This key Western Australian state government department has been a CommVault user for many years. The implementation was more than adequately protecting the vital organisational data, however, with dramatic data growth in the last 24 months, backup durations were extending beyond ideal periods. Sometimes these were impacting production applications.


Perfekt CommVault specialists performed a health check on the environment and implemented the latest in version 9 functionality utilising the VMware (VSA) feature and source side deduplication (Advanced Disk).

The results were ground breaking, and they speak for themselves:

  • Weekly backup reduced from nearly 4 days to 2 days
  • Auxiliary copies to tape reduced from 4 days to just over 1 day
  • Exchange backups reduced from 1½ days to just over 1 day
