Wunder, director of IT, Magnum Semiconductor. "Since we installed the Quatrio/Diligent VTL appliance, we have reduced the time it takes to do a full backup by almost 80 percent. Individual client backup jobs now write to dedicated virtual tape drives rather than queue up for limited physical tape drives. In a word, backups at Magnum have become uneventful."
