Media Coverage | Cuscal appoints Tecala for data centre backup project
Cuscal Limited, owner and operator of the well-known RediATM network and Australian provider of transactional banking, liquidity and capital management products has engaged IT infrastructure services specialist, Tecala, to design and implement a new disk-based backup system for the company’s Sydney production data centre and its Lane Cove disaster recovery data centre. Work on the project began earlier this month and is due for completion in late 2011. Tecala’s solution is based on a number of next-generation EMC technologies, including an Avamar Rain backup and de-duplication device, EMC Networker backup and recovery software and Data Protection Advisor for advanced analytical and reporting capabilities. It also includes a specially designed backup schedule that encompasses all Cuscal production IT workloads—from email and file servers through to critical back-end banking and settlement systems. Michael Magoulias, Manager Infrastructure Services, Cuscal said: “Our underlying requirement for this project is to update the backup technology and where possible, to realise efficiencies. We believe Tecala’s design will achieve this.
