Intelligent backup

In the digital world the one thing that you don’t want to happen is data getting lost. Backups are an absolutely essential procedure at any company. But they often consume vast human and technical resources. Surely there’s a smarter solution? We delivered just that to our customer Raiffeisen with our Trivadis Intelligent Backup tool. Raiffeisen wanted to standardize all the various Oracle database backup processes. It was important to the database administrators that the databased could be easily integrated into the new backup tool, thereby reducing their workload, and that backup control was centralized and automated.

Dynamic data backup replacing fixed schedules

Trivadis Intelligent Backup is the new standard solution on Raiffeisen’s 80 or so AIX servers. Our tool plans and implements database backups autonomously in a new and unique process. The times when the backups for each database are implemented aren’t scheduled. Instead, dynamic backups are performed on the basis of central policies and depending on the database situation at any one time.

A new backup strategy based on teamwork

Raiffeisen was very impressed by the direct and uncomplicated collaboration with our development team. It particularly appreciated the competent solutions proposed by the team in the implementation phase, where new requirements were promptly integrated after each increment. The new backup concept was introduced in a stage-by-stage process, from proof-of-concept to the last server, without any interruptions.

Lower costs and a secure future

The complex, decentral backup configuration is now a thing of the past. Once defined, the backup processes run independently and new databases are automatically recognized and promptly backed up. Trivadis Intelligent Backup is a proactive system that dynamically adapts to new circumstances. This considerably reduces the burden of work falling to the database administrators.
