Mahindra Group Selects Veeam to Modernise its Backup Infrastructure

Veeam® Software, the leader in backup, recovery and data management solutions that deliver Modern Data Protection, announced that Mahindra Group selected Veeam Backup & Replication™ to modernise its backup infrastructure and improve recovery reliability. 

CNBC-TV1 named Mahindra Group as one of India's most trusted brands, with operations in 22 industries, including automobile manufacturing, agribusiness, defence and aerospace, financial services, IT, and more. The Mahindra Group's companies generate massive amounts of essential data, which must be protected.

As part of its digital transformation, the organisation is increasingly relying on analytics technology to help manage risk, increase revenue, and provide exceptional customer service. As a result, Mahindra Group's reliance on data continues to expand, and safeguarding the company from unplanned downtime has become critical to its long-term success.

As a result, Mahindra Group simplified and optimised its backup operations by implementing Veeam's solution to reduce risk and safeguard against data loss. Veeam Backup & Replication, a comprehensive corporate backup solution that protects all workloads, was offered to Mahindra Group to address the company's business concerns. The company can now increase its data security capabilities by backing up over 1,000 virtual computers as well as data housed on its physical infrastructure using Veeam Backup & Replication.

“Ensuring users enjoy non-stop access to core applications is critical to maintaining our competitiveness, accelerating innovation, and delivering fast, responsive customer service. Any disruption could have serious consequences and tarnish our excellent reputation,” said Ravindra Dhawan, Head of Infrastructure and Operations, Corporate IT at Mahindra Group.

By switching to the Veeam solution, the company has also successfully reduced the cost of its backup activities by 55%.

“Veeam Backup & Replication stood apart from all the other solutions. We were particularly impressed with the performance and the fact that the Veeam solution can be installed on commodity hardware — eliminating the risk of being locked in to using a single vendor’s hardware to preserve the integrity of our backups,” Jagdish Joshi, Deputy General Manager of IT Data Center at Mahindra Group, added.
