Debenhams is a leading international, multi-channel brand with a proud British heritage which trades from over 240 stores across 27 countries.
In the UK, Debenhams has a top five market share in womenswear and menswear and a top ten share in childrenswear. It is a market leader in premium health and beauty.
The multinational retailer wanted to enhance its Disaster Recovery capabilities, and better safeguard its power to serve customers – both in-store & online. Faced with increasing volumes of increasingly business-critical data, Debenhams wanted to boost its Disaster Recovery powers.
We helped the international retailer meet its immediate data challenges – like backing up 400TB of data in the best possible way – while laying a solid, secure foundation for the future.
As Phil Matthews, Debenhams DR Systems Manager explains:
“The most important thing to us? Thanks to Tectrade, we can now restore systems in the rapid timeframes we want.”
Debenhams was looking to:
Debenhams chose Tectrade’s Helix Protect Enterprise Managed Service.
We installed new, replicated servers at Debenhams’ DR site, allowing for the direct restore of business-critical data in the kind of timeframes its business demands.
We also created a common windows environment for all Debenhams’ Spectrum Protect (TSM) backups, and introduced smarter tiering of storage resources – ensuring less critical data sits on less expensive storage media.
Even better for Debenhams, we’ve taken on the burden of managing the new solution environment.
